There is fast, then there is "Scalable Fast"
Scalable Informatics (SI) makes fast storage systems. How do we know they are fast? Because SI provides the numbers upfront directly from the command line in founder Joe Landman's blog; Scalability.org. This year at SC12, SI was showing remarkable numbers, both in capacity and performance, for some of their products.
To give you an idea, consider the their JackRabbit JR4 60 unit. It is a 4U storage device that can hold up to 60 HDD's which translates in to 240 TB or data (that is just about a quarter petabyte of storage). In addition to high density, the system is specified at 7,000 MB/s read and write throughput. That works out to reading a 1 TB file in 144 seconds. You can see some real benchmark numbers on Scalability.org.
