IntelliFlash NVMe, All-flash Array, and Hybrid Flash Family
Western Digital's IntelliFlash family provides turnkey solutions for customers seeking the combination of high performance, massive data consolidation, built-in disaster prevention, and simplified data management. The family includes one of the first unified, NVMe flash arrays, the IntelliFlash N-Series, which leverages the speed and efficiency of NVMe to deliver up to 3x the performance of non-NVMe all-flash arrays, with latency as low as 200 microseconds. All IntelliFlash arrays place fast data across multiple grades of flash storage media for maximum performance acceleration and consistent responsiveness. With an extensive set of data services powered by IntelliFlash OS 3.9, including inline compression and deduplication, along with native support for SAN and NAS protocols, IntelliFlash arrays have been deployed at thousands of customer sites worldwide to accelerate applications common in transaction processing, real-time analytics, databases, virtualization, and file services workloads. The IntelliFlash family comes in a range of effective capacity points up to 1.3PB1,2.
With thousands of IntelliFlash customers around the world, Western Digital has been recognized by Gartner as a "Visionary" in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays3 and has received extremely high ratings in peer reviews in the recent Gartner Peer Insights 'Voice of the Customer': Solid-State Arrays report for Western Digital IntelliFlash arrays4.
