Solid State Drives with Unmatched I/O

Storm® SSD is designed to maximize performance by loading fast, performing rapid queries and creating a low server load. By doing this we have virtually eliminated the “bottleneck” effect of inbound and outbound data. In a recent benchmarking test, Storm® SSD 12GB performed 4K Sequential Write at 225,000 IOPS. By contrast, Storm’s non-SSD 8GB instance performed the test at 15,000 IOPS with Amazon EC2m1.large clocking in at 4,900 IOPS.

  • Increased Power, Speed and Performance
  • Speeds up to 100 Times Traditional SATA
  • Eliminates I/O Bottlenecks
  • Speeds Faster than Amazon EC2
