“Savage IO promises blazing performance with software-agnostic system” by Dave Raffo, TechTarget
Savage IO today launched its first storage system, SavageStor, a software-agnostic combination of servers, storage and controllers designed to run software-defined storage.
Savage IO does not supply the storage management software for its SavageStor system. The startup concentrates on hardware designed for high throughput. Its first system, the SavageStor 4800, is built mainly for high-performance computing (HPC), big data analytics and cloud storage.
“Basically, this is the hardware you would need to run your software-defined storage on,” said Russ Fellows, senior analyst at Evaluator Group Inc. in Boulder, Colo. “Savage IO is designed with higher bandwidth than most alternative platforms. I believe their target markets are a good fit, which are HPC and data analytics, video surveillance and video repositories, along with generic cloud storage platforms.”
