Whiptail: A friend of big data, foe of storage vendors

Whiptail, the first company to successfully commercialize multi-level flash recently announced its second-generation family of NAND Flash storage products, Accela and Invicta. Accela is an enterprise class, single chassis, and standalone flash storage product. On the other hand Invicta is a modular storage array. It has some very impressive specifications:

  • 6-72 TB of NAND Flash capacity

  • Up to 650,000 IPOS

  • Upto 7 GB/Sec bandwidth

  • Asynchronous replication

  • VMWare and Citrix ready


The products are completely scalable. A mid-market customer can begin with Accela and can add Invicta through InfiniBand as the needs grow. Even within the Invicta chassis, a toup to 6 storage nodes with 6 to 12TB and one router can be added as lego blocks as the data needs evolve.

Analyst Speak

Whiptail’s announcement comes at a time when the buzz about big data has reached a crescendo.  And along with big data, vendors and analysts have started to talk about data obesity and therefore need for storage capacity. Granted that storage capacity needs are multiplying but big data poses a bigger challenge – extremely high throughput and read-to-write performance. Traditional storage vendors have tried to make higher-performing storage either by using as many spindles or constricting drives. None of them technically really address the velocity problem – real time streams of high volume information that is both structured and unstructured. Whiptail is taking the conversation away from storage-capacity play to velocity play thereby reducing the cost of transactions.

Even the channel partners wanting to develop or expand their datacenters and offer cloud-based services can use Invicta because of its multi-tennant, multiple addminstrators, and role-based security capabilities.

Invicta is an application acceleration platform that big data purveyors will love to the bane of other other storage vendors.
