SystemFabricStor Appliances 

SFW manufactures the SSA family of storage server appliances in 2U, 3U and 5U enclosures with 12/16/24 2.5” or 3.5” HDDs or SSDs providing a wide range of data capacity for OpenFabrics targets with Linux such as SRP (SCSI-RDMA), iSER (iSCSI-RDMA), R-NFS, and file systems such as Ceph, Lustre OSS, GPFS, Gluster, etc. The SSA family supports 10, 40 and 56 gigabit RDMA Ethernet and InfinBand fabrics. 

The SSA family is optimized for bandwidth and IOPs performance by utilizing RDMA on the server fabric port with  the highest available bandwidth and the IOPs and device characteristics of the drives, whether SSD or HDD deployed. With high rotational speed HDDs or high bandwidth SSDs utilizing Sandy Bridge processors, FabricStor SSAs top end performance  is in the 6-7 Gigabyte per second range.
