Nov. 16, 2009 - PRLog -- ION Computer Systems, Inc. today introduced its enhanced SR-71 SpeedServer™ at Supercomputing 2009 in Portland, Oregon.  The SR-71 has an array of twenty four (24) of the highest performing Intel® X25-E solid state disks along with the latest Intel Xeon® processors and server board in a new, compact 2U (3.5” high)  chassis.   Performance has been enhanced using Intel 6Gbps SAS RAID controllers.  This combination of technologies delivers very high transaction rates measured in I/O operations per second (IOPS) at an affordable price.

“Our SR-71 SpeedServer™ incorporates the latest and fastest technologies available producing stunning results that will bode well for those looking for fast database servers, on-line transaction processing or any random I/O application” states Paul Scheremeta, Vice President of Marketing.

“We believe that ION's SR-71 SpeedServer™ is the beginning of a new class of servers where I/O performance is finally balanced with the improvements in processor and memory performance over that last decade,” says ION’s Chief Technology Officer, Keith Josephson.  “With system performance of 135,000 IOPS for 8kB random reads and 404,000 IOPS for 512kB streaming reads, the SR-71 SpeedServer delivers unprecedented system performance for a wide range of applications.”

Other system innovations include innovations in power and cooling including an 80Plus® power supply, ultra-low power of SSDs and the use of Intel’s RS2BL080 6Gb SAS RAID controller makes the SR-71 SpeedServer™ very energy efficient and extremely fast. The SR-71 SpeedServer™ also includes 7x24x4-hour on-site support as well as an On-Site Critical Spare Parts kit included in the cost of the unit.
