SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 6, 2019 – Smart IOPS, a leader in high performance storage solutions, has set a new bar for Aerospike Certification Tool (ACT) benchmark. On ACT benchmark, Smart IOPS’ high performance Data Engine™ T2 HP solid state drives achieved an exceptionally high performance of 825,000 transactions per second (TPS), representing a 3x delta over nearest competition. ACT is a particularly challenging database benchmark due to its stringent requirement on adhering to less than millisecond latency while benchmarking for transactions per second under multiple workload conditions for a 24-hour test period. Smart IOPS’ Data Engine™ T2 HP SSDs boast unparalleled performance of 1.7M random IOPS or 6.8GB/s bandwidth at lowest latency in its class. Smart IOPS’ drives are offered in capacities ranging from 3.2TB to 64TB and enable our customers to deploy I/O-intensive work loads like AI/ML, Databases, Fin-Tech, Ad-tech, Fraud Detection, CDN, and OLTP/OLAP with greater quality and cost savings.

“We are delighted to offer world class SSD products to our customers,” said Dr. Manuel d’Abreu, Chief Scientist and Sr. VP of Smart IOPS. “Our SSD’s high TPS performance at low latency minimizes infrastructure cost and offers ability to absorb sudden peak demands reducing greatly any failure probability for mission critical applications,” said Dr. Manuel d’Abreu. “Smart IOPS Data Engine™ T2 HP drives offer proven 2x to 4x performance benefits for various types of databases including Relational, NoSQL, Key-Value, and Time Series as compared to other leading industry drives,” added Dr. Manuel d’Abreu.

“Aerospike customers are at the forefront of innovation and the envy of their industry peers. Our next-generation NoSQL database powers hyper-scale data solutions that give companies an unfair competitive advantage while reducing data infrastructure complexity and cost,” said Srini Srinivasan Chief Product Officer and Founder of Aerospike. “We are excited to be working with Smart IOPS to optimize and test the Aerospike database to support the transaction performance our customers require”
