CloudSigma, a cloud server and virtual data center provider, launched a solid-state drive (SSD) storage system for a public cloud IaaS environment. The product is designed to help eliminate the growing storage bottlenecks and variable performance in the cloud brought on by traditional magnetic-based storage solutions’ inability to keep pace with the requirements of a multi-tenant environment. CloudSigma’s SSD storage enables companies to create a tiered storage system by staging critical application data and files on SSD, which effectively gets rid of the CPU wait time, the company says. This multi drive-to-server model improves system performance, because eliminating CPU wait time results in better resource utilization and performance.
