Pavilion Data Disrupts Conventional Storage Buying Model with OPENCHOICE StorageTM, Enabling Bring-Your-Own-Media

August 21, 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--Pavilion Data Systems, an industry leader in NVMe-oF storage technologies, today announced OPEN CHOICE Storage, an all-inclusive, cloud-like subscription storage model. OPEN CHOICE Storage disrupts conventional storage selling practices by freeing customers from capacity-based pricing and the three-year refresh cycles that prevent them from taking advantage of the latest technological advantages for CPU, memory and SSD components. Customers purchase the Pavilion Data array with the number of controllers needed to attain the desired level of performance and license the number of media slots required to support their capacity needs. Pavilion never charges based upon the capacity of the drives used in these media slots.

Removing Locked-In Refresh Cycles

CPU, memory and SSD manufacturers are constantly innovating, but the three-year refresh cycles of traditional storage OEMs prevents customers from taking advantage of these innovations. OPEN CHOICE Storage enables IT to buy, scale and repurpose media on their own timelines.

No More Trapped Capacity

OPEN CHOICE Storage empowers IT organizations to free capacity that was traditionally trapped inside conventional storage and server devices and repurpose it when and where they want by simply dropping it into a Pavilion Data media slot. The company has qualified drives from the major drive manufacturers and qualifies new drives on a regular basis.

Flat, Predictable Pricing

OPEN CHOICE Storage offers an all-inclusive, cloud-like subscription model that bundles maintenance, support and software into a flat, predictable price that will not change for the life of the array.

“In today’s dynamic business environment, IT organizations are looking for more flexibility in meeting their evolving enterprise storage needs,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president of Storage at IDC. “Programs like Pavilion Data’s new OPEN CHOICE Storage provide more degrees of freedom in choosing the storage media, which best meets their requirements, giving customers the ability to quickly move to new media technologies as they become available while still leveraging the unique benefits of Pavilion Data’s storage architecture.”

“ OPEN CHOICE empowers IT like no other storage array by eliminating capacity-based pricing,” said Gurpreet Singh, CEO of Pavilion Data. “With a 50-percent lower cost of acquisition than all flash arrays and three times better utilization than DAS, OPEN CHOICE makes storage infinitely simpler to procure and manage.”

In May 2018, Pavilion Data launched the first NVMe-oF storage array for modern rack-scale applications. Delivering up to 120 GB/s read bandwidth and 20 million 4K IOPS with 100µs latency in a 4U Chassis, the Pavilion array has the industry’s highest storage performance density.
