Cheetah Raid, PCIe Storage Solutions

Emerson Electronic are pleased to represent Cheetah Raid because as you are already aware today’s storage market is filled with equipment that is very complex to install, manage, and maintain. Cheetah has eliminated the complexity and cost from raid controllers. With Cheetah RAID Storage, you can remove our equipment from their boxes, power it on and you are ready to get to work. Cheetah RAID Storage supports all operating systems because they have NO DRIVERS.

Cheetah RAID Storage products are truly open system solutions

As you know, compared to hard disk drives, solid-state storage can perform significantly faster.

Comparing a single PCIe solid state storage device to a single hard disk drive (HDD), the performance can be hundreds of times faster. PCIe solid state storage devices, in particular, have very low latency because they operate directly on the system bus of the host server.

So even if the SSD technology in use had the exact same performance as a hard drive, the SSD technology would provide better overall latency because it has no seek time. Imagine running a large batch of complex database transactions where every I/O is subject to the seek time latency of good enterprise hard drives. Then imagine that same batch of complex database operations without the seek time latency and with faster storage devices. You will see why SSDs are so good for database applications and other enterprise workloads
