Velocity PCIe Flash Memory Cards

vmem-page-banner-velocity-cards2[1]

Building on Violin Memory’s patented hardware-based flash management and vRAID algorithms, Velocity PCIe Flash Memory Cards deliver sustained performance, spike-free latency and enterprise grade reliability, without wasting critical host CPU and memory resources. Velocity Memory Cards are self-healing in the event of media failures, allowing uninterrupted application service. From large NoSQL scale-out analytics clusters to smaller Microsoft SQL Server databases and Virtualized Infrastructure environments, Velocity Memory Cards deliver the ideal mix of capacity and performance density.

Self-Contained Design for Enterprise Scale and Reliability

Velocity Memory Cards leverage the same patented hardware-accelerated flash memory optimization algorithms that have been implemented and deployed in thousands of Violin Flash Memory Arrays. This approach yields many economic, performance and reliability benefits beyond the capabilities of traditional card architectures.
