solidfire review

SolidFire was a great company to work for, I was only here for a short time due to it being acquired by NetApp but the culture is excellent. Compensation is also very competitive, and they do a lot to make sure employees are happy. They are always looking to expand the product and keep up with new technologies.

The main focus of the organization is to provide a high-performance and high-efficiency primary storage solution for cloud service providers. This is accomplished through a solid-state, scale-out architecture with patented efficiency technologies that dramatically reduce power, cooling, and capacity consumption. The company is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado and employs more than 250 people.

Founded in 2010, solidfire has evolved into a leading all-flash storage system with a unique scale-out, shared-storage architecture. SolidFire’s patented technology provides industry-leading performance, density, and value. This enables cloud service providers to guarantee sustained performance to thousands of virtual machines from a single cluster.

SolidFire offers a range of solutions for managing data storage and automating the deployment, configuration, management, and consumption of applications, services, and resources across multiple clouds. The SolidFire Enterprise SDS platform can be deployed on the hardware of your choice and offers a pay-as-you-grow model.

The SolidFire platform features an operating system called NetApp Element Software (formerly the SolidFire Element OS) which is based on Linux and designed for SSDs and a scale-out architecture. The OS uses SAN protocols iSCSI natively and Fiber Channel with two gateway nodes and supports a REST-based API for storage automation, configuration, and management.
