MongoDB and Apeiron CaptiveSAN

When you rely on MongoDB to solve your Big Data performance and cost issues, there is only one storage platform, that in combination, will allow you to truly unlock the value of Big Data: CaptiveSAN

The world’s first near-zero latency end to end, native NVMe software defined storage and networking platform

Zero Compromise MongoDB Storage: CaptiveSAN

With MongoDB managing your data, shouldn’t you have something equally capable managing the data path? CaptiveSAN offers an historic first, delivering the highest performant, most dense, and lowest TCO, in the industry. CaptiveSAN, Zero Compromise MongoDB Storage

Near-Zero Latency Storage at Scale: Why MongoDB Craves CaptiveSAN

You’ve won half the battle by choosing MongoDB to gain efficiencies, but your data and the insight it contains is still being sequestered behind legacy latency filled storage and networking IO blocking infrastructure.

  • Unheard of 1.5-3.0 μs of added latency
  • Unheard of Usable IOPS per RU: 20 million per 2U
  • Unheard of Density: 720TB and growing per 2U
  • Unfettered Bandwidth per 2U: 96GBs

Unlock the Value of Big Data at Scale With MongoDB and CaptiveSAN

Traditional SAN, NAS, Scale-Out, Hyperconverged, and other SDS infrastructures offer little more than IO blocking bottlenecks, and unreasonable tradeoffs in the form of sprawl, management, overhead costs, and performance. You want to extract the maximum from your investment in big data by magnitudes, look at the solution differently, instead of adding layers and complexity in a workaround to gain minimal ground, remove everything, and get everything!

Take a Spin on CaptiveSAN:

We pass all of the performance of NVMe directly to the application with no IO bottlenecks slowing the data path down. Near-zero latency unlocks everything, IOPS and bandwidth in perfect harmony.

Near-Zero Latency SAN and What it Means to MongoDB: Everything

When everyone else zigged, we zagged as the story goes. Our engineers decided to look at the problem of storage latency from a different standpoint, instead of tweaking an existing already archaic storage process, they decided to redefine it, and remove it all. No storage controller, and no legacy latency adding network overhead, just pure straight unfettered access between application, compute, and storage.

We simply pass the native NVMe command from the application and CPU via a hardened layer 2 Ethernet tunnel optimized for transport, to a MAC address on the NVMe drive endpoint, with an FPGA managed process. By removing all of the latency in the data path, we unlock everything.
