GRAID turbocharges storage with SupremeRAID card capable of 110GB/s sequential read

The price may drain your wallet even faster.

Following on from last year’s effort, GRAID technology unveils a new RAID storage beast, boasting an incredible 110GB/s read and 19 million IOPS.

The SupremeRAID SR-1010 is a two-slot card measuring 167.6mm (L) x 68.9mm (H), weighing 306g, and consuming 70W of power. Just like its predecessor, SupremeRAID SR-1000, it employs an Nvidia GPU for RAID acceleration, but this time there’s a more powerful RTX A2000 (Ampere) GPU instead of T1000 (Turing).

In RAID 5, GRAID claims this new PCIe 4.0-based card can achieve 110GB/s sequential read, 22GB/s sequential write, and up to 19 million IOPS. Heady numbers.

These speeds, however, are on Linux. On Windows, things are a bit ‘slow,’ hitting only 74GB/s read, 15GB/s write, and two million IOPS. That’s heck of a reduction.

GRAID’s card performance derives from its unique hardware design, based on Nvidia’s RTX A2000 workstation GPU, allowing it to process I/O without bothering the CPU, all while protecting data.

Finally, SR-1010 supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and is compatible with Windows Server 2019/2022 32bit/64bit, CentOS, Linux and more.

GRAID SupremeRAID SR-1010 will be available starting May 1, although no price has been disclosed yet. Don’t expect it to be cheap.
