Fastest Erasure Coding System in the Industry

The heart of the Big Parity® system is performance. With more performance comes the ability to add more parity drives. The reason storage devices don’t offer more than 2 check drives with RAID 6 is the complex math takes too much processing power – far more than is available in a typical storage controller. For the first time StreamScale’s patented Big Parity Verified Erasure Coding® system is able to take advantage of the multi-core computational power of modern processors and implement complex, advanced erasure code systems across 127 check drives if needed. In live testing against ZFS with 3 parity drives a Big Parity storage system was 25x faster. It was then tested versus JErasure and other higher performing erasure codes and was up to 30x faster. >>More Information
