Our hardware: AiRE IntelligentFiler

At the core of AiRE’s exceptional performance lies our meticulously chosen hardware platform, AiRE IntelligentFiler.

We recognize that data storage isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, which is why our hardware is optimized to cater to a wide range of workloads. Whether your data needs evolve over time or you’re in search of true concurrent multiprotocol support, AiRE’s hardware platform has got you covered. We ensure automatic alignment of on-disk behaviors, optimizing both price performance and price capacity.

Key points

  • The system processing unit (SPU) can be single or redundant, offering either single or dual controllers (controller a, controller b).
  • Standard hardware configurations offer both hybrid-flash (HF) and all-flash (AF) disk packs tailored for storage tiers 0-3.
  • HF configurations feature single or dual controllers with a mix of HDDs and SDDs.
  • AF configurations always come with dual controllers and high-performance SDDs, including NVMe.
  • Capacities range from 10+ TiB many to 350+ TiB, with scalability options to petabytes as needed.
  • Hardware supports various combinations of standard disks, facilitating easy performance and capacity scaling.
  • Flexible upgradability extends the hardware lifecycle, adapting to changing operational needs, workloads, and storage tiers.

Hardware composition

The chassis holds a system processing unit (SPU) and disk expansion units (DEUs). The SPU can be configured with either a single controller or dual controllers, identified as Controller A and Controller B.

Disk configuration (Tier 0-3)

Standard configurations offer hybrid-flash and all-flash disk packs for storage tiers 0-3. Hybrid setups can be single or dual controllers with HDDs and SSDs, while all-flash setups always include dual controllers utilizing high-performance SSDs, including NVMe. Capacities ranging from 10+ TiB to 350+ TiB, scalable up to petabytes when needed.

Long hardware lifecycle

Extended hardware lifecycle is achieved through versatile disk pack configurations, allowing seamless scalability in performance and capacity. The adaptability of the hardware accommodates the changing in demands, workloads, and operational requirements without causing disruptions.

Dual controller

No lock-in

Lean and agile


One platform, a multitude of configurations and possibilities.

Our newest generation of AiRE IntelligentFiler creates the perfect foundation for a more lean and agile IT Infrastructure. The modular design also dramatically reduces the TCO and the overall environmental impact, which fulfills our vision of next-generation green data storage.
