Mercury Network Storage System: BlueArc’s Next Generation Hybrid-Core Platform
The Mercury platform leverages a hybrid-core architecture that delivers the highest performance available in mid-range systems. Employing field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and traditional multi-core processors, this architecture separates data movement and management processes that normally compete for system resources. Data is transferred between logical blocks in a point-to-point fashion, preventing conflicts or bottlenecks and ensuring consistently high performance. The hybrid-core architecture works in combination with BlueArc’s advanced data management services and an integrated Storage Ecosystem to deliver an optimized storage solution.
