*Each SolidFire SF-series storage node includes Element OS software and is available as an encrypted or non-encrypted appliance.
**SolidFire’s effective capacity calculation accounts for Helix data protection, system overhead and global efficiencies including compression, deduplication and thin provisioning. SolidFire customers typically achieve an effective capacity range of 5x to 10x the usable capacity depending on application workloads.
