SolidFire Helix

  "... All data within the system is replicated with SolidFire Helix
   technology.  If a failure occurs at the drive or node level,
   the subset of data is instantly re-replicated across the cluster
   to maintain data redundancy. ..."

  "... SolidFire Helix data protection prevents the performance impact
   of traditional RAID by isolating individual device failures. In a
   SolidFire storage system any device failure only affects performance
   relative to that devices size within the system. If a single drive
   fails out of a 1000 drive system performance will only degrade by .1%."
