Newisys Announces NVMe Over Fabric Flash Storage Platform Delivering Unprecedented Dynamic System Scalability, Throughput and IOPs

SAN JOSE, California, Aug 7, 2017 – Newisys, a Sanmina (Nasdaq: SANM) product division, today announced its new NDS22482F (Soquel) NVMe Fabric Storage System. This new platform delivers an unprecedented combination of performance, dynamic scalability, low-latency and robust multi-vendor interoperability.

This NVMe over Fabric™ solution will be demonstrated live at the Flash Memory Summit (Santa Clara, CA – August 8-10, 2017) showing what is possible in achieving the industry’s highest performance for a production ready SAN.  This demonstration represents a Software Defined Storage (SDS) solution with interoperability among vendors including Intel NVMe flash drives, Kazan NVMeoF fabric cards, IBM Spectrum Scale (clustered file system), and Mellanox 100Gb Ethernet switches and HBAs.

“Since the initial interoperability testing last year, Newisys has achieved a level of integration with our NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) bridges that puts them on top of the performance leader board,” said Joe Steinmetz, CEO of Kazan Networks.  “This new platform and combined solution delivers a whole new level of performance, scalability and interoperability — which is exciting to our customers and across the market, in general.”

Key Solution Advantages

Record-setting Performance: The Newisys NVMe Fabric Storage System model NDS22482F architecture is non-blocking and delivers 15 million IOPS and 75 GB/s while adding less than 7 microseconds to native SSD latency.  The solution scales both horizontally to increase performance and vertically to increase overall capacity.

New Level of Optimization: The Newisys NDS22482F is optimized to eliminate the latency added by traditional approaches—this is especially important when using solid-state drives (SSDs) with Intel® Optane™ (3D XPoint) technology.

Next-generation Storage Networking: The full performance potential of storage based on non-volatile memory (NVM) is unlocked by connecting the Newisys NDS22482F to switched fabrics using six 100Gb PCIe over Ethernet links, unlike traditional all-flash arrays (AFAs).

Linear Scale-out of Performance and Capacity: Unlimited scale-out is possible with the Newisys NDS22482F, because while every unit connects directly to the storage fabric, all remain centrally managed.

Flexible Management: The system ships with a single or multi-node management interface that enables easy deployment and management at scale in large data center environments.

“Our new NDS22482F platform has the ability to deliver its full performance over Ethernet with full bandwidth and minimal added latency,” said Eugene McCabe, EVP of Newisys.  “This addresses customer use cases ranging from High Performance Computing (HPC) and Enterprise Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), to Big Data Analytics and Big Data Warehousing applications with extreme performance.”

This product is currently in release and production ramp-up, with early orders for test and production systems being accepted now.  The fully functional solution may be seen at Newisys booth #733 in the exhibit hall at the Flash Memory Summit conference, August 8-10, 2017 in Santa Clara, CA.

Viking Technology Ships Industry’s Highest Capacity 50TB Solid State Drive

SAN JOSE, CA – July 11, 2017 – Viking Technology, a division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today unveiled its new Silo Solid State Drive, a SSD that delivers flash performance with the industry’s highest capacity (50TB). The Silo SSD, part of the Ultra High-Capacity (UHC) family of Viking products, enables significant data center space and power reduction compared to HDDs, while offering the same 3.5” form factor and standard SAS interface, easing the migration to flash.

Viking Technology’s UHC-Silo SSD series, powered by a next generation flash processor, balances performance, capacity, cost, and energy efficiency, making it ideal for applications such as cloud computing, big data, external storage systems, digital imaging and media, technical applications and cold storage. At 25TB and 50TB capacities, the UHC-Silo SSD products are the highest capacity solid state drives shipping today.

Purpose built for energy efficiency, the UHC-Silo SSD offers idle power consumption under 10 watts and active power usage of only 16W, greatly increasing overall storage capacity per rack while decreasing power per terabyte. Datacenters looking to transition to a plug-and-play UHC-Silo SSD can realize cost savings in power, space, and cooling of up to 80% per terabyte.

“Some system administrators are looking for a way to extend the useful life of existing hardware, since it may function perfectly but support too little overall capacity,” said Jim Handy of research firm Objective Analysis.  “With ultra-high-capacity SSDs, not only can they reach beyond the capacity limits of enterprise HDDs, they can also cut power and improve performance without having to replace the entire system, by implementing a simple media change.”

“There is no higher capacity SSD solution available today than the UHC-Silo SSD” said Hamid Shokrgozar, President, Viking Technology. “These drives enable datacenter administrators to easily migrate to SSD performance, along with a tremendous increase in capacity. With space and cooling being critical drivers for todays datacenters, these advantages are a game changer.”

The Army Acquisition Corps is responsible for developing, acquiring, fielding and sustaining the materials needed to meet the U.S. Army’s current and future mission requirements.

Visiting SCI helps these U.S. army officers advance their professional development by providing insight into a defense and aerospace technology firm’s day-to-day operations. For SCI, hosting the officers represented a valuable opportunity to foster partnerships with future Army Acquisition leaders.

“This was a great way for SCI to give back to the Acquisition Corps, and at the same time help develop the skills of officers who provide superior acquisition support for the U.S. Army,” SCI President Mike Underwood said. “Everyone at SCI was delighted to share their time and experience with the next generation of Army Acquisition leadership.”

The visit included a tour of Sanmina and SCI’s 685,000-square-foot facility and a Q&A session with SCI’s leadership team. Roundtable discussions covered several topics related to acquisition, including program management, contracting, business development, engineering & product development, manufacturing, test and quality control.

Headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, SCI delivers unsurpassed quality and support to the defense and aerospace sector. For more than 55 years, SCI has designed and provided some of the most advanced systems for military and commercial aviation, ground tactical and other defense applications, as well as industrial and space-flight programs.
