Newisys and Kazan Networks Demo NVMe Over Fabric Flash Array

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov 10, 2016 – Newisys, a Sanmina (Nasdaq: SANM) product division, and Kazan Networks Corporation will be demonstrating the world’s fastest NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) connected Ethernet-attached flash array at the SuperCompute conference being held from November 14-17.  Newisys will show their industry leading 2U/24 NVMe SSD solution with Kazan Networks NVMe-oF solution inside. Newisys is a leading provider of data center products for enterprise and cloud applications.

“We are excited to partner with Newisys for this week’s demo, and their team has been fantastic to work with on this project,” said Joe Steinmetz, CEO of Kazan Networks.  “The combination of our two technologies has come together this week to demonstrate functionality and performance that simply hasn’t been seen before.”

Since showing a prototype NVMe-oF array at IDF16 in August, Kazan Networks has now developed a single 4x25Gb Ethernet card providing high performance, low latency connectivity to the Newisys shelf.  Newisys’ and Kazan Networks’ technology come together to deliver 10M IOPS of performance out of a single 2U system, equivalent to 40GBytes/sec of bandwidth.  In this configuration, there is less than 7 µsec of incremental latency associated with a fabric-attached SSD.

This high performance, low latency solution is ideal for enabling storage and compute disaggregation in advanced data center architectures.  By pooling and sharing storage, rather than isolating it within a server chassis, large data centers can enjoy huge improvements in storage utilization, along with other benefits.

“We are pleased to be showing a fabric-connected solution here at SuperCompute along with Kazan Networks,” said Eugene McCabe, EVP of Newisys.  “Our two teams have collaborated on this new and exciting technology, enabling the highest levels of performance.  Fabric-attached NVMe storage looks to be an extremely promising new opportunity for us.”

Newisys and Kazan Networks intend to productize this solution in early 2017 and are sharing details now with select customers.  The fully functional solution may be viewed at Newysis’ booth 4063 in the exhibit hall at the SuperCompute conference, November 14-17 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Viking Technology Collaborates with Sony Corporation to Bring ReRAM Storage Class Memory to NVDIMM Markets

SAN JOSE, California – August 6, 2015 – Viking Technology, a division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), and leading global manufacturer of NVDIMM, DRAM and solid state drive (SSD) solutions, today announced its collaboration agreement with Sony Corporation to develop the next generation of Non-Volatile Dual in-line Memory Module (NVDIMM) products leveraging ReRAM Storage Class Memory from Sony Corporation.

“Viking has a strong legacy developing Non-Volatile DIMM (NVDIMM) products over several generations from DDR2 to DDR4,” said Hamid Shokrgozar, President, Viking Technology. “This partnership with Sony solidifies a long term roadmap for our NVDIMM products by utilizing next generation ReRAM Storage Class Memory from Sony. This product roadmap is also very important for our customers, who are deploying this key technology in their next generation computing and storage products. It also sets the stage for future Persistent Memory module solutions not only for Viking but for the enterprise storage and server markets.”

This collaboration between the companies launches a significant advance in Storage Class Memory system product development, designed specifically for enterprise computing customers. Sony ReRAM Storage Class Memory delivers performance and endurance that greatly exceeds NAND flash, while simultaneously providing the data non-volatility and module memory capacity desired for persistent applications.

“We are excited and looking forward to the co-development with Viking Technology on the next generation of NVDIMM products,” said Terushi Shimizu, Senior Vice President and Deputy President of Device Solutions Business Group, Sony Corporation. “At this stage in ReRAM development, we are looking ahead to the implementation of this technology accelerating real-world cloud datacenter applications such as In-Memory Databases and Real Time Analytics. This will prove to be an exciting new chapter in the decade long development of our ReRAM memory technology.”

Non-Volatile DIMMs, often termed NVDIMMs, are designed to deliver high performance, endurance and reliability to next generation servers that are NVDIMM enabled. Traditionally, enterprise applications could not trust main memory (DRAM) because it is volatile (loss of data upon power failure). Therefore, batteries, Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS’s) and techniques such as check-pointing were used to ensure data security, but at the cost of performance. NVDIMMs now enable server and storage arrays to utilize persistent memory that delivers both the highest performance and 100 percent data security.

Thales and Sanmina Sign Strategic Cooperation Agreement for Advanced Radar Systems

OTTAWA, CANADA – May 27, 2015 – Thales Nederland (Thales), a major provider of safety and mission critical systems to the defence, aerospace and transportation industries and Sanmina Corporation, a leading integrated manufacturing solutions company today announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for the development and manufacturing of sub-systems for advanced radar equipment.

This non-exclusive strategic cooperation between Thales and Sanmina targets areas of joint development, engineering and production of components and sub-systems for Thales’ radar equipment. This equipment will be for export worldwide, and in particular will support candidate radar systems from Thales to the National Ship Procurement Strategy (NSPS) Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) Project. It is also expected that this Thales – Sanmina cooperation will extend to future technologies for radar components and sub-systems.

Thales and Sanmina fully appreciate and support the need for a strong Canadian based value proposition for the CSC program and other Canadian defence projects. This MOU is the framework to implement and deliver on these commitments in Canada. Sanmina designs and manufactures advanced RF and optical components and subsystems for the aerospace, communications, medical, industrial and other markets, including technologies and product solutions for leading edge radar applications.

Geert van der Molen, Vice President Surface Radar at Thales, had this to say, “This MOU is a logical next step towards implementing a stronger strategic cooperation with Sanmina. Our relationship with Sanmina originated during the development of APAR, the first ever active phased array radar and a very successful system, with important Canadian content. This MOU will extend our relationship beyond APAR to include Thales’ latest radar developments. We are very excited about the opportunities that lay ahead of us and are convinced that a combined Thales – Sanmina team can and will deliver significant benefit to both Canadian and global customers for these radar systems.”

“We are very pleased to expand our long standing relationship with Thales for development and production of their latest radar solutions, and especially in support of the CSC program”, said John Pokinko, Vice President of Engineering for the Optical and Microelectronic Division at Sanmina. “This MOU provides a solid framework to expand our RF/Microwave and Optical engineering and manufacturing expertise, focusing on next generation radar systems, with ‘Made in Canada’ technologies. Sanmina is further investing in a new, state of the art facility in Ottawa, to support high technology design and manufacturing requirements for our customers.”

Dale Potter, VP Defence Management Systems at Thales Canada adds, “This strategic cooperation by Thales and Sanmina typifies Thales’ long standing investment in Canada. It is the essence of the new Defence Procurement Strategy whereby defence spending will be leveraged to create excellent high tech jobs, R&D spending on advanced technologies, and entrance of a Canadian company into the Thales global supply chain. We are excited to continue our cooperation with Sanmina as we move into the Navy’s regeneration with NSPS and CSC.”
