SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 5, 2019 – Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced that it will have a significant presence at the upcoming Flash Memory Summit, August 6-8 in Santa Clara, California. Thought leaders from the organization have been invited to lead three sessions on topics that cover optimizing HCI for NVMe-based flash storage platforms, leveraging distributed key-value stores for performance and scalability on flash media and winning marketing strategies for enterprise flash storage. In addition, experts from the organization will lead two “Chat with the Experts” sessions and a “Pitch Party” theater presentation on the topics of HCI and NVME-over-Fabric.

At booth #834, Viking Enterprise solutions will conduct two live demonstrations, including an HCI solution that dramatically improves performance and reduces latency. The second demonstration will highlight its previously announced Obsidian Storage Appliance products that provide robust Software Defined Storage (SDS) and Distributed RAID solutions.

Six Event Activities Led by Viking Enterprise Solutions Experts

Viking Enterprise Solutions leaders will lead three main sessions that include:

    • Optimizing Hyper-Converged Infrastructures for NVMe-Based Flash Storage, Hyperconverged Infrastructure Applications Track, HYPER-201B-1, August 7, 9:45 a.m. The optimal choice for hyper-converged infrastructure has changed as NVMe and NVMe-oF become the most common flash storage connections. The new generation of HCI software stacks has proven well-suited for this unprecedented scale, density, and diversity of workloads, putting pressure on resources and forcing infrastructure designers to consider new approaches which add to system cost and complexity. In this session, Richard Elling, principal architect at Viking Enterprise Solutions, will address optimizing HCI with NVMe for various application areas, such as analytics, AI/ML, IoT, database searches, transactions processing or video and image processing.
    • Leveraging Distributed Key-Value Stores for Performance and Scalability on Flash Media, Key Value Store and Linux Technology Software Track, SOFT-202-1, August 7, 3:20 p.m. Richard Elling, principal architect at Viking Enterprise Solutions, will evaluate the impact of three configurations using different types of flash media and persistent memory for the Key Value store on the transaction latency and analyze the resulting scale characteristics.
    • CMO Panel: Flash Will be Everywhere but the Customer Still Rules, Business/Marketing Track, 202-A-1, August 7, 3:20 p.m. Marketing enterprise flash storage is difficult due to the fast-changing and complex nature of the technology. Daniel Liddle, vice president of Marketing at Viking Enterprise Solutions and peer industry marketing executives will discuss their most effective, winning strategies.

Experts from Viking Enterprise Solutions will also lead the three following activities:

    • Hyper Converged Infrastructure “Chat with the Experts” table, August 6, 7:30 p.m. A Viking Enterprise Solutions expert will be available to participate in one-on-one discussions about HCI with attendees.
    • NVMe-over-Fabric (NVMeoF) “Chat with the Experts” table, August 6, 7:30 p.m. A Viking Enterprise Solutions expert will be available to participate in one-on-one discussions about the latest developments in NVMeoF with attendees.

Newisys Renames Business to Viking Enterprise Solutions, Announces New Products

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Nov. 12, 2018 – Newisys, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced that it has been renamed Viking Enterprise Solutions. The division unveiled its new brand at the Super Computing 2018 (SC18) event, taking place November 12 – 15 in Dallas, Texas.

The new name was selected to better represent its expanded product portfolio for hyperscale data centers and storage OEMs. In addition to providing JBOD storage systems, Viking Enterprise Solutions has added advanced storage servers, a range of hybrid and all flash products, new NVMe-over-Fabric solutions, as well as a new set of application-specific storage software to its portfolio.

“Viking Enterprise Solutions builds on Sanmina’s existing Viking Technology brand of memory products and significantly increases the strategic perception and impact of these businesses for Sanmina,” said Dan Liddle, vice president of Marketing at Viking Enterprise Solutions. “With JBODs, storage servers, industry leading all flash solutions and now application software, the new brand reflects our broader strategic solution set.”

Also today at SC18, Viking Enterprise Solutions introduced new hardware and software platforms at booth #4029, including:

  • NDS-41020 storage array: A new 4U, 102 drive HDD-based SAS/SATA JBOD storage array that provides market-leading density, capacity and price-per-GigaByte ($/GB). The NDS41020 is configured with 3.5 inch HDD drives having a variety of capacities from a number of component vendors, and provides cost advantages due to its smaller form factor and higher density. The JBOD connects to external servers using SAS or SATA interfaces for seamless integration into existing architectural infrastructures.This product provides the ability to scale, based on its tremendous capacity in a 4U form factor with a design that is enterprise grade, highly redundant, with no single point of failure. Additional highlights include FRU-based field repair capabilities which simplify and reduce support costs.
  • New application-specific software packages: Viking Enterprise Solutions products support a wide-range of third-party software solutions. We now also offer two application-specific software packages:
    • Software targeted for high performance computing (HPC) and media and entertainment (M&E) applications. This software is specifically targeted for HPC and M&E applications that require up to 5M IOPs and 22GB/s of throughput with high availability, and without the overhead of data management services.
    • VES DRAID management software that leverages distributed RAID (DRAID) technology to deliver up to 20 percent improvement in I/O data rates. Depending upon configuration, it delivers rebuild rates that can be tens to hundreds of times faster compared to traditional non-distributed RAID arrays.

Live NVMe-over-Fabrics Demonstration of Scalable Distributed Database Applications
Viking Enterprise Solutions will also conduct live demonstrations at SC18 booth #4029, showcasing how its award-winning NVMe-over-Fabrics platform can reduce latency and improve resiliency and efficiency for common scalable distributed database applications such as Cassandra. The findings and research results will be discussed at a session during the Exhibitor Forum entitled Cassandra in Dockers Deployment using an NVMe Fabric on November 14 at 2:30 p.m. in room D173.

“We are proud of the back-to-back ‘Best of Show’ awards we’ve recently won for our products under the Newisys name, and believe Viking Enterprise Solutions better reflects the range of our hardware and software products,” said Rick Kumar, senior vice president of Viking Enterprise Solutions. “You will continue to see a cadence of new, leading-edge products and technologies rolled out in the coming year as we build upon our accelerating market momentum.”
