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.
