SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 30, 2018 – Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced that it has won the Best of Show Innovation Award at the 2018 Flash Memory Summit for the Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application. Viking Enterprise Solutions earned this top honor, in conjunction with Intel, for a live demonstration of a real-time analytics engine that leveraged NVMe technology to achieve industry-leading performance and cost savings, compared to traditional methods. The award builds on its leadership in NVMe technology that previously won Viking Enterprise Solutions the Best of Show Innovation Award in 2017 for its NVMe-over-Fabric solution, the NDS22482F.
Viking Enterprise Solutions’ demonstration highlighted how a real-time analytics engine can help enterprises dramatically reduce capital expenditures, while accessing higher capacity, in-memory datasets to deliver better and faster analytics insights. It also revealed that processing costs could be reduced by up to 50 percent compared with traditional RAM-centric solutions, while delivering 85 percent of the equivalent performance.
Multiple systems were used in the demonstration to highlight multi-vendor interoperability with Viking Enterprise Solutions NVMe platforms to achieve greater efficiency, performance and cost savings, including:
- Viking Enterprise Solutions NDS1162 Storage Server
- Viking Enterprise Solutions NDS2244 NVMe High Performance JBOF
- MPstor OSA-Fx60 All-Flash Array
- Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives with Intel® Memory Drive Technology (IMDT)
“Our panel of judges were impressed by a game-changing NVMe storage solution that can address business-critical big data real-time analytics applications,” said Jay Kramer, chairman of the Awards Program and president of Network Storage Advisors Inc. “We are proud to select Viking Enterprise Solutions and Intel for the Best of Show Innovation Award for bringing to market an NVMe over Fabrics solution that achieves new levels of performance running in-memory databases, providing IT organizations with the benefit of a virtualized infrastructure for a CapEx and OpEx advantage.”
“Viking Enterprise Solutions is incredibly honored to have won the Best of Show Innovation Award for two consecutive years for our NVME storage and serving solutions,” said Dan Liddle, VP of Marketing at Viking Enterprise Solutions. “This award brings recognition to just one of the many use cases that can benefit from our broad portfolio of NVMe solutions.”
“Achieving this level of industry recognition in such a competitive space further validates our strategic approach,” added Rick Kumar, SVP of Viking Enterprise Solutions. “It also speaks directly to the strength of the team we have assembled at Viking Enterprise Solutions.”
The award-winning product demonstration was designed to specifically address limitations often encountered when large, fast data streams must be processed very rapidly. Typically, the total RAM available for a distributed in-memory database limits an engine’s ability to scale, requiring the addition of server nodes to expand the aggregate amount of memory available. This can unnecessarily increase the load for compute resources and negatively impact return on investment.
Viking Enterprise Solutions showed how enterprises can overcome the memory-capacity barrier by allowing non-volatile memory to complement RAM, expanding the addressable memory available for server nodes running in-memory databases. Large amounts of fast memory in the form of an NVMe expansion JBOF were provided, leveraging NVMe drives within the Viking Enterprise Solutions storage platform.
In addition to leading the market with ultra high capacity and high-end flash systems, Viking Enterprise Solutions has a long history of providing storage and storage serving platforms to hyperscale and enterprise data centers worldwide. The company offers a wide range of high capacity, high density storage and storage serving systems for cold and primary storage applications using both spinning disk and flash storage media.
