Aprius, a silicon and systems company that has pioneered PCIe over Ethernet based I/O Virtualization, today announced that the Wall Street Journal has included Aprius in the newspaper’s second annual list of the 50 most promising venture-backed start-ups. The widely anticipated list was published on March 9, 2011 and can be found online at http://on.wsj.com/fdDs7v.
Aprius PCIe over Ethernet technology enables a new billion-dollar category of network-attached PCIe Flash storage systems that combine the performance characteristics of in-server or direct-attached flash storage along with the centralization and management benefits of SAN-attached storage arrays. The technology will also enable the next generation of fabric computing where traditional server components are disaggregated over an Ethernet fabric and virtual servers are reconfigured on demand to support the requirements of the workload.
“Aprius employees are happy that their pioneering work is being recognized by the Wall Street Journal,” said Varun Nagaraj, CEO of Aprius. “These are two technologies that will certainly be around 10 years from now in the data center: PCIe and Ethernet. It’s only logical that PCIe over Ethernet will be a key building block for the future.”
Aprius is a venture-backed company developing technology to bring the performance advantage of PCIe Express to the Ethernet network. Aprius technology enables server vendors to build dense slot-less servers with virtual I/O by connecting the servers to PCIe devices such as SAN HBAs, disk controllers and PCIe SSDs over the Ethernet fabric. Aprius gives data center managers dedicated PCIe performance, but with the economics of sharing, and allows a broad range of applications with varying I/O needs to be virtualized on cost-effective and homogeneous server infrastructure, reducing costs by nearly 50 percent.
