Flash Summit, Santa Clara, California and Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
Mangstor Inc., a leading supplier of high performance PCI-Express Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Solid State Storage Solutions, disclosed the new MX6000 family of software configurable intelligent flash storage devices. The MX6000 series utilizes multi-core In-Storage processing, software configurability, and open standards to deliver Flash memory devices optimized for performance and scalability.
“By moving 100 low power cores next to the Flash devices, we have created a software configurable Flash controller with additional compute resources available for In-Storage processing,” said Paul Prince, CTO, Mangstor. “Having more than 30 processor cores available for In-Storage processing can accelerate applications including native key-value lookups, memcached, database searches, and reduce VDI response times.” The Mangstor MX6000 full off-load controller utilizes near zero host resources, lowering overall system power and reducing OPEX in Enterprise and Cloud Data Centers.
The MX6000 software configurable architecture can be easily programmed to support multiple NAND vendor Flash devices and emerging memory technologies. “Using programmable multi-core controller technology, MX6000 optimizes flash channel bandwidth for performance and implements vendor specific error management to increase endurance, and does so all in software. This allows our development team to significantly reduce product development times and quickly adapt to rapidly changing Flash architectures,” said Trevor Smith, CEO, Mangstor.
The Mangstor MX6000 delivers an Enterprise quality solution through the unique combination of software controlled features and management capabilities:
- Supports Industry Standard NVMe drivers resulting in high performance data transfers on Windows, Linux, and VMWare operating systems
- Predictable high sustained performance IOPS, bandwidth, and lower-latency
- Scalable in-storage processing built to accelerate data storage and manipulation, accessed directly from user space through NVME extensions
- Enterprise class reliability and availability
- Industry standard SMART management interface delivers comprehensive, Flash specific monitoring and management to accelerate configuration and in-system field updates without taking servers offline
Mangstor will demonstrate the MX6000 family of software configurable intelligent storage devices to initial customers and development partners at the Flash Memory Summit, August 5-7, 2014, in Santa Clara, California.
