Mangstor and Mellanox Technology to create the next generation of NVM Express™ shared storage solutions.

Ethernet Technology Summit - Mangstor, a leading developer of Intelligent Storage Solutions for Web-Scale and large enterprise data centers, today announced the company is working with Network vendor, Mellanox Technology, to create the next generation of NVM Express™ shared storage solutions. The NMX-Series All-Flash-Array products build on Mangstor’s leading performance MX6300 SSDs, combined with Mellanox's industry leading line of ConnectX® VPI adapters with support for InifiniBand and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) providing over 10GB/s bandwidth at latencies comparable to local server based NVMe devices.

The Mangstor NMX Series appliances address the growing need of applications requiring the highest read/write bandwidth with low latency to shared flash storage for cluster server configurations. The Mellanox adapters support a Mangstor pre-1.0 version of NVMe over Fabrics using either RoCE or InfiniBand to provide high throughput at the lowest latency. Mangstor’s optimized storage software and SSDs provide a non-proprietary solution which considerably outperforms traditional SAN-attached All-Flash and Hybrid Arrays, and enables customers to seamlessly evolve their traditional server attached storage to the rapidly growing Server-SAN storage environment.

"Mellanox's 40/56Gbps high bandwidth, low latency, and ConnectX-3 adapters have helped us to create an ultra low-latency server-attached shared storage alternative to the other “all flash arrays” available today, with much higher performance. We are demonstrating over 10GB/s of 4k random reads, and 8GB/s of writes using NVMe over RDMA with latency that essentially matches that of locally attached PCIe SSDs. Mellanox’s well defined open APIs on top of industry standard Ethernet and InfiniBand fabrics, have been key to success and will allow our solutions to scale to very large deployments." said Paul Prince, Chief Technology Officer of Mangstor.

“Mangstor has leveraged its expertise with flash controller technology and networking software to create impressive new storage solutions using our ConnectX-3 Pro network adapters,” said Kevin Deierling, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies.” Customers all over the world want the flexibility to access and share NVMe storage. The Mangstor solution uses the power of our Ethernet adapters, switches, and RDMA technology to optimize the path from servers to NVMe storage.”

Mangstor's NVMe appliance represents a major step forward in the evolution of server attached storage to Server-SANs. This all Flash solution transparently extends the performance and latency benefits of direct server-attached PCI Express based solid-state drives, to a top-of-rack storage array where clustered servers access the shared storage via NVMe over RoCE or InifiniBand networks using Mellanox’s line of ConnectX® 40 / 56 Gigabit Ethernet adapters.

Mangstor is currently demonstrating the server-attached shared storage with Mellanox's ConnectX-3 Pro adapters using RDMA over Ethernet (RoCE) at the Ethernet Technology Summit 2015 in Santa Clara, April 14-16 in booth number #304.
