Aupera Technologies Reveals Next-Gen NVMeoF JBOF Prototype Achieving 16M IOPS

August 07, 2018 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aupera Technologies today announced an ASIC based 25G/100G Ethernet NVMeoF JBOF[3] Prototype System, which utilizes a hardware NVMeoF bridge and 25G/100G Ethernet switch fabrics, achieving native NVMe (PCIe3.0) SSD performance. Designed for scale-out, the new JBOF system significantly simplifies the deployment of high-performance storage systems in data centers.

This JBOF system is a standard 19-inch 2U chassis and supports up to 24 NVMe-oF SSD modules. The NVMe-oF SSD module adopted the interposer solution, jointly developed by Aupera and Toshiba Memory Corporation. The interposer is based on the Marvell® 88SN2400 NVMe-oF SSD converter controller, enabling dual 25Gbit RDMA network ports and NVMe-oF bridging. The built-in dual-star switch matrix provides dual 6 x 100G uplink ports and dual 24 x 25G downlink ports to SSDs for non-blocking access. The prototype system achieves 16 million IOPS[3] (4KB random read), while maintaining extremely low power consumption. The JBOF chassis has also integrated the BMC system for chassis configuration, health monitoring and remote management, which is ready for carrier grade deployment.

“With this whole new system architecture, combined with Aupera’s existing high density FPGA-based video processing solutions, we have achieved another mile-stone step towards building a next-generation video data center platform. It has been a great pleasure to work with Toshiba and Marvell on the most advanced technologies in the industry. We are very excited about the system performance achieved so far,” said Aupera CEO, Roy Liao.

NVMe over Fabrics is expected to be widely adopted in the cloud data center and enterprise markets. Toshiba Memory’s near-native performance of NVMe SSDs, combined with Aupera’s NVMeoF JBOF system, will ensure SSDs peak performance, simplify deployment, and facilitate large-scale adoption in the data center.

Aupera Technologies and Toshiba Memory will demonstrate this new JBOF prototype system at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California from August 7 – 9 in booth #951(Aupera) and #307(Toshiba).
