If you haven’t
yet heard about our new NVMe product line, allow us to introduce you to the newATTO ExpressNVM™ Smart NVMe Switch Host
A new product
family built on the NVMe interface specification, ATTO ExpressNVM Smart Switch
Host Adapters allow organizations to quickly and easily scale NVMe storage
capacity while supporting cutting-edge, high-performance serve applications.
They are a
value-add, cost-effective solution for OEMs and System Builders, providing an
unparalleled framework to develop enterprise NVMe storage arrays for local and
distributed storage networks.
capabilities of NVMe have made it a cornerstone of performance-hungry
applications such as real-time financial transactions and machine learning. We
recognized that enterprise architects and IT managers need more flexibility,
scalability and control for NVMe storage and that is exactly what our new NVMe
adapters bring to the table.
NMVe Scalability and Management
organizations modernize their data centers, NVMe storage has become the next
step in enterprise architectures. Yet despite its performance potential, many
organizations struggle with manageability when NVMe is scaled. NVMe was
designed to work over a PCIe bus where the synchronizations and command translation
requirements defeat the benefits of NVMe devices when accessed remotely. While
NVMe connectivity is available on the motherboard for many servers, the lack of
choices, customization, and the number of drives able to be connected limit
scalability and configuration options. These challenges are compounded with the
ongoing supply chain issues which are forcing server manufacturers to limit
SKUs and motherboard configurations.
Adapters provide greater purchasing and design flexibility options for OEMs and
System Integrators who choose to add these adapters to their storage solution
toolkits. In turn, their customers can add intelligence to their NVMe
deployments and restore key management and monitoring capabilities that are
lacking from most onboard solutions. Access to granular analytics and
integrated management features like those provided by ExpressNVM are
significant considerations when customers are deciding to purchase their next
generation of hardware.
consistent and persistent latency, the new ATTO ExpressNVM Smart NVMe Switch
Host PCIe 4.0 Adapters address scalability issues with the ability to connect
up to eight NVMe drives per card. They allow for scalable NVMe storage
solutions and feature extensive management and analytics unrivaled by any other
solution available today, including:
An FPGA management engine
that adds management capabilities based on proprietary ATTO
eCORE™ technology.Real-time alerts to manage
and monitor attached drives with in-band and out-of-band analytic tools that
provide a granularity not possible with other solutions.Enterprise-ready
management capabilities, including reliability statistics and capacity
utilization – all without adversely impacting performance or latency.
