VentureBeat: Lightbits Labs raises $50 million for software-defined 'disaggregated' server technology

Lightbits Labs raises $50 million for software-defined 'disaggregated' server technology

Datacenters with servers directly attached to solid-state drives (SSDs) often suffer from an imbalance of storage and compute: Either there’s not enough processing power to go around, or physical storage limits get in the way of daily data transfer operations. Four-year-old startup Lightbits Labs claims it has the solution to the perennial underutilization problem, and it’s raising money to prove out its approach. The company today announced that it has raised $50 million in funding led by strategic partners Dell EMC, Cisco, Micron, SquarePeg Capital.

TheNextPlatform: NVM-Express Storage Goes Mainstream Over Ethernet Fabrics

NVM-Express Storage Goes Mainstream Over Ethernet Fabrics

Among the emerging themes for 2019 in the datacenter, one of them is that NVM-Express is finding its place in the storage hierarchy. NVM-Express started out as an important interconnect inside of storage systems, but its extension across network fabrics is very likely going to have a more transformative effect on datacenters as it allows for storage to be disaggregated from compute, enabling the kind of disaggregation and composability that, thus far, only the biggest cloud builders and hyperscalers could afford to create for yourself.
