The Register: Flash array startup E8 whips out benchmarks, everyone will complain

Flash array startup E8 whips out benchmarks, everyone will complain

NVMe over Fabrics flash array startup E8 says its box out-performs Dell EMC and Pure arrays by up to 20 times.

E8 is now selling and shipping a 2U by 24 NVMe SSD and NVMe over Fabrics-accessed array, with dual controllers and some logic agents in the accessing servers. It provides a claimed 10 million IOPS with 100 microsecond latency. The array is actually just a bunch of flash drives and uses dual-port 6.4TB NVMe SSDs, the first such array in the storage business.
