10 Coolest Flash Storage and SSD Technologies of 2019 So Far
Lightbits Labs in April introduced SuperSSD, calling it the industry’s first scalable, Ethernet-attached SSD offering targeting the storage performance, capacity and reliability requirements for artificial intelligence and machine-learning training systems. SuperSSD was purpose-built for fast and massive parallel access to data. The technology virtualizes and manages a large pool of NVMe SSDs with a global flash translation layer (GFTL) for efficient storage utilization and wire-speed access to very large data sets across existing network and compute infrastructures.
Network Growth And Enterprise Storage
This blog presents survey results indicating telco perceptions of the growth and use of 5G networks and particularly the growth of edge computing. We also talk about some recently announced solutions for enterprise storage, including the Seagate Exos platform and its integration with Cloudian Software. We also talk about Lightbits and NVMe over TCP and new SSDs from Toshiba that have been certified with Excelero’s NVMesh software defined block storage.
Lightbits Labs soups up NVMe fabric with all-flash SuperSSD
One month after launching its disaggregated NVMe storage software, Lightbits Labs is jumping into the hardware game. The startup this week introduced SuperSSD, an NVMe-oF all-flash array targeted at AI and cloud applications. The 2U form factor hosts the Lightbits LightOS operating system and 24 NVMe SSDs.
