NVMesh server SAN architecture offers 100% software-only shared NVMe at microsecond latencies
London, UK – 24 th November 2017: Excelero, a disruptor in software-defined block storage, announced that last night it won the ‘Storage Innovation of the Year’ category award for its NVMesh® server SAN at the SVC awards ceremony in London. The result of one patented and nine patent-pending technologies, NVMesh allows enterprise applications to enjoy the low latency, high throughput and high IOPs of a local NVMe device while benefiting from centralised, redundant storage.
Excelero attended the awards with partners ArcaStream, Boston Limited and Pixit Media, with whom the company is enabling enterprises across many different verticals, from broadcast and media to high-performance computing and surveillance, to build hyperscale data centre architectures with ease. NVMesh does this by delivering shared NVMe at local latency and performance, maximising utilisation and ROI. The only NVMe sharing solution that is a 100% software implementation, Excelero’s NVMesh allows customers to build highly scalable high-performance block storage SAN with standard hardware.
“Excelero’s innovative approach really stands head and shoulders above alternative technologies so it’s not surprising it won this category,” said Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Limited. “When it came to choosing a partner for the Boston Flash-IO Talyn, our NVMe over fabric solution, Excelero’s extreme performance, cutting edge NVMe over fabrics technologies, and scale out capabilities were impossible to ignore. Together we are addressing the pressure placed on storage architectures by data-heavy applications across a range of verticals such as HPC, rendering, M&E, deep learning and AI – to name a few.”
Ben Leaver, CEO and Co-Founder, Pixit Media and ArcaStream, said, “By reliably delivering shared NVMe-based storage directly to demanding applications using commodity components, Excelero is a revolutionary technology and fits perfectly with our storage solutions for high performance computing and media and entertainment use cases.”
Axel Rosenberg, Senior Director Technical Services, Excelero, commented: “After having been recognised as a winner at the Flash Memory Summit we are very proud to receive this award once again in recognition of our innovation. Our unique, proven technology, and our solid partnerships such as those with Boston and Pixit, stands us in great stead as we head into 2018.”
Excelero enables enterprises and service providers to design scale-out storage infrastructures leveraging standard servers and high-performance flash storage. Founded in 2014 by a team of storage veterans and inspired by the tech giants’ shared-nothing architectures for web-scale applications, the company has designed a software-defined block storage solution that meets performance and scalability requirements of the largest web-scale and enterprise applications.
With Excelero’s NVMesh, customers can build distributed, high-performance server SAN for mixed application workloads. Customers benefit from the performance of local flash, with the convenience of centralized storage while avoiding proprietary hardware lock-in and reducing the overall storage.
