OCP Tech Week: Inspur and Samsung Electronics Unveil Open All-Flash Storage Resource Pooling Solution

1U, with up to 256TB flash memory

Inspur Electronic Information Industry Co.,Ltd and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced a jointly-developed 1U server-based open all-flash storage resource pooling solution at OCP Tech Week.

It uses the Ruler SSD, based on the EDSFF standard (enterprise and data center storage) and can achieve a flash memory capacity of up to 256TB in 1U, supporting remote sharing of flash storage resources through NVMe-oF technology. It is also suitable for local large-capacity and high-performance storage solutions.

With the growing application of 5G and AI in various industries, enterprise business development is facing an increasingly complex market environment. More data is generated and the requirements for data collection and processing speed are becoming steeper. As server functions and processor performance continue to improve, market demand for high-performance and large-capacity storage solutions grows.

In early 2018, Intel teamed up with Facebook, Samsung and other to launch the SSD standard EDSFF. This introduction has brought high-performance storage to the forefront of server development. With high-density, large-capacity, high-performance, and cooling-optimized solutions, it became popular among industry partners.

The open all-flash storage solution jointly developed by the 2 companies uses the EDSFF 1U Short, referred to as E1.S, designed for high-density, high-performance servers and data centers. It can accommodate 2 rows of flash dies to support larger capacity, while supporting hot plug function, lower power consumption and heat dissipation requirements.

Additionally, the product can dynamically enable all-flash storage resource pooling through NVMe-oF while providing optimal local high-performance storage. It improves overall IO performance by nearly 2.6x while reducing latency by 52%, making it for databases, analytics, security applications (such as facial recognition), and transaction processing.

As a server manufacturer involved in all three major open computing organizations, OCP, ODCC, and Open19, the company is committed to promoting the establishment of standards and taking the lead in advancing the commercialization of open technology standards. With the release of the open all-flash storage solution, the two partners plans to share the product architecture in the open computing community as an open source reference for more manufacturers in the future.
