Xinnor and Atto Technology, Inc. have joined forces to provide a solution for designing a scalable high-performance storage solution that considers data integrity, flexibility in system design, and management of storage resources.
The combination of these 2 technologies provides an effective, reliable and secure way to deploy NVMe SSD while assuring data integrity.
xiRAID is a software RAID solution designed for NVMe performance. It provides flexibility while keeping host resource utilization to a minimum. ExpressNVM NVMe Smart Switch host adapters are a storage connectivity solution that adds scalability and flexibility to dense NVMe storage ecosystems. It comes with a host of management tools and administrative features that allow data centers and hyperscalers to design smart and flexible enterprise-grade systems while retaining the performance of NVMe SSDs.
The solution was tested on a Dell PowerEdge server, where 8 NVMe SSDs were installed via PCIe Gen4 using the ExpressNVM adapter and sequential I/O was run across the RAID group. When using xiRAID in RAID-5 we were able to achieve 27.5GB/s in reads and 9GB/s in write.
“The combination of xiRAID and Atto ExpressNVM NVMe Smart Switch host adapters is a powerful, yet highly flexible solution that provides affordability, efficient data protection, and drive management for NVMe for mission-critical applications,” said Davide Villa, CRO, Xinnor.
“This is the RAID solution data center managers have been waiting for,” said Tim Klein, president and CEO, Atto. “Software RAID-5 on NVMe storage that’s operating at or near full speed is truly next level in terms of performance and value.“
Xinnor is going to present xiRAID at upcoming NAB Show which is set to take place from April 15-19, 2023, in Las Vegas, NV.
