ISC High Performance Conference: Xinnor Showcasing xiRAID and xiSCALE Software RAID Solutions

Lightweight software module that requires 2% of CPU load and almost no RAM for checksum calculations, for parallel file systems like Lustre and BeeGFS

Xinnor will showcase its software RAID solutions at the ISC High Performance Conference 2023 in Hamburg, Germany, from May 22 to May 24.

The company will demonstrate xiRAID, a software RAID engine designed for NVMe SSD, and xiSCALE, a declustered RAID solution for massive capacity drives (HDD and SSD).

XiRAID is an only software solution designed to work effectively with local and networked NVMe devices. With high I/O handling parallelization and a lockless datapath, xiRAID arrays perform very close to the raw drive capabilities, exceeding the performance of the latest hardware RAID solutions. Additionally, unlike traditional software RAID implementations, xiRAID is a lightweight software module that requires just 2% of CPU load and almost no RAM for checksum calculations, which makes it for parallel file systems like Lustre and BeeGFS.

XiSCALE is a declustered RAID engine that aims to solve the long drive rebuild time, typical of mass capacity HDD/SSD. Thanks to its pre-defined matrices of data, checksums, and spare block placements, xiSCALE reduces drive rebuild time from days to hours.

The company will also present a ready-to-deploy performance BeeGFS reference architecture on NVMe-oF storage platform. The combination of BeeGFS parallel file system with xiRAID deployed on the platform addresses the need of IT and HPC with high performance, easy-to-manage, and fully supported solution. Internal testing showed a 42GB/s for reads and 24GB/s for writes with a single platform and cost-optimized RAID-5/6 implementation. Additionally, the solution provides the benefit of an open composable infrastructure environment.
