Western Digital introduces new solutions that provide the foundation and foundations for the next generation of data infrastructure. The solutions are designed around Ultrastar NVMe SSD storage systems and are further accelerated with NVMe-oF. The company’s innovation and integration capabilities, from NAND Flash memory components to storage platforms, enable Ultrastar DC SN840 dual-port NVMe SSDs and RapidFlex NVMe-oF controllers as stand-alone solutions that can be combined To create a new storage platform – OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform. The new solution combines JBOF (Just a Bunch (of Flash) wide-scale flash storage while expanding the value offered by NVMe enabling a large number of servers over a low-latency Ethernet network). Western Digital products designed for data processing centers,
In the current global economy, every microsecond is important and determinative. Large-scale enterprise cloud data centers are constantly working to eliminate bottlenecks, enabling uncompromising performance and essential application availability – while also meeting unprecedented growth in data volumes. All these are leading more and more customers to adopt NVMe and NVMe-oF solutions at an accelerated pace. IDC market analysis company expects organizations operating hyper-systems, OEMs and end-user organizations to continue the transition from traditional SATA and SAS interfaces – while NVMe interfaces are in a growth path that will lead them to reach more than 55% of all SSDs delivered to organizations this year . The average annual growth rate in use of NVMe interfaces in 2018-2023 is expected to be 38%.
According to IDC Vice President Jeff Janukowicz, “Flash’s future is undoubtedly NVMe: it’s all about speed, efficiency, capacity, and expansion in a competitive cost structure. NVMe-oF takes all of that to the next level Many high-performing applications have quickly become the backbone of business key functions, and we can expect this process to further expand NVMe’s use of global enterprise data processing centers. Western Digital’s long history of innovation in NAND Flash, And the integrated product portfolio of NVMe SSDs drives and new solutions for total data sets
The company is in a good position that allows it to help customers fully embrace NVMe’s environment and make the most of their storage assets. “
Ultrastar DC SN840 Data Center NVMe SSD
The high-performance drive Ultrastar DC SN840 Gen3.1 NVMe SSD underpins Western Digital’s leading position in dual-port architecture, introducing the third generation of company-made solutions in this category – which includes the first NVMe integrated motherboard controller, Dedicated software embedded in hardware and 3D TLC NAND 3D technology, the new Ultrastar NVMe SSD allows enterprise customers to seamlessly transition from the SATA and SAS environments to the NVMe environment, delivering competitive performance of up to 780K / 250K in read / write output operations per second (IOPS), and a total storage capacity of 15.36TB in U.2 15mm enclosure. Its comprehensive collection of capabilities for work in an enterprise environment includes DW / D levels 1 and 3 compliance, complete fallout protection, and TCG encryption. The drive is an ideal solution for a growing number of critical applications that require high read-through performance and mixed load work, low latency and dual port availability.It is designed for environments such as high-performance computing (HPC), cloud, SQL / NoSQL database, virtualization (virtual machines or software containers), artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as data analytics.
According to Paul Bloch, DDN president and co-founder, “As a leader in high performance storage, artificial intelligence and big data, DDN is required to be at the forefront of storage technologies. Fortunately, we have an innovative partner in Western Digital, which provides NVMe-based flash solutions “Enabling maximum performance from the systems so we can offer our customers significant acceleration in performance. We look forward to implementing Ultrastar DC SN840 NVMe SSD systems within our solutions.”
