E8 Storage uses Mellanox’s Ethernet Storage Fabric in Record Breaking Benchmark!

The following is a guest blog by E8 Storage. There’s nothing like an established, peer reviewed benchmark such as SPEC SFS®2014 to prove what you’ve been saying all along: E8 Storage delivers high performance and low latency at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. This means that data-intensive applications can rely on E8 […]

Ethernet Storage Fabric – Part 2

An Ethernet Storage Fabric, or ESF in short, is the fastest and most efficient way to network storage. It leverages the speed, flexibility, and cost efficiencies of Ethernet with the best switching hardware and software packaged in ideal form factors to provide performance, scalability, intelligence, high availability, and simplified management for scale-out storage and hyperconverged […]

Ethernet Storage Fabric – Part 1

The volume of data, in both structured and unstructured forms, is growing rapidly in datacenters. Applications that generate or consume this data are being developed and deployed across geographic regions. All these are calling for a storage infrastructure that is fast to expand with rapid data growth, agile to accommodate application performance requirements and virtualized […]
