Simplifying Composable Infrastructure with NVMe Hardware Virtualization

  Today, Mellanox introduced NVMe SNAP technology enabling hardware virtualization of NVMe Flash storage, to achieve all the efficiency and management benefits of remote storage, with the simplicity of local storage. At the 2009 World Swimming Championships in Rome, controversial new full-body swimsuits came to prominence and gave the top swimmers the edge they needed […]

Achieving a Cloud Scale Architecture with DPU based SmartNICs

In the first blog of this series, I argued that it is function and not form that define a DPU (Data Processing Unit) based SmartNIC . I also introduce another category of data center NICs called an intelligent NIC (iNIC) which include both hardware transport and a programmable data path for virtual switch acceleration. These […]

Excelero Unites NVMe Over Fabrics With Hyper-Converged Infrastructure

Two Hot IT Topics Standing Alone, Until Now… Two of the hottest topics and IT trends right now are hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and NVMe Over Fabrics (NVMe-oF).  The hotness of HCI is evident in the IPO of Nutanix in September and HPE’s acquisition of Simplivity in January 2017. The interest in NVMe-oF has been astounding […]

Storage Predictions for 2017

Looking at what’s to come for storage in 2017, I find three simple and easy predictions which lead to three more complex predictions.  Let’s start with the easy ones: Flash keeps taking over NVMe over Fabrics remains the hottest storage technology Cloud continues to eat the world of IT   Flash keeps taking over Every […]
