Micron on Wednesday announced the SolidScale storage platform, which uses NVMe over Fabric for low-latency, high-performance shared storage.

 

Designed for data-intensive workloads and cloud-native applications, SolidScale is an integrated architecture that allows capacity to be shared across application servers and couples flash storage with PCI NVMe. The SolidScale platform connects multiple nodes using RDMA over Converged Ethernet (R0CE) to deliver a converged infrastructure solution that performs like local direct-attached storage.

Initially designed for Linus environments, SolidScale provides block storage capability and is provided in a 2U node configuration in a 24U rack enclosure.

SolidScale allows the creation and management of a single pool of storage through a logical volume feature.

Nodes are connected with a Mellanox fabric that allows an end to end latency reduction of under 200 microseconds.

Why Should You Care: Micron is taking an early mover position by deploying NVMe over Fabric to connecting to the CPU to provide a low-latency fabric for data analytics, high-performance computing and hyperscale databases.
