Pooling NVMe enables new Science use cases at NASA

“By reducing random access latency to large data sets, humans can interact with the computing environment in a more natural fashion”

Use Case

  • Large-scale modeling, simulation, analysis and visualization
  • Visualizes supercomputer simulation data on 128 monitors from a 128 node cluster

Problem

  • Interactive work is generally small IOs
  • Introduction of high-performance local NVMe SSDs create the problem of data locality

Solution

NVMesh by Excelero enables NASA to create a petabyte-scale unified pool of high-performance flash distributed retaining the speeds and latencies of directly-attached media.

Reducing NVMe TCO for Predix Cloud with 70%

“Excelero has created a unique software-only architecture that allows the industry to use NVMe to the full potential, at cloud scale.”
—Darren Haas, head of cloud engineering at GE

Use Case

  • Industrial Internet of Things with cloud servers
  • Digital Twin: simulation of real-world machinery

Problem

  • Build a scalable, high-performance storage tier, adaptable to different workloads
  • Optimize utilization of NVMe drives from 25% to 85%

Solution

Excelero NVMesh gives applications access to NVMe SSDs across the network at local speeds, enabling maximum capacity & performance utilization.
