The Boston Flash-IO Talyn is a revolutionary leap forward in NVMe over Fabrics that solves one of the biggest challenges in computing today.

Utilizing Excelero’s NVMesh architecture, the Boston Flash-IO Talyn is able to extend the promise of SDS to low-latency workloads by leveraging server-side NVMe-based flash storage to deliver a scalable converged infrastructure for next level performance.

Excelero NVMesh architecture

Key Benefits:

  • Elastic NVMe over Fabrics Storage
  • Low latency access
  • RAID Support
  • 100% efficiency
  • Extends the promise of SDS to low-latency workloads
  • Multiple configurations and price-points

Powered by Excelero NVMesh

NVMesh is a Software-Defined Block Storage solution that features Elastic NVMe, a distributed block layer that allows unmodified applications to utilize pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds and latencies.

Distributed NVMe storage resources are pooled with the ability to create arbitrary, dynamic block volumes that can be utilized by any host running the NVMesh block client. These virtual volumes can be striped, mirrored or both while enjoying centralized management, monitoring and administration.
