Highest Distributed NVMe Performance
Excelero’s Software-Defined Storage NVMesh enables customers to design Server SAN infrastructures for the most demanding enterprise and cloud-scale applications, leveraging standard servers and multiple tiers of flash. The primary benefit of NVMesh is that it enables true converged infrastructures by logically disaggregating storage from compute.
A web-based GUI provides intuitive management, configuration and monitoring functionality.
The NVMesh Target Module identifies storage hardware, such as NVMe drives and compatible NICs, and sets up RDDA pathways into the NVMe drives on behalf of the storage clients.
The Intelligent Client Block Driver implements block device functionality for storage clients/consumers.
The patented Remote Direct Drive Access (RDDA) functionality bypasses the CPU and, as a result, avoids the noisy neighbors effect for the application.
The shift of data services from centralized CPU to complete client side distribution enables linear scalability, provides deterministic performance for applications
NVMesh – Software-Defined Block Storage
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. In short, applications can enjoy the latency, throughput and IOPs of a local NVMe device while at the same time getting the benefits of centralized, redundant storage.
Leverage standard servers and multiple tiers of flash
Unmodified applications utilize pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds and latencies.
Underlying storage can be presented as block volumes or through integrated file systems.
NVMesh abstracts distributed NVMe storage resources and creates a single pool of high-performance storage.
RDDA – Patented Remote Direct Drive Access
RDDA bypasses the target CPU
A key component of Excelero’s NVMesh is the patented Remote Direct Drive Access (RDDA) functionality, which bypasses the CPU and, as a result, avoids the noisy neighbors effect for the application. The shift of data services from centralized CPU to complete client side distribution enables linear scalability, provides deterministic performance for applications and enables customers to maximize the utilization of their flash drives.
Supports Converged and Disaggregated Architectures
NVMesh is deployed as a virtual, distributed non-volatile array and supports both converged and disaggregated architectures, giving customers full freedom in their architectural design.
Local Storage in Application Server
Storage is Centralized
Intuitive Management Interface
Maximizing operational efficiency, requires consolidation of storage silos and the ability to run multiple applications on a single storage platform. NVMesh was designed to leverage any underlying storage medium so applications can be provisioned with volumes that meet all application requirements (scale, performance, availability, reliability, efficiency and cost) and guarantee internal or external SLA’s. This can be done from a central interface (or API) that is very transparent and easy to use.
