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.
Big Twin Details
The Supermicro BigTwin is the first and only 2U multi-node system supporting the highest performance processor, memory, storage, I/O and an incredible 30% better thermal capacity, leveraging the Titanium Level 96% efficient PowerStick power supplies (2200W/2600W). The 5th generation of Supermicro’s Twin architecture is fully optimized for today’s diverse workloads and architected for further technology breakthroughs.
The system delivers the highest performance and efficiency in a 2U 4-node platform. It supports the widest TDP range of CPUs (up to 205W), fully exploits all memory channels with 24 DIMMS per node and 24 All-Flash NVMe drives. Finally, the SuperMicro BigTwin provides
100% more I/O capacity and added flexibility with more than10 networking options including 1GbE, 10G, 25G, 100G, IB and industry-leading SIOM modular interconnect.
