Viking Enterprise Solutions and Kalray Announce the Co-development of FLASHBOX NVMe Storage Arrays
July 23, 2021
Powered by Kalray’s Smart Storage Acceleration Card based on its MPPA DPU (Data Processing Unit), the NVME disaggregated storage solution from Viking Enterprise Solutions and Kalray is designed to address NVMe performance bottlenecks, while providing “plug and play” use for standard enterprise-grade storage appliances.
The FLASHBOX solution will be based on the VDS2249R system, an enterprise class storage using NVMe over fabrics technology from Viking Enterprise Solutions, and Kalray’s smart storage acceleration card that leverages Kalray’s MPPA DPU processor.
Key target markets for the NVME disaggregated storage solution include the AI, high performance computing, life sciences, and financial industries that utilize data intensive applications and require low latency, high performance storage.
As previously mentioned, FLASHBOX will be based on Kalray’s MPPA DPU, a new generation of fully programmable data-centric processors. Whereas most advanced All-Flash Array solutions currently use multiple adapter cards with CPUs (x86) that run storage services, Kalray manages to run all of the critical functions of a disaggregated storage appliance on a single chip.
The new storage array will be unveiled at a digital event in late September.
