Mangstor and EchoStreams Demonstrate 10GB/s High-Performance All-Flash SSD Shared Storage Array Targeting Video Applications

2015 NAB Show

LAS VEGAS--()--National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) - Mangstor, a leading developer of Intelligent Storage Solutions for Web-Scale and large enterprise data centers, today announced the company is working with EchoStreams to create the next generation of NVM Express™ shared storage solutions. The NMX-Series All-Flash-Array products built on Mangstor’s leading performance MX6300 SSDs, utilizing EchoStreams industry leading line of system platforms, provide over 10GB/s bandwidth with support for InfiniBand and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) at latencies comparable to local server based NVMe devices.

The Mangstor NMX Series appliances address the growing need of video editing and shared game development applications requiring the highest read/write bandwidth while maintaining low latency to shared flash storage in cluster server configurations. The solution uses Mellanox VPI adapters, supporting NVMe over Fabrics using either RoCE or InfiniBand to provide high throughput at the lowest latency. Mangstor’s optimized storage appliance provides a non-proprietary solution which outperforms traditional SAN-attached All-Flash and Hybrid Arrays, and enables customers to seamlessly evolve their traditional server attached storage to rapidly growing Server-SAN storage environments.

“EchoStreams’ high performance system solutions have helped us to create an ultra low-latency server-attached shared storage alternative to the other ‘all flash arrays’ available today, with much higher performance. We are demonstrating over 10GB/s of 4k random/reads, and 8GB/s of writes with remote access latencies that are lower than we’re seeing on other industry NVMe SSDs when connected locally in a server. By using industry standard Ethernet and Infiniband fabrics, with well defined open APIs, we’re able to deliver solutions that are ideal for video editing and content delivery, as well as other IO intensive shared storage enterprise applications,” said Trevor Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Mangstor.

“Mangstor has leveraged its expertise with flash controller technology and networking software to create impressive new storage solutions using our high performance platforms,” said Gene Lee, Chief Executive Officer of EchoStreams. “We are pleased to be working with Mangstor to develop industry leading network optimized solid state storage products. With the combination of Mellanox Technologies state-of-the art interconnect such as 56Gbps InfiniBand, we are able to extend this high bandwidth throughput and low latency performance from flash externally through the network. These platforms provide an ideal solution for customers looking for high performance shared storage, from video applications, to traditional enterprise applications and High Performance Computing."

“The advent of 4K video, 3D technology, and increasing use of computer-generated imagery (CGI) require faster storage, more bandwidth, and consistently low latency to deliver exciting movies to market quickly,” said Kevin Deierling, Vice President of Marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “We’re excited to work with Mangstor and EchoStreams to enable ultra-fast flash storage using NVMe Over Fabrics with Mellanox InfiniBand and Ethernet solutions.”

Mangstor's NVMe appliance represents a major step forward in the evolution of server attached storage to Server-SANs. This all Flash solution transparently extends the performance and latency benefits of direct server-attached PCI Express based solid-state drives, to a top-of-rack storage array where clustered servers access the shared storage via NVMe over RoCE or InfiniBand networks.

Mangstor and EchoStreams are currently demonstrating the server-attached shared storage using RDMA over Infiniband at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas, April 13-16 in the EchoStreams South Lower Hall booth, number SL15405.
