Viking Technology & Enmotus Announce Partnership in Developing Next Generation Hybridization Software with NVDIMM Technology

Viking and Enmotus will be demonstrating the FuzeDrive™solution on a Supermicro X9DRH-iF-NV system at the Flash Memory Summit, Santa Clara, CA.

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Viking Technology, a division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), and leading global manufacturer of NVDIMM, SSD and DRAM solutions, today announced a partnership with Enmotus, a software defined storage hybridization company, to develop next generation hybrid storage software that leverages emerging NVDIMM technology. This collaboration between Viking Technology and Enmotus' device hybridization architecture provides a solution enabling enterprise IT, hyperscale datacenters, OEMs and system integrators to take advantage of virtualization and real-time tiering, using NVDIMM as the fastest tier.

"With our FuzeDrive™ hybrid storage software and Viking Technology's NVDIMM (Arxcis-NV), we will be able to deliver a complete solution that can easily integrate with and greatly optimize application workloads with even greater cost efficiency," said Andy Mills, CEO and Co-Founder at Enmotus. "We designed our software to use intelligent real time MicroTiering™ and virtualization technology, and combined with NVDIMM technology, we will be able to push the performance limits of those techniques. We are only beginning to explore the possibilities of utilizing NVDIMM as a storage device in FuzeDrive™: it's exciting to see how these storage innovations will define enterprise storage for the next generation of datacenters, servers and storage appliances."

With latency a thousand times less than flash, NVDIMM hybrid solutions are targeted for the most performance sensitive applications such as analytic databases and financial transactions, especially in quantitative analysis.  The Enmotus hybridization technology provides data center managers with high performance, virtualization, automated device management and data tiering capability for Windows and Linux that can support a variety of block level storage devices including PCIe SSDs, SAS/SATA SSDs, RAID adapters and regular hard drives. As a result of the collaboration with Viking, the Enmotus software will provide an easy and transparent way to virtualize NVDIMMs and pool with other storage media, making it extremely easy to integrate with existing applications and mainstream operating systems.

"We are excited to partner with Enmotus to deliver hybridization software utilizing our NVDIMM technology," said Hamid Shokrgozar, President of Viking Technology. "This collaboration will provide an important step toward memory class storage virtualization. The technology partnership will also offer both block and memory class access in a standard and uniform way; paving the way for innovative approaches in NVDIMM deployments in the enterprise storage market and hyper-scale datacenters. Our goal is to achieve the most cost effective enterprise storage solution for our customers without compromising performance."

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
