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."

Viking and Enmotus will be demonstrating the FuzeDrive™solution on a Supermicro  X9DRH-iF-NV system at Booth 510 of the Flash Memory Summit, this week in Santa Clara, CA.Sales information is available at: www.vikingtechnology.com, via email at [email protected] or by calling (949) 643-7255.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
