Flash Innovations Provide Security, Performance, Density and Capacity Required by Evolving Data Center Landscapes
LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 3, 2018 — This week at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2018, Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, will be on hand to showcase its series of flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) and software geared toward multiple data center workload profiles.
As data centers evolve to support more digitally focused strategies, traditional storage systems begin to fall short – leading to a shift in the infrastructure landscape. Gartner predicts that 50 percent of data centers will use solid state arrays for high-performance computing and big data workloads by 2021 – up from approximately 10 percent today1. At the upcoming Gartner conference, TMA is highlighting the crucial role its solutions play in the storage systems that will enable the digital transformation of these data centers.
Demonstrations are located in Toshiba Memory America’s booth #140 on the Venetian show floor from December 3 – 5, and include:
KumoScale™ software – Enabling the use of NVMe-oF™ to make flash storage accessible over a data center network, KumoScale provides a simple, flexible abstraction of physical disks into a pool of block storage, all while preserving the high performance of direct-attached NVMe™ SSDs.
NVMe and SATA SSDs – Powered by BiCS FLASH™ 3D flash memory, TMA’s lineup of data center SSDs is available in multiple easy to deploy form factors. The CD5, XD5 and HK6-DC SSDs enable infrastructure managers to address performance and workload demands by offering robust performance and reliability with low operating power for read-intensive applications such as NoSQL databases, big data analytics and streaming media.
RM5 12Gbit/s value SAS (vSAS) series – A new category of SAS SSDs, the RM5 Series makes enterprise-class capacity, performance, reliability, manageability, and data security more accessible to current SATA users. Designed with affordability and server applications in mind, TMA’s RM5 vSAS series seeks to provide a cost-effective and high-performing solution to overcome the bottlenecks that are inherent with SATA today.
“Today’s data centers are being barraged with challenges imposed by heavy workloads, more sophisticated demands, and security concerns – among others,” noted Alex Mei, vice president of corporate marketing at Toshiba Memory America, Inc. “Our high-reliability, low-power data center storage solutions address these issues, offering a combination of security, performance, density, and capacity that is tailor-made to give businesses the scale they need to handle the workloads of tomorrow.”
