The CM5 Series provides an added benefit to NVMesh users as it supports 4,104-byte sector formats (4,096 bytes + 8 bytes). Having the ability to utilize inline metadata with 4,104-byte blocks not only speeds up NVMesh dual parity protection processes but also enables the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) to be stored inline – enhancing data protection and integrity. The combination of the CM5 Series’ large capacity options (up to 15 terabytes1) and the inline metadata capability makes Excelero’s NVMesh software a very valuable solution for today’s data-intensive workloads.

“With dozens of patents assigned or in process, we are continually innovating our NVMesh software platform with high-performance NVMe storage – a commitment we share with SSD innovators, such as Toshiba Memory,” said Josh Goldenhar, vice president of product management at Excelero. “Working closely with TMA’s ecosystem team has helped us advance NVMesh innovation and development by having early access to Toshiba Memory’s SSDs, which in turn, enables us to provide our customers with exceptional storage efficiencies and performance.”

“Our CD5 and CM5 Series NVMe-based SSDs deliver exceptionally high performance and low latency, making them ideal for Excelero’s NVMesh software-defined block storage products – and well-positioned for future NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) opportunities,” said Tatsuya Tanaka, vice president of ecosystem and standards at Toshiba Memory America, Inc. “With CM5 Series support for 4,104-byte sector formats, Excelero informed us that its NVMesh software experienced a significant performance boost for 4K operations when the dual parity protection process was invoked2, while also delivering enhanced data protection and integrity.”

Toshiba Memory continues to lead the industry with flash innovations for the evolving data center and enterprise landscapes and is committed to developing long-term customer relationships. With significant investments in memory, SSD development and fab capacity, customers can depend on Toshiba Memory for leading-edge, flash-based storage technologies. The company will demonstrate its CD5 and CM5 Series SSDs in the Excelero exhibit (E1039) at the upcoming ISC High Performance show in Frankfurt, Germany, from June 16-20, 2019.
