Boston Ltd Debuts NVMe-based Boston Flash-IO Talyn Server at GTC Europe

NVMesh is a software-defined block storage solution that features Elastic NVMe


Boston Ltd will be showcasing the new Boston Flash-IO Talyn Server in a NVMe over Fabrics and GPU rendering demonstration at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) Europe, Munich, 2017.

Bringing together the latest technology from Mellanox, Micron and Supermicro, Boston has partnered with Excelero to provide a scalable NVMe over Fabrics storage solution using Excelero’s award-winning NVMesh server SAN software and adds another piece to our vision of the Software Defined Datacenter.

The solution solves one of the biggest challenges in computing today - shared access to NVMe flash storage volumes at the low latency and high-performance required by GPU-based applications, yet with minimum processor overhead. Employing Excelero’s server SAN along with other leading technologies such as RoCE v2 and 100Gbit/s EDR InfiniBand or 100GbE from Mellanox’s Connect-X 5 range, processor overhead and latency is kept low, whilst bandwidth is plentiful.

Named Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology at the Flash Memory Summit in August, NVMesh is a Software-Defined Block Storage solution that features Elastic NVMe, a distributed block layer that allows unmodified applications to utilise pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds and latencies.

Distributed NVMe storage resources are pooled with the ability to create arbitrary, dynamic block volumes that can be utilised by any host running the NVMesh block client. These virtual volumes can be striped, mirrored or both while enjoying centralised management, monitoring and administration
