Supermicro NVMesh Storage Solutions

Low-latency distributed block storage for web-scale data centers

Solution Overview

New application workloads are driving the need for new storage architectures: Cloud, Edge, AI and IoT bring new latency requirements – therefore companies need to rethink their storage strategies. 

Supermicro and Excelero have joined forces to deliver a high-performance, low-latency distributed block storage solution leveraging NVMe flash. The Supermicro NVMesh solution enables unmodified applications to utilize pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds and latencies. It was designed to combine virtually unlimited Supermicro servers with NVMe to scale capacity and performance.

Product Brief

The Supermicro NVMesh Reference Architecture implements the next-generation of intelligent infrastructure platforms designed to provide applications with all of the raw performance you can expect from local storage — and all of the flexibility, manageability and scalability typically experienced with traditional storage area network-based solutions. Leveraging the latest NVMe and PCIe standards, this reference architecture uses a low-latency, high-bandwidth networking to connect compute and storage together in a flexible way that will fit almost any application’s architecture requirements. Deploy this RA in storage-centric, compute-centric or mixed storage and compute configurations, and integrate it with existing data center application servers as desired.

Supermicro NF1 Server

Supermicro in collaboration with Samsung has developed an extremely dense, very high capacity, all-flash storage server platform poised to revolutionize the industry with its price/performance and design efficiency. Using only one rack unit, it can house up to 576 TB of storage. The Samsung NF1 form factor was specifically designed to maximize performance and capacity for data intensive/low latency workloads. As a leader in Flash technology Samsung has created the NF1 form factor that has disrupted the storage industry with its reduced consumption of space and power.

The NF1 server starts with a no compromise motherboard featuring dual Intel™ Xeon™ Scalable processors up to 205W, which provide up to 56 cores, and 24 DIMMs for 3 TB of system memory. To achieve commercial success in both these application areas, the All-Flash platform must provide the lowest TCO, changing the decision from performance-at-all-cost, to a balance of price/performance and efficiency. The NF1 server strikes this balance perfectly.
