The U.2 NoLoad™: Computational Storage without the Storage?

In this blog we are very pleased to announce, the U.2 version of our NoLoad™ NVM Express (NVMe) computational storage and offload engine. Working with our friends at Nallatech we have developed a ground-up solution for NVMe based offload for storage and analytics in a form-factor that is ideal for next-generation, NVMe based, storage and compute systems. We are very happy to have Allan Cantle (CTO and Founder at Nallatech, a Molex company) act as a co-author on today’s blog. Nallatech are our hardware partner in the development of the U.2 NoLoad™.

NVM Express over PCIe Gen4 Baby!

I mentioned in my last blog that NVM Express (NVMe) is fast. Today it got even faster as we demonstrate, what we believe, is the first public domain demo of NVMe running over PCIe Gen4. This doubles the throughput of NVMe and allows systems built around NVMe to achieve performance levels that have been unobtainable before now.

Avoiding the NVM Express bottleneck with NVMe CMBs, Eideticom and SPDK

On February 14th Eideticom pushed some code into upstream Storage Performance Developers Kit (www.spdk.io and https://github.com/spdk/spdk) that enables new and interesting capabilities related to NVM Express (NVMe) SSDs with Controller Memory Buffers (CMBs). In this article I take a closer look at why we did that and why it’s good for the producers and users of NVMe devices.

Eideticom Demonstrates Industry’s First NVMe over RDMA and TCP/IP using Broadcom’s NetXtreme Ethernet SoC: The Backstory

I’m very excited to share some details about work we at Eideticom recently did with Broadcom, one of our NIC partners, which led to our latest news release. Here is the backstory on why NoLoad™ FPGA compute disaggregation running via Broadcom’s NeXtreme SOC as described in the press release is groundbreaking.
