I recently spoke at the NVMe Members forum on a topic near and dear to my heart. The topic was “Enabling the NVMe CMB and PMR Ecosystem” and was given with Oren Duer, Director of Storage Software at Mellanox.  You can click on the links to the presentation and even better a link to a video recorded at the event.

We take verification of our IP very seriously at Eideticom. While running test-benches against our new compression RTL core for our NoLoad NVMe accelerator we hit a bug. Turns out the bug was actually in the software version of zlib, a software library used for data compression and had lain in the code for 13 years. We reported the bug to Mark Adler and he pushed a fix to GitHub! Nice work Danilo Ramos, MSc, P.Eng and the others on the Eideticom team for tracking this down.

Here is the link to Mark’s zlib update on github:

If you are interested in deploying offloaded compression in your NVM Express based systems give me a shout because the Eideticom NoLoad could be perfect for you!

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™.
