Kalray Brings Multicore Processing to Storage

Media & Entertainment Technologies, August 2016 – At the Flash Memory Summit, Multi-core processor developer Kalray was showing their new application in the storage space. The new solution uses not only the majority of the CPU power for processing but, also allows for the implementation of storage interfaces, high speed NICs and crypto. The product features in path encryption and decryption, compression, acceleration and secure erasure on the storage path.

As the design can support an 80Gbps NIC, that is configured as two 40G paths, and create an level 3 hardware path between the NIC and the storage solution. This takes the data processing that can come from the main CPU, and have applications that may contain malware, and keep them out of the data path from storage to network, securing the data… read on.
