KALRAY MPPA® DPUs AT THE HEART OF THE STORAGE REVOLUTION
Storage arrays are fundamental building blocks in present-day data centers.
NVMe SSDs are mostly deployed as direct-attached or local storage (in-server), which does not scale and is highly inefficient. However, delivering high performance and a complete range of enterprise storage services utilizing NVMe requires a new generation of processors.
The Data Processing Unit—or DPU—is a new generation of programmable processors specifically designed to run data center infrastructure services.
Both Kalray's Flashbox™, the first disaggregated NVMe storage array that was designed from the ground up to leverage the full potential of NVMe flash devices at massive scale, and Kalray K200-LP™ Storage Acceleration Cards are powered with Kalray’s flagship data‐centric processor, the MPPA® DPU.
TWO BUSINESS MODELS
|Turnkey All-Flash-Array Appliance|
Kalray’s Flashbox™ is a ready-to-use storage appliance that can be plug & play in your existing infrastructure, the same as any other standard appliance.
It is developed in cooperation with Viking Enterprise Solutions, a division of Sanmina Corporation.
|Build your own All-Flash-Array Appliance|
Develop & customize your solution using Kalray K200-LP™ Storage Acceleration Card and AccessCore® Software Development Kit for a tailor-made solution.
Kalray’s K200-LP™ card is a game changer solution in terms of performance per Watt and per dollar.
OUR STORAGE SOLUTIONS OVERVIEW
UNLEASH THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR SSDs
The Kalray Flashbox™ is a NVMe All-Flash-Array that delivers speeds of up 12MIOPS with extremely low latency. Scaling from 2 to 6 Smart Storage Controllers and supporting up to 24 NVMe SSDs.
Flashbox™ is based on a modular SPDK-based architecture to run all critical storage services run on one single chip in the disaggregated storage appliance.
KALRAY K200-LP™ SMART STORAGE ADAPTER:
A FULLY PROGRAMMABLE CARD TO BUILD YOUR OWN HIGHER PERFORMANCE & FLEXIBLE AFA SOLUTIONS
Kalray’s K200‐LP™ acceleration card is a low‐profile, 2x 100Gb/s Ethernet, PCIe Gen4 card that can deliver more than 2 MIOPS supporting NVMe-oF and NVMe-TCP protocols.
It is based on a modular SPDK-based architecture, the Kalray's AccessCore® software suite can easily be enriched with additional storage and data services.
WHY KALRAY STORAGE SOLUTIONS ARE SO UNIQUE?
|Performance-optimized Disaggregated NVMe|
Use your NVMe SSDs in a disaggregated solution with the same performance as local NVMe or direct-attached with no performance impact on your storage data services.
KALRAY'S FLASHBOX™: UNLEASH THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR SSDs
DPUs AT THE HEART OF THIS NEW GENERATIONS OF ALL-FLASH-ARRAY
Kalray’s Flashbox™ differentiates from other scale-out NVMe solutions in that all critical storage services run on one single chip in the disaggregated storage appliance: the Kalray MPPA® DPU.
This new generation of data-centric processors offers an unprecedented level of performance and programmability. It is significantly more cost-efficient and gives much higher performance than x86 based architectures.
Kalray’s Flashbox™ revolutionizes how customers use and store high-performance data without compromise on high-availability and scalability. Flashbox™ runs on standard hardware and leverages industry standard protocols (NVMe-oF, NVMe-oF over Ethernet, SPDK), making it very easy for customers to deploy in existing environments.
In the data center world, Kalray’s MPPA® processor is used as an advanced DPU (Data Processing Unit): A new generation of processing accelerator for predominantly data-centric processing tasks.
