OTTAWA, Ontario, Aug. 6 — Diablo Technologies today announced a strategic partnership with Supermicro to bring the industry’s lowest latency, non-volatile memory solution to server systems. As part of the initiative, Supermicro customers will have access to the latest X9-series platforms optimized for Memory Channel Storage (MCS), through the SanDisk ULLtraDIMM SSD. Supermicro’s extensive Green Computing portfolio (including Twin architecture, GPU compute, SuperStorage and Hyper-Speed hardware accelerated platforms) now features a broad selection of MCS-enabled solutions. In addition, Diablo and Supermicro will collaborate on next-generation server and storage architectures, targeting a wide range of mission-critical, enterprise workloads.
“We are very proud to offer key enabling technology for this outstanding product line and to jointly deliver game changing storage-compute solutions,” said Riccardo Badalone, CEO and Co-founder of Diablo Technologies. “By leveraging our combined expertise, we are catalyzing the emergence of a new class of enterprise server architectures. The resulting synergy provides an essential competitive edge for both companies and represents an important milestone in the expansion of the MCS ecosystem.”
Supermicro’s SuperServer and SuperStorage architectures deliver significantly advanced levels of integration between system memory and NAND flash. The company’s Green Computing solutions provide flexibility to scale out MCS-based devices to customized levels of capacity, performance and acceleration. Applications such as virtualization, big data analytics, database and low-latency trading can now seamlessly benefit from the disruptive performance advantages provided by the MCS architecture. As part of the integration, MCS-enabled systems will be available to Supermicro customers worldwide with support for major operating systems, including Linux, Windows and VMware ESXi 5.1 and 5.5.
“Supermicro Green Computing solutions are the leading technology enablement platform in the industry,” said Wally Liaw, Sr. Vice President of Sales at Supermicro. “Our collaboration with Diablo Technologies to optimize and integrate MCS across our SuperServer and SuperStorage product lines will deliver the fastest server solutions that not only offer unprecedented levels of IOPS but also maximize energy efficiency for the most cost effective, performance-per-watt computing solutions on the market.”
