Infortrend | December 01, 2021
Infortrend Technology, Inc., the industry-leading enterprise storage provider, introduces U.2 NVMe SSD EonStor DS 4000U all-flash SAN storage solution to boost IOPS and reduce latency for increased I/O operation request responsiveness in performance-demanding SAN applications like database and virtualization.
Oftentimes, database is a mission-critical component performing a function essential for business operations, thus, reliable high-performance storage is needed: It must be protected from potential failures and promptly serve many simultaneous random real-time transactions/inquiries from clients. As for organizations' virtualized environments, storage is required to quickly respond to I/O requests from multiple virtual machines.
EonStor DS high availability SAN storage supports the market-trending cost-effective U.2 SSD to deliver 1000K IOPS and 11GB/s throughput (90% performance increase compared to the previous model). With high performance and significantly reduced latency, it is capable to quickly process multiple I/O requests of virtual machines and database data queries. In a hybrid configuration, the auto-tiering function automatically allocates data to high-performance or high-capacity tiers to provide better storage efficiency.
Importantly, DS guarantees uninterrupted services with complete data protection design: multiple RAID levels prevent data loss due to drive damage, snapshots and remote replication fulfill local and remote data backup, while supercapacitor ensures that data is not lost if the system is powered off. For virtualized environments, EonStor DS was certified as VMware Ready to assist businesses in keeping up with the growing demand for IT resources. Also, DS features SSD optimization technology, allowing to extend SSD service life, improve data protection, and simplify SSD management.
When it comes to such performance-critical SAN applications as database and virtualization, enterprises rely heavily on storage devices, and EonStor DS 4000U with U.2 SSD support provides low latency and incredibly high IOPS to ensure quick I/O operations for these workloads.”

MemVerge | September 22, 2021
MemVerge, the pioneers of Big Memory software, announced Memory Machine™ Big Memory virtualization software has been selected by Penn State Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences to speed the genomic analytic processing for plant DNA research to develop more sustainable plant products.
At the forefront of research and development, Penn State Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences seeks to find solutions to pressing health and agriculture issues and their interaction with the environment. To achieve this, Penn State has become a go-to place for analyzing and accessing dispersed and large data in an effort to facilitate transformative life sciences discoveries by enabling path-breaking research, simulating innovation, and inspiring work in a collaborative environment.
Among its flagship research projects is the analysis of plant DNA sequencing to identify opportunities to develop plants - from cocoa to apples - that can better sustain droughts, diseases and achieve longer transportation and shelf life, which is important to improve food supplies for third world nations. To achieve this research, the bioscientists at Penn State must analyze genome sequences that are even more complex than human genomes. Using traditional analytic methods, it could take weeks to process specific workloads and running jobs can often fail as data is much larger than the available compute memory.
Using MemVerge Memory Machine memory virtualization software, Penn State has been able to accelerate discovery for its plant DNA research. By deploying a pool of software-defined DRAM and persistent memory (PMem), the life sciences institute has been able to speed the completion of their analytic pipeline and run jobs that it hasn't been able to process before.
"MemVerge Memory Machine has been a game-changing technology for our plant DNA research," said Claude dePamphilis, Director of the Center for Parasitic and Carnivorous Plants at Penn State Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences. "The innovative technology helps us achieve DRAM-like performance from a mixed memory configuration. This has not only dramatically increased our time to research findings but has also saved us considerable budget in the process."
Memory Machine software provided scientists at Penn State with transparent access to virtualized DRAM and PMem memory and ZeroIO™ Snapshot technology. The in-memory snapshot technology allows researchers to roll back workloads quickly to specific points in time for adaptive analyses and ensure resilience with lightning-fast crash recovery. This allows new genomic testing to continue without downtime.
"The genomic sequencing use case at Penn State is an exceptional example of how Big Memory technology can overcome the barriers presented by the 'data bigger than memory' problem," said Charles Fan, CEO of MemVerge. "By eliminating the boundaries of traditional compute infrastructure and creating a memory fabric that can cost-effectively support the memory-intensive processes applications such as genomics analytics require, we are changing the landscape of what is possible. Memory is no longer a limitation for applications such as genomics sequencing, in-memory databases and other data-intensive usages such as animation and VFX. We're opening the door for increased innovation, landmark research findings and better health outcomes."
MemVerge Memory Machine makes 100% use of available memory capacity while providing new operational capabilities to memory-centric workloads. Memory Machine answers the need for a modern in-memory computing model to support emerging applications that require real-time analytics, true in-memory computing, and fault-tolerant memory persistence to speed massive processing workloads.
Memory is too small. Storage is too slow. In response, MemVerge is pioneering the new category of Big Memory Computing that simultaneously delivers the nanosecond performance of memory with the massive capacity of storage. MemVerge® Memory Machine™ Software transparently virtualizes different types of memory hardware into a pool of software-defined memory with the same performance of DRAM, but with many times the capacity. On top of the transparent memory service, Memory Machine provides the industry's first suite of data services that can provision petabytes of capacity, performance, availability, and mobility at the speed of memory and across the clouds.
