Mellanox announces availability of BlueField storage solutions that accelerate NVMe over fabrics

8 Aug 2017 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - Mellanox Technologies Ltd., a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data centre servers and storage systems, has made available storage reference platforms based on its revolutionary BlueField System-on-Chip (SoC), combining a programmable multicore CPU, networking, storage, security, and virtualization acceleration engines into a single, highly integrated device.

BlueField integrates all the technologies needed to connect NVMe over Fabrics flash arrays, with the fastest performance available in the market. BlueField provides 200 Gb/s of throughput and more than 10 million IOPS in a single SoC device. In addition, the powerful on-board multicore ARM processor subsystem enables flexible programmability that allows vendors to differentiate their software-defined storage appliances with advanced capabilities. This makes BlueField the ideal chip to control and connect All Flash Arrays and Just-a-Bunch-Of-Flash (JBOF) systems to InfiniBand and Ethernet Storage fabrics.

"BlueField is the most highly integrated NVMe over Fabrics solution", stated Michael Kagan, CTO of Mellanox. "By tightly integrating high-speed networking, programmable ARM cores, PCIe switching, cache, memory management, and smart offload technology all in one chip; the result is improved performance, power consumption, and affordability for flash storage arrays. BlueField is a key part of our Ethernet Storage Fabric solution, which is the most efficient way to network and share high-performance storage."

"As data takes over the world, networked storage takes over computing", stated Peter Burris, GM and Chief Research Officer of Wikibon. "The BlueField SoC controller is a leading example of the right technology at the right time."

BlueField and the BlueField flash array reference platform were shown at Flash Memory Summit, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in the Mellanox booth. BlueField samples and storage reference design systems will be available in Q4, 2017.

"We use Mellanox NICs and RDMA today, and are excited that BlueField integrates all the technologies needed to connect NVMe over Fabrics flash arrays", stated Yaniv Romem, CTO at Excelero. "We are looking forward to seeing the fastest performing SoC come to market in the form of Mellanox BlueField technology."

"Continuous innovation around NIC and RDMA solutions is why E8 Storage is proud to collaborate with Mellanox to deliver an end-to-end shared NVMe solution for high-performance enterprise storage applications", stated Ziv Serlin, VP System Architecture, E8 Storage. "With 200 Gb/s of throughput and up to 10 million IOPS in a single SoC device, BlueField will bring increased performance and flexible programmability to the industry."

"BlueField will power a new class of flash storage designs based on Mellanox's robust SoC", stated Evan Chien, Director of Inventec. "We are pleased to see this advancement as BlueField enables a new level of flexible programmability that will enable us to differentiate our products with additional advanced capabilities."

"The Mellanox BlueField technology and ConnectX-5 adapters can pass storage traffic directly to our flash controllers and NVRAM devices, thereby greatly enhancing NVMe over Fabrics performance", stated Derek Dicker, vice president and business unit manager for performance storage at Microsemi. "Our SwitchTek PCIe switches and FlashTek SSD controllers are the ideal fit for flash storage systems using the BlueField SoC and we look forward to leveraging this technology."

"BlueField holds the promise of greatly enhancing our product offerings", stated Eugene McCabe, EVP, Sanmina. "As we continue to improve our offerings, BlueField will enable us to offer our customers increased performance and efficiency, thereby delivering a more robust system solution."

"BlueField is a brand new, highly integrated device", stated Peter Tung, Chief Operation Officer for Enterprise Business Group, Wistron. "The advanced performance and capabilities makes it an elegant solution for controlling and connecting our All Flash Arrays to Mellanox InfiniBand and Ethernet storage fabrics."
