DataCore to Present Software-Defined Storage and the Customer Path to NVMe-oF at Flash Memory Summit

Session to Explore How Software-Defined Storage Can Help Accelerate NVMe Adoption by Delivering Enterprise-Class Data Services Across Existing and New Storage Systems

WHO: Ben Treiber is the senior director of engineering product management at DataCore Software. He joined DataCore after its founding in 1998. Prior to entering the software-defined storage industry, Treiber worked in the aerospace and real-time (computer simulation) industries for companies including NASA (Langley Research Center), General Electric and Harris Corporation, where high-speed, low latency and determinism were critical product capabilities. He holds a B.S. in Aeronautical Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

WHAT: Adding a new storage system is a great deal of work for IT departments; data migration, new management tools, additional hardware and deciding what applications to assign to the new, faster technology are all important considerations. NVMe in particular is even more challenging because taking advantage of faster storage requires making the entire system faster. Treiber’s upcoming session at Flash Memory Summit will explore how software-defined storage is an attractive option to address these challenges and accelerate the adoption of NVMe over Fabric.

Treiber will discuss the need for a smart and agile software-defined storage layer that enables enterprises to seamlessly integrate new technologies such as NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF). DataCore has a customer base consisting of more than 10,000 software-defined storage and hyperconverged deployments, of which the majority utilize Fibre Channel and Parallel I/O technologies. Many DataCore customers depend on the product’s high availability and high-performance for mission-critical business and database applications. While there is always a need for more performance, those customers cannot afford to suffer the disruptions required to try new technologies and the “rip and replace” abandonment of current investments. Treiber will detail what DataCore has learned from its customer base and how software-defined storage and Parallel I/O technologies can overcome the challenges and disruptions that can potentially slow down the successful migration to NVMe-oF.

The presentation is designed to benefit anyone that is interested in learning how software-defined storage can accelerate the adoption of NVMe technology in existing IT environments, and how it can become an integral part of the storage infrastructure of an organization.

In related news, DataCore also recently announced that it has enhanced its software-defined storage solutions, allowing companies to realize the substantial IOPS and latency improvements enabled through support for Emulex® Gen 6 (16/32Gb) Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) by Broadcom. With this update, DataCore continues to eliminate storage bottlenecks and deliver the performance improvements needed to meet the business requirements for real-time data – simply and cost-effectively. This release is an example of the ongoing collaboration between DataCore and Broadcom to deliver maximum performance and flexibility as both companies continue working towards NVMe-oF capabilities for workloads that require the absolute lowest possible latency and highest performance.

WHEN: Flash Memory Summit will take place from August 7-9, 2018. Ben Treiber’s session will take place on Tuesday, August 7th at 10:15 a.m.
