Boston deploys Supermicro MCS storage for big data workloads

22 April 2014



Boston has announced it plans to deploy application accelerating SSDs using Memory Channel Storage technology within Supermicro server and storage platforms suited to a broad range of big-data analytical workloads, high-frequency trading, in-memory compute, virtualisation, VDI, and database acceleration.

Powered by Diablo Technologies Memory Channel Storage (MCS), the SSD’s design connects flash storage to the memory channel using an industry standard DIMM form factor, enabling it to be fully interoperable with RDIMM’s.

Boston claims this new technology can achieve up to 5μs write latency, random read/write performance of up to 150K/65K IOPS per DIMM, and data transfer rates up to 1GBps/760MBps sequential read/write performance.

Manoj Nayee, managing director of Boston, said: ‘Customers are demanding more and more performance from their systems. We have developed a certified range of systems that will help deliver this performance to clients in various sectors looking for pure acceleration.’

Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro explained: ‘Supermicro’s MCS tuned Hyper-Speed and Enterprise class platforms dramatically accelerate I/O for mission critical, data intensive applications delivering customers such as Boston an unrivalled performance and reliability advantage for their end-to-end computing solutions.’
