Excelero and QCT partnership aims to streamline HPC cloud storage

Share this on social media:

A new partnership has been announced that could enable businesses to develop a storage infrastructure to support the growth of an organisation. Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) and Excelero have partnered to develop a High-Performance Cloud Storage joint solution to help cloud providers and HPC customers leverage low latency NVMe Flash at scale. The company reports that this technology could be a good fit for high-growth segments such as healthcare, HPC and databases.

The QxStor Excelero NVMesh aims to deliver the high IOPs performance capabilities of NVMe Flash at scale without the traditional storage bottlenecks. Targeted at high-performance computing (HPC) users, cloud service providers and web-scale organisations, QxStor Excelero NVMesh combines the QCT next-generation NVMe storage servers with Excelero’s NVMesh software-defined block storage for shared NVMe at local performance.

‘We are proud to have demonstrated that we can leverage the full combined IOPS and throughput of NVMe in QCT All-NVMe Storage Servers leveraging NVMesh,’ said Mike Yang, president of QCT. ‘QxStor Excelero NVMesh is easy to deploy across a variety of workloads, and while we’re continuing to validate large-scale configurations, we see a strong fit for the two technologies across high-growth segments such as healthcare, HPC, databases, and more.’

As AI, ML, databases, analytics and other mission-critical applications push the limits of storage resources, the combination of Excelero and QCT technologies fulfil an unmet and growing demand for storage architectures with high throughput and/or ultra-low latency even at petabyte scale. Tested and verified in disaggregated and converged architectures, the QxStor Excelero NVMesh joint solution achieved impressive performance and maximum efficiency.

QxStor Excelero NVMesh is a pre-validated and pre-configured software-defined storage solution that supports the industry-leading block storage software and helps users accelerate their business with flexibility and tailored infrastructures. Additionally, the solution helps relieve the challenge of latency and data transmission bottleneck for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) with a complete set of validation, patch & update, and NVMe Flash latest technology support that can speed up entire data processing flow of database.

‘Many organisations cannot unlock new business opportunities because the storage infrastructure they have today cannot support them,’ said Lior Gal, CEO and co-founder of Excelero. ‘We are delighted to team up with Quanta Cloud Technology on QxStor Excelero NVMesh and apply Excelero’s extensive expertise with web-scale NVMe storage users so that together we can help more organisations to deploy the optimal storage architecture to power their growth.’
