PRESS RELEASE

SSD Memory Channel Storage

Boston Limited has announced that it plans to deploy SSDs using Memory Channel Storage technology within its Supermicro server and storage platforms. The technology will suit 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 SSDs' design connects flash storage to the memory channel using an industry-standard DIMM form factor, enabling it to be fully interoperable with RDIMM’s.

The company claims that the SSDs can deliver a write latency as low as 5μs, random read/write performance of up to 150k/65k IOPS per DIMM, and data transfer rates up to 1GB/s/760MB/s sequential read/write – enabling I/O performance to scale while maintaining low latency.

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’.
