Cavium Demonstrates Breakthrough NVMe over Fabrics Performance at Flash Memory Summit 2017

Live Demonstration of Over 2 Million FC-NVMe IOPS with QLogic® Gen 6 Fibre Channel and Concurrent RoCE and iWARP NVMe over Fabrics with FastLinQ®

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable secure and intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud, wired and wireless networking, will showcase a broad range of NVMe over Fabric solutions including FC-NVMe on Gen 6 Fibre Channel and NVMe over Fabrics concurrently over RoCE and iWARP on Cavium FastlinQ 45000/41000 Series Ethernet NICs at the Flash Memory Summit 2017 at Booth #815 from August 8-10, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) specification is an emerging technology that gives data center networks unprecedented access to NVMe SSD storage. It delivers efficient scaling of NVMe-based SSDs over data center fabrics including Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) networks (iWARP and RoCE), as well as, Fibre Channel.  This enables faster, more scalable connections between servers and storage as well as between storage controllers and NVMe enclosures.  

Cavium is leading the transition to NVMe over Fabrics by enabling a broad range of high-performance solutions that seamlessly transition customer infrastructure and applications from legacy storage to current and next-generation flash/NVMe, and is the only solution supplier offering both NVMe-oF over Universal RDMA and Fibre Channel Adapters.

The Flash Memory Summit 2017 will feature the latest technology trends, the most exciting products, and the broadest coverage of a rapidly expanding market around flash, fabrics and end-to-end solutions. Cavium participation in Flash Memory Summit 2017 spans multiple live performance and interop demonstrations, speaking sessions by industry experts and product showcases. Key demonstrations and engagements include:

Cavium QLogic NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) Solution

Next-generation data intensive workloads utilize low latency NVMe flash-based storage to meet ever increasing user demand. By combining the lossless, highly deterministic nature of Fibre Channel with NVMe, FC-NVMe delivers the performance, application response time, and scalability needed for next generation data centers, while leveraging existing Fibre Channel infrastructure. Currently shipping QLogic 2690 Series of Enhanced Gen 5 and 2700 Series of Gen 6 Fibre Channel adapters are FC-NVMe ready and are being evaluated in FC-NVMe fabrics by multiple customers and partners across the industry.

Cavium FastLinQ NVMe over Ethernet Universal RDMA (NVMe-oF) Solution

Driven by the performance demands of NVMe, high-performance, low latency networking is a fundamental requirement for a fabric to scale out. Ethernet-based RDMA fabrics with their exceptional low latency and offload capabilities will become a popular choice for NVMe over Fabrics.  Cavium FastLinQ 45000/41000 Series Ethernet NICs support Universal RDMA (RoCE, RoCEv2 and iWARP concurrently) and deliver the ultimate choice to customers for scaling out NVMe over a general purpose Ethernet fabric.

Cavium FastLinQ 40000 Series 10/25/40/50/100GbE, QLogic 2690 Series Enhanced Gen 5 16GFC and 2700 Series Gen 6 32GFC adapters are available from Cavium and multiple leading OEMs and ODMs.
