Mon 14 Apr 2014
St. Albans, UK (March 17, 2014) – Boston Limited today announces its plans to deploy application accelerating SSDs using Memory Channel Storage™ technology within Supermicro server and storage platforms which is ideally suited for a broad range of big-data analytical workloads, high-frequency trading, in-memory compute, virtualisation, VDI, and database acceleration – putting your data in motion.
Powered by Diablo Technologies Memory Channel Storage (MCS™), the SSD’s innovative design connects flash storage to the memory channel using an industry standard DIMM form factor enabling it to be fully interoperable with RDIMM’s. Diablo’s Memory Channel Storage enables new levels of application performance supported by next generation enterprise server and storage system designs.
Boston has combined the MCS technology with over 20 years’ experience of high performance and low latency computing to deliver certified solutions capable of delivering as low as 5 μsec write latency, 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 Limited, says “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”
San Jose, California based Supermicro, the leading innovator in high-performance, high-efficiency server solutions is supporting Boston with a range of MCS validated server platforms optimized for latency sensitive workloads. Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro explains, “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 unrivaled performance and reliability advantage for their end-to-end computing solutions.”
