FMS 2014 - Enmotus briefs us on their latest developments

Enmotus briefs us on their new data acceleration software

Flash Memory Summit 2014 - Enmotus stopped by to brief us on their Storage MicroVirtualization and MicroTiering data storage solution. The FuzeDrive software takes a new approach to combining the speed of flash with the capacity of HDDs. Users can install any SSD of their choice, be it m.2, PCIe, SATA, or SAS, and use it to accelerate the underlying HDD storage. Thee Enmotus software intelligently analyzes the data patterns and decides which data to promote to the flash storage. The software works at the block level, so users can still leverage RAID configurations to provide HA capabilities.

One of the immediate benefits is that users get to actually use the capacity of the flash device installed in their system, and of course the speed of the system is increased almost immediately. Enmotus is also working on a collaboration with Viking to work with their NVDIMM technology, which should enable even more expansive data acceleration possibilities. We will be including a video of a working demo, so stay tuned to these pages for an update.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Paul Alcorn

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
