The Performance of NVMe™ Flash in Shared Storage

Western Digital’s OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF storage platform extends the high performance of NVMe flash to shared storage. It provides low-latency sharing of NVMe SSDs over a high-performance Ethernet fabric to deliver similar performance to locally attached NVMe SSDs. Unsurpassed connectivity in its class using Western Digital RapidFlex NVMe-oF controllers, allows up to six hosts to be attached without a switch, like a traditional JBOF.

NVMe-over-Fabrics, or NVMe-oF, is a networked storage protocol that allows storage to be disaggregated from compute to make that storage widely available to multiple applications and servers. By enabling applications to share a common pool of storage capacity, data can be easily shared between applications or needed capacity can be allocated to an application to respond to application needs.

OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF storage platform can also be used as a disaggregated storage resource in an open composable infrastructure environment using the Open Composable API. The platform can also be specified with just two RapidFlex adapters for simpler environments and as a direct replacement for SAS external storage. OpenFlex Data24 is built to deliver high availability and enterprise-class reliability. The entire platform, including SSDs, is backed with a 5-year limited warranty.
