SanDisk Announces ULLtraDIMM Design Win with Huawei

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, today announced that its award-winning ULLtraDIMM™ Solid State Drive (SSD), has been selected by Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd for inclusion in its RH8100 V3 servers. Huawei selected the ULLtraDIMM SSD after extensive testing under a variety of enterprise workloads and end-user scenarios using the RH8100 V3 server, which demonstrated the ULLtraDIMM SSD achieved the industry’s lowest write latency at less than five microseconds and offered bandwidth that topped that of any other SSD solution. Adding flash-based storage to the DDR memory bus with direct connection to the processor allows Huawei to deliver a powerful solution to help customers address growing data center application performance requirements without significant additional infrastructure investments.

“The ULLtraDIMM SSD was designed to expand the reach of ultra-low latency flash storage throughout the data center and scale to meet the requirements of any enterprise application, no matter how bandwidth or capacity intensive,” said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “We are very excited to partner with Huawei to offer this innovative, ultra-low latency storage solution, which will accelerate the performance of its customers’ cloud, virtualization, OLTP, HPC and other applications, and help them experience the benefits of a flash-transformed data center.”

Huawei is committed to delivering complete SSD solutions that combine the power of the ULLtraDIMM with Huawei’s self-developed caching software in order to accelerate application performance with the lowest possible latency, while offering the scalability to handle bandwidth-intensive database and virtualization applications. With the ULLtraDIMM SSD, Huawei’s RH8100 V3 servers can deliver random write IOPS improved by more than 100 percent in a 4 x 400G RAID0 configuration, which provides more than four times the number of IOPS per server. Huawei will also look to offer the ULLtraDIMM SSD as part of the Huawei Cache solution for key database and virtualization deployments.

“We are eager to leverage the ULLtraDIMM in our new RH8100 servers in order to provide our customers with solutions that help maximize their performance per watt, per square foot with innovations in power savings and cooling, as well as increased compute and storage density,” said Qiu Long, President of Server Business, IT Product Line, Huawei. “With the ULLtraDIMM, we can deliver complete solutions that offer a cost-effective path to scalable, ultra-low latency performance for database and virtualization applications.”

Enterprise data volumes have already broken through traditional storage barriers and, based on IDC statistics, by 2020 global data volumes are expected to reach 44 zetabytes. The growth of these business functions coupled with end-users’ demand for instant access to information are spurring the need for a revolution in how chief information officers (CIOs) leverage storage to manage requirements while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).

“Having the ability to accelerate applications and reduce latency will have tremendous value in Huawei’s enterprise strategy. Our 2014 market research indicated that Huawei’s servers have been ranked as the top server choice for cloud and mobility in China. By leveraging SanDisk’s ULLtraDIMM in its RH8100 V3 servers, Huawei will strengthen its technology portfolio and value in the enterprise market sector,” said Linsey Yang, Analyst of Sino-Bridges Research and Consulting Ltd., a leading Chinese research firm.

The addition of flash technology on the DRAM memory channel expands the growing penetration of flash storage technology in enterprise data centers, and complements SanDisk’s existing flash-based server hardware and software storage solutions. Utilizing flash on the memory bus ensures ultra-low latency in business applications and results in improved application response times. Additional ULLtraDIMM SSDs can also be added to available DIMM slots, scaling performance and capacity without impacting latency. This creates new opportunities for server system designs to support use cases that require extremely fast storage, such as VDI, transaction processing, virtualization and cloud computing.

SanDisk will be showcasing the ULLtraDIMM SSD, which was developed in partnership with Diablo Technologies, in booth number 5003 at the Huawei Cloud Congress (HCC), one of the world’s leading technology events, taking place at the Shanghai Expo Center, September 16-17, 2014.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
