Excelero enables customers to build distributed, high-performance Server SAN with standard hardware for applications at any scale.
Founded in 2014 by a team of storage veterans and inspired by the Tech Giants’ shared-nothing architectures for web-scale applications, the company has created a Software-Defined Block Storage solution that meets performance and scalability requirements of the largest web-scale and enterprise applications.
New applications, such as IoT, Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, have a big impact on storage workloads and require a significant transformation in storage architectures. To meet the requirements of these new application workloads, enterprises and service providers are seeking to optimize their infrastructures in the same way as these tech giants.
Excelero’s NVMesh is a truly converged Software-Defined Block Storage solution designed to meet storage requirements for applications of any scale, without compromise. The solution features an intelligent management layer that abstracts underlying hardware with CPU offload, creates logical volumes with redundancy, and provides centralized management and monitoring. Customers benefit from the performance of local flash, with the convenience of centralized storage and the cost savings of standard hardware. The solution has been deployed for Industrial IoT services, machine learning applications and simulation visualization.
Virtual SAN and Unified NVMe makes NVMesh Unique
NVMesh is the only virtual SAN approach for shared NVMe: it is the only solution that is 100% software-only. Customers can choose any standard servers and state-of-the-art flash drives to meet all their storage requirements.
NVMesh allows unmodified applications to utilize pooled NVMe storage across a network at local speeds and latencies. A unified pool of NVMe enables customers to maximize NVMe utilization and avoids data locality issues for the application.
NVMesh enables 100% converged infrastructure by full logical disaggregation of storage and compute. The patented Remote Direct Drive Access (RDDA) bypasses the CPU and avoids the noisy neighbors effect for the application. Applications can leverage the full capability of CPU.
NVMesh is the industry’s most flexible deployment model for Server SAN: it is deployed as a virtual, distributed non-volatile array and supports both converged and disaggregated architectures, and even mixed environments, giving customers full freedom in their architectural design.
NVMesh is the only NVMe sharing technology that scales performance linearly at near 100% efficiency. The shift of data services from centralized CPU to complete client side distribution provides deterministic performance for applications and enables customers to maximize the utilization of their flash drives.
