Our High Performance Storage is based on the DAOS (Distributed Asynchronous Object Storage) technology developed by Intel®. It combines NVMe SSD hard disks with Persistent RAM components in x86_64-based server systems and thus represents a software-defined scale-out storage.
The decisive component here is Persistent RAM. But what is persistent memory actually?
Persistent memory is a non-volatile memory with low latency and a storage density greater than or equal to that of DRAM. Its strengths lie in the fact that data is safely stored in memory even if the system is affected by a sudden unexpected event such as a power failure. Persistent memory is now used in more and more applications such as databases, storage systems, virtualisation, Big Data and IoT.
With FlexStorage High Performance, we have the necessary tools to drive the next storage generations. In doing so, we go far beyond the mere acceleration of access time.
Data security is established within the high-performance storage by means of data redundancy. In the customer project, data is written several times so that the failure of a storage node has no effect on the provision of the service. The number of data copies can be freely defined.
Thanks to integrated self-healing mechanisms, in the event of failures all data is restored within the shortest possible time to restore the desired level of security.
In addition, the integrity of all data is ensured during each transmission with the help of checksums.
Our solution has numerous access options that can be adapted to the desired application. For example, data can be mounted directly from the Linux user space as a file system via Intel's own DAOS protocols with the highest performance and lowest latencies. The network file system provided is POSIX-compliant, supports standard file locking and is suitable for use by several servers simultaneously without further cluster file system overlay. It is also possible to access the same data using CIFS/SMB, NFS or S3.
Block storage for modern virtualisation environments can be connected using NVMe-oF or the older iSCSI protocol.
A native S3 Object Store is also available to work directly and seamlessly with new applications.
FlexStorage High Performance is used, among other things, to reduce the latency of applications, as in the following examples:
AI/ML computations. Our solution significantly accelerates your AI and ML workloads. Waiting times are eliminated and GPUs can be better utilised. This saves costs and ensures faster results.
Financial transactions. Financial trading applications need reliable and powerful databases to process and execute financial transactions quickly. Wir sorgen für den richtigen Speicher, um ihnen neben einem Wettbewerbsvorteil höhere Umsatzmöglichkeiten zu bieten.
Fraud detection. weSystems Intel DAOS Service accelerates data analysis of millions of financial institution and insurance company records. This uncovers fraudulent transactions and prevents financial loss and damage to the brand name.
Cyber threat analysis. Persistent Memory enables organisations to quickly detect and defend against ever-growing cyber threats.
Personalisation in E-Commerce. Persistent Memory ermöglicht es Unternehmen, das Online-Erlebnis für Benutzer anzupassen, indem relevante Inhalte und Werbung an sie zurückgegeben werden. Dies führt zu höheren Klickraten und mehr Umsatzmöglichkeiten im E-Commerce.
Internet of Things (IoT). Faster real-time processing of huge data sets shortens time-to-value.
