Flash Memory Summit (FMS) is the world's premier flash memory conference and exposition, held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, California, USA. The Flash Memory Summit Awards represent an industry recognition of innovation that Kalray’s Flashbox™ solution brings to the market.

“Designing an enterprise storage array today can benefit from a disaggregated architecture that can address performance at the highest levels and capacity expansion in a cost-effective manner.”said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc.“We are proud to recognize the collaboration between Viking and Kalray which provides an integrated storage solution delivering seral millions of IOPS using 12x 100 Gb/s network interface connections distributed across six DPUs-based acceleration cards.”

Flashbox™ is a new concept of All-Flash-Array, based on Kalray’s MPPA® DPU processor (“Data Processing Unit”) and co-designed with Viking Enterprise Solutions.

Whereas most advanced All-Flash Array solutions currently use multiple adapter cards with power-hungry and expensive CPUs (x86) that run storage services, the concept of Flashbox™ is to run all of the critical functions of a disaggregated storage appliance on a single chip: the Kalray MPPA® DPU. This solution delivers an unprecedent level of integration, speed, scalability and performance at an affordable cost. Thanks to Flashbox™ All-Flash-Array, data centers can reduce critical metrics such as $/IOP and IOPs/watt.

“It is a great honor to win a Flash Memory Summit award for our innovative concept of Flashbox™ All-Flash Array.”said Kalray CEO, Éric Baissus.“We strongly believe that wide adoption of NVMe requires adopting new innovative approaches. This is Flashbox™. Flashbox™ is a unique high-performance, low power, cost-effective, high-available new generation of storage appliances based on Kalray’s DPU technology. Powered by our Smart Storage Acceleration Card, Flashbox™ allows data center customers to disaggregate their Flash tier while maintaining the same performance of local NVMe, thereby optimizing both Flash performance and capacity across the compute tier of their data center.”

A unique concept on the market today, Flashbox™ benefits from ultra-fast interfaces and low power consumption. It can deliver unprecedent performance figures using 12x 100 Gb/s network interface connections distributed across six K200-LP cards and is based on market standards such as Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK), NVMe/TCP or RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCEv1/v2).

Flashbox™ is a 2U array, with support for 24 U.2 NVMe SSDs. Flashbox™ JBOF (Just A Bunch of Flash) replaces x86 servers of traditional storage nodes with Kalray PCIe cards (K200-LP) which incorporate the Kalray DPU. The high-availability Flashbox™ has two Viking Enterprise Solutions fabric modules, each module has a PCIe switch network and supports three PCIe add-in card slots (half-height, half-length). Each Kalray DPU PCIe add-in card can run all the critical functions and data services required of a storage appliance. Flashbox™ can scale from two to six of the K200-LP PCIe add-in cards allowing the end customer to scale performance independently of capacity of the array. This unique solution is lower cost and significantly lower power from a traditional NVMe storage array.

Additionally, users will be able to take advantage of current and future data services integrated into the solution software stack such as data reduction (compression or deduplication), data availability (RAID or erasure encoding) or data security (encryption). This will further enhance critical business metrics by offloading these services from the data center compute tiers. Flashbox™ offers the ideal SDS (software defined storage) solution by abstracting and disaggregating the Flash tier from the compute tier.
