Micron, VMware, Supermicro, Nexenta doodle array designs

Cosy club comes up with flashy little reference architecture

Micron has devised a set of all-flash purpose-built, scale-out product designs in collaboration with VMware, Supermicro and Nexenta.

  • Micron Accelerated Solution for VMware Virtual SAN Ready Nodes
  • Micron Accelerated Ceph Storage Solution
  • Micron Accelerated NexentaEdge Solution

Micron, Supermicro and VMware have designed all-flash Micron Virtual SAN AF-4, AF-6, and AF-8 Ready Nodes. They use the deduplication, compression and erasure coding available in VMware Virtual SAN 6.2. Because of this, Micron says, they can be purchased for as low as $0.44/GB (effective capacity), which includes the full MSRP of all server hardware, software and three years of support.

Micron has designed an all-flash Ceph storage product based on Supermicro servers that hits 1 million IOPS and reaches 140Gbit/s throughput.

The Micron Accelerated NexentaEdge Solution will provide native block, iSCSI block, Swift and S3 object services to OpenStack, VMware and container-based infrastructures. This collaboration is expected to result in a joint reference architecture and purchasable solution from Supermicro in the second half of 2016.

A Micron Storage Solutions Center (MSSC) has opened in Austin, Texas, to showcase Micron's partnership with other suppliers to produce all-flash storage designs. This MSSC is also the engineering home for Micron Accelerated Solutions.
