The nvNITRO Storage Accelerator is a revolutionary MRAM based SSD that has the high speed and high endurance of DRAMs combined with the non-volatility of Flash, all without the need for power backup. Available in PCIe and U.2 form factors. Powered by Everspin, this product can be used for metadata caching to dramatically accelerate write performance without the need for battery backup. SMART’s new nvNITRO Storage Accelerator is the first in an emerging lineup of MRAM-based persistent memory products. SMART Modular Technologies is a member of NVM Express. Features and benefits include amazingly fast performance - 1.5 Million+ IOPS (4K Random Read/Write), consistent, ultra-low latency with a short tail (as low as 2μs, end to end), NVMe SSD Access Mode, and persistent, non-volatile memory, without need for batteries or supercapacitors.
The nvNITRO Storage Accelerator enables high-speed transactions to be logged as completed before they are written to the final media location. This high-performance, non-volatile memory enables the system to begin the next transaction with the confidence that the previous transaction is logged to a secure location without any risk of data being lost. These storage accelerators can also be used to accelerate reads and writes of data from high performance computing (HPC) applications. Simulations can be sped up optimizing the time to recommendation for financial analysts. The SMART Storage Accelerator can act as a high performance remote direct memory access (RDMA) storage location, pooling critical data as a shared central pool. Persistence means that transactional data is never at risk from loss due to power interruptions. This reduces the risk of failure typically associated with batteries or supercapacitors but also reduces potential servicing issues
that bring downtime and lost productivity.
