SANBlaze Announces PCIe NVMe Gen4 at Flash Memory Summit (FMS) 2019

MONDAY AUGUST 6, 2019. LITTLETON, MA. SAN짯Bla짯ze Tech짯no짯lo짯gy, Inc., a lea짯der in NVMe test plat짯forms and Sto짯rage Emu짯la짯ti짯on sys짯tems, announ짯ced today that it is demons짯t짯ra짯ting its new sta짯te-of-the-art PCIe NVMe Gen4 Test Sys짯tem, the SAN짯Bla짯ze SBEx짯press-RM4 at FMS, pro짯vi짯ding NVMe SSD manu짯fac짯tu짯r짯ers per짯for짯mance and com짯pli짯ance test짯ing on their NVMe solid sta짯te sto짯rage dri짯ves. As ear짯ly adop짯ters, major manu짯fac짯tu짯r짯ers of NVMe Gen4 SSDs have qua짯li짯fied SANBlaze셲 Gen4 offe짯ring, and the com짯pa짯ny is now exci짯ted to announ짯ce gene짯ral avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of their Gen4 solu짯ti짯on during FMS.

Gen4, the next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of PCIe (PCIe 4.0) dou짯bles the band짯width from 1 GB/s to 2 GB/s per lane while pro짯vi짯ding bet짯ter signal relia짯bi짯li짯ty and inte짯gri짯ty for impro짯ved per짯for짯mance. With PCIe Gen4 pro짯vi짯ding the fas짯test inter짯con짯nect speeds to date, the SAN짯Bla짯ze SBEx짯press has now dou짯bled its band짯width from 16GB to 32GB per host adapter.

SAN짯Bla짯ze SBEx짯press-RM4 PCIe Gen4 Testsystem

PCIe Gen4 tech짯no짯lo짯gy is here, and it셲 per짯fect짯ly matched to the next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of sto짯rage that NVMe Gen4 dri짯ves offer. PCIe Gen4 dou짯bles the band짯width of the sto짯rage inter짯con짯nect and keeps NVMe well ahead of any com짯pe짯ting tech짯no짯lo짯gy, said Vin짯ce Asbridge, Pre짯si짯dent of SAN짯Bla짯ze. 쏥en4 also intro짯du짯ces a signi짯fi짯cant set of chal짯lenges to dri짯ve manu짯fac짯tu짯r짯ers in terms of qua짯li짯fi짯ca짯ti짯on infra짯struc짯tu짯re.  Our sta짯te-of-the-art SBEx짯press-RM4 sys짯tem allows con짯nec짯ti짯vi짯ty of up to 16 NVMe Gen4 dri짯ves, sin짯gle or dual path, allo짯wing dri짯ve manu짯fac짯tu짯r짯ers to qua짯li짯fy NVMe Gen4 dri짯ves at PCIe Gen4 speeds using our Cer짯ti짯fied by SAN짯Bla짯ze suite of auto짯ma짯ted tests.

Fea짯tures in the new SAN짯Bla짯ze SBEx짯press-RM4 include U.2 or U.3 sin짯gle port or dual port risers; hot plug, slot power, and dri짯ve pre짯sence under soft짯ware con짯trol; vol짯ta짯ge and power mea짯su짯re짯ment at each dri짯ve; six fans for opti짯mal ther짯mal design; and vol짯ta짯ge mar짯gi짯ning +/- 15%.

In addi짯ti짯on to test짯ing PCIe NVMe Gen4 dri짯ves, SAN짯Bla짯ze offers initia짯tor and tar짯get test짯ing of NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF꽓) inclu짯ding NVMe over RoCE, Fib짯re Chan짯nel, and TCP/IP. In sum짯ma짯ry, SAN짯Bla짯ze tests NVMe over Ever짯y짯thing꽓 and is the lea짯der in the NVMe SSD and NVMe over Fabric test짯ing space.

SAN짯Bla짯ze will pro짯vi짯de a live demons짯tra짯ti짯on of its SBEx짯press-RM4 NVMe Gen4 Test Sys짯tem during FMS at the San짯ta Cla짯ra Con짯ven짯ti짯on Cen짯ter in San짯ta Cla짯ra, CA August 6th 8th 2019. Stop by Booth #624 to see a live demons짯tra짯ti짯on of SANBlaze셲 new test sys짯tem for PCIe Gen4 NVMe Drives.
