PMC's New Flashtec NVRAM Drives Achieve 10 Million IOPS

PMC introduced its new Flashtec NVRAM Drives -- a new ultra-fast storage class memory tier to accelerate critical applications in scale-out storage and all-flash arrays.

The new PCIe 3.0 drives combine the speed and endurance of DRAM with the persistency of NAND flash.  The company claims ten times higher performance than the fastest Solid State Drive (SSD), at more than 10 million I/Os per second (IOPS), with sub-microsecond latency. The drives can be used as both a persistent memory extension mapped directly to the host, delivering more than 10 million IOPS for small, random access transactions, and as an NVMe block device for efficient DMA transactions, reaching more than one million random read 4KB IOPS.

“Native PCIe-based solutions are a major disruption to the SSD market because they provide a direct link between the CPU and flash, breaking the traditional performance scale,” said Derek Dicker, vice president of the NVM Solutions Group at PMC. “The PMC Flashtec family sets a new benchmark for storage performance, and our standards-based architecture allows our customers to get their storage solutions to market much sooner with differentiated features tuned for cost, performance and endurance.”

The Flashtec NVRAM Drive family is based on PMC’s NVMe controllers, which enable SSDs with up to 8TB of storage and performance of up to 875,000 random read 4KB IOPS, two times greater capacity and performance than other controllers.

The Flashtec NVRAM Drives are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities in production quantities as early as Q4 2014. The Flashtec NVMe controllers are available in 16- and 32-channel options and are in high-volume production.
