Xilinx Provides Design Platform for Scalable Storage

At the Flash Memory Summit earlier this month in Santa Clara, CA, leading FPGA vendor Xilinx rolled out the Xilinx NVMe-over-Fabrics reference design. It provides designers a flexible platform to enable scalable storage solutions and integrate custom acceleration functions into their storage arrays. The reference design eliminates the need for a dedicated x86 processor or an external NIC, thus creating a highly integrated, reliable and cost-effective solution. The NVMe-over-Fabrics (NVM-oF) reference platform is implemented on the Fidus Sidewinder card which supports up to 4 NVMe SSDs, and has a Xilinx ZU19EG Ultrascale+ MPSoC device. The reference platform is delivered with the required software drivers.

The Xilinx NVMe-over-Fabric Platform is a single-chip storage solution that integrates NVMe-over-Fabric and target RDMA offloads with a processing subsystem to provide a very power-efficient and low-latency solution compared to existing products that require both an external host chip and a Network Interface Card (NIC). This 2x100Gb Ethernet platform enables customers to implement value-added storage workload acceleration, such as compression and erasure code.
