Solution uses the power of PCIe and DMA to implement networking concepts in an SSD
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- November 14, 2013 -- — PLDA,
the industry leader in PCI Express® IP solutions and Fastor Systems, an
innovative provider of Solid State Drives for enterprise and cloud
applications, today announced the incorporation of PLDA’s PCIe IP with
advanced built-in DMA into an upcoming Fastor Systems’ NVMe Solid State
Systems’ architecture is the industry’s first and only fabric based SSD
in the marketplace today. The use of this non-blocking switch fabric
has enabled a multitude of disruptive benefits resulting in a new
generation of features and functions, or SSD 2.0. These benefits
the bus contention inherent in all existing SSDs, and results in higher
and more stable performance as well higher capacity and lower cost of
the full performance potential of the Flash Memory to be unleashed,
which is not possible in any controller-centric architecture
Enables dramatic reductions in implementation cost and power consumption through SSD virtualization
Fastor Systems NVMe SSD utilizes IP from PLDA to enable the high
performance levels required within their PCIe subsystem. The PLDA IP
provides an easy-to-use and fully configurable PCI Express interface IP
with integrated multi-channel DMA.
integration of PLDA’s silicon-proven IP within Fastor Systems’ solid
state drive will result in a high-quality, integrated hardware and
software solution and we are proud to be a part of its creation” stated
Stephane Hauradou, CTO for PLDA.
to Daniel Mahoney, CEO of Fastor Systems, “PLDA’s IP provides dramatic
improvements in DMA performance in our PCIe interface block, allowing us
to fully demonstrate the performance potential of our new
architecture”. He added, “PLDA’s IP is well supported by their technical
staff, and it will be an important element in the ultimate success of
our product and the next generation SSD architecture which it embodies.”
