Intel FPGA-Accelerated Storage Technology to be Featured at Flash Memory Summit

Storage and data center operators can ratchet up to the next level of capability for their infrastructure by using Intel field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and Intel solid state drives (SSDs) to create elastic pools of Non-Volatile Memory Express over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) storage. This storage acceleration solution – which offers new levels of performance and efficiency in big data and enterprise applications, along with enabling real-time analytics – is one of several activities that Intel is engaged in at the upcoming Flash Memory Summit taking place Aug. 7-10 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Intel and Attala Systems will offer a proof-of-concept demonstration of the FPGA-based accelerated RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) networking solution in Intel booth #839.
