Dan Frith got a look at Excelero’s NVMesh at Storage Field Day last week. NVMesh is a virtual SAN specifically designed for the particular capabilities of NMVe drives. Dan was impressed by the speeds attainable by the solution, which scale almost linearly as additional drives are added. More impressively, this is done with no load on the target CPU, with data being interacted directly with drives via RDDA. He isn’t quite as sure if it’s ready for mass adoption yet, Excelero isn’t ready to wrap in a bunch of data services in version 1.1. But if speed is your primary concern, Dan thinks Excelero has a compelling offering.
