SANBlaze Tests NVMe over FC, RoCE, and TCP at UNH-IOL Plugfest 2019

WEDNESDAY June 19, 2019 09:48 AM Eastern Daylight Time. LITTLETON, Mass. (BUSINESS WIRE)


SANBlaze Technology, Inc. is live this week at the UNH NVMe-oF™ Plugfest successfully testing NVMe targets over the entire set of NVMe transports – NVMe over Fabrics ( NVMe-oF™) including Fibre Channel, RoCE, and TCP/IP connections.

The University of New Hampshire Plugfests are a unique vendor-centric gathering where manufacturers test their equipment’s interoperability with other vendors, ensuring any glitches or software bugs get identified and fixed well before they go in live customer environments.

“This week, SANBlaze has been running NVMe conformance testing with HPE, Mellanox, Western Digital, Lightbits and SolarFlare over TCP and RoCE with excellent results,” said Vince Asbridge, President of SANBlaze. “The UNH Plugfests are key in finding and fixing problems by allowing vendors to verify specification compliance and cross vendor operation, and it's great to see SANBlaze being used as a key validation and emulation tool.”

“NVMe is fast becoming a dominant protocol for the Storage Area Network (SAN),” continued Vince. “The implementation of NVMe over TCP allows NVMe to run on existing network infrastructure and cloud-based storage, which will trigger exponential growth for NVMe as a Fabric based protocol.”

The NVMe-oF™ Plugfest operates this week at the IOL testing labs at UNH, June 17th – 20th. Next week, SANBlaze will participate in the NVMe (PCIe) Plugfest at UNH, June 24th – 27th utilizing its new native NVMe PCIe™ Gen4 test system called the SANBlaze SBExpress-RM4. Whether testing native NVMe (PCI) or testing NVMe over Fibre Channel or Fabrics (RoCE and TCP), SANBlaze is a complete end-to-end test solution for all variations of NVMe SSD drives.
