100Gbit/s Mangstor array blows interconnect cobwebs right away
Mangstor's MX-Series drives enter the vSphere to soup up VM performance
Mangstor has launched a faster NVMe over fabrics storage array – the NX6325 – based on an HPE ProLiant DL380 2U server platform.
It builds on the existing NX6320 by adding optimised support for 100Gbit/s network speeds. Customers requiring 40Gbit/s Ethernet or 56Gbit/s InfiniBand can use either the NX6320 or NX6325 storage array platforms, as features and performance are equivalent.
The NX6325 provides:
- Mellanox ConnectX-4 NICs
- Multiple InfiniBand and Ethernet ports with interconnect speeds of up to 100Gbit/s
- Up to 3 million IOPS
- Sequential read bandwidth of 12GB/sec
- Sequential write bandwidth of 9GB/sec
Mangstor is a member of the HPE Partner Ready for OEM program.
Its MX-Series NVMe SSDs are now certified on vSphere 6.0. Mangstor says it validated its ESX driver stack on MX6300 2.7TB and 5.4TB capacity models through the VMware I/O Vendor Partner program that enables vendor device drivers to be released independently of VMware product releases.
