NeuroBlade Selects KIOXIA NVMe™ SSDs as Part of Analytics Acceleration Solution

KIOXIA to provide FL6 Series low-latency SSDs that will help support NeuroBlade’s next-generation data acceleration  

Palo Alto, Calif. | October 18th, 2022 | – NeuroBlade, building the next generation of data analytics acceleration solutions, announced that it has selected KIOXIA America, Inc., the US-based subsidiary of the leading worldwide supplier of flash memory and SSDs, as a high-end NVMe storage collaborator for the NeuroBlade Hardware Enhanced Query System (HEQS). 

NeuroBlade is taking an industry-first approach to data acceleration for modern cloud-based data warehouses and data lakes. Currently, cloud-based architecture disaggregates compute and storage, which has led to performance inefficiencies in data analytics, especially as processing power of CPUs has not kept up with data growth. NeuroBlade changes this. It adds an acceleration layer between compute and storage that increases performance 10-100x when querying large datasets. This approach, hypercompute for analytics, is the direction the industry is going to continue to improve performance in the face of the relentless increase in data and analytics user demands. The NeuroBlade HEQS solution filters and reduces network traffic and data movement taking petabytes of data down to megabytes. Its solution accelerates memory, compute, and storage to achieve processing at the speed of data streaming, all while slashing IT costs by 90 percent. 

The NeuroBlade HEQS solution provides supreme performance while using standard NVMe SSDs. Combined with the features of the KIOXIA FL6 Series enterprise NVMe Storage Class Memory (SCM) SSDs, NeuroBlade HEQS unlocks an even greater performance matrix. The low-latency capabilities of the FL6 deliver excellent system performance for applications where response time is critical. The superior performance provided by the FL6 SSDs ensures that NeuroBlade solutions can be best in class to analyze data more efficiently for competitive advantage. 

The FL6 Series bridges the performance gap between DRAM and NAND flash memory. It delivers 60 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day) endurance and performance of up to 1.5m random read IOPS and 400K random write IOPS, with 29 μs read latency, and 8 μs write latency, respectively1

“KIOXIA FL6 SSDs enable NeuroBlade HEQS to accelerate insights from data analytics,” said Eliad Hillel, CTO, and co-founder of NeuroBlade. “For NeuroBlade, it is vital that our customers to be free to leverage the storage of their choice based on their performance requirements. This often requires streaming data at the line rate as fast as possible, and the FL6 Series delivers. At the same time, it brings enterprise-level features such as native dual-port access for high-availability and resiliency, as well as SED and FIPS level 140-2 security options. This is an exciting time for NeuroBlade, and we couldn’t be more honored to collaborate with KIOXIA. The FL6 provides superior performance and reliable QoS in low queue depth, which is an obvious choice for real-world latency-sensitive applications.”  

“We welcome the collaboration with NeuroBlade and their efforts to solve the data analysis performance gap. KIOXIA’s FL6 SSDs are a good fit for the application layer where server caching and write logging for enterprise and large data centers are critical,” said Neville Ichhaporia, vice president of SSD marketing and product management, KIOXIA America, Inc.. “We are pleased to work with NeuroBlade and help deliver an innovative solution that accelerates widely used database applications.”
