Storage Systems Solutions for Data Center
For the ultimate in data center storage systems flexibility, Microsemi’s solutions portfolio delivers a wide range of media connectivity platforms, such as 12G SAS, multilink SAS for high density and large topology storage systems; PCIe and NVMe for low latency NVMe storage systems; as well as Ethernet for key/value Kinetic or object-based storage systems.
Microsemi scales the performance storage tier with the industry’s first PCIe storage switches and fastest SSD controllers, enabling end-to-end, reliable PCIe deployment in hyperscale and enterprise data centers.
Systems connecting a pool of these high-performance, low-latency drives need a new class of PCIe switching solutions with robust storage features. Microsemi’s Switchtec PCIe Storage Switches enable PCIe SSD-based systems to scale, with the resiliency, programmability and advanced diagnostics needed for mass deployment. Together, Microsemi’s Switchtec and Flashtec products provide an end-to-end solution to reliably scale the next-generation performance tier of storage.
Microsemi's Flashtec and Switchtec storage solutions are deployed to enterprise storage and server developers who manufacture standards-based solutions with PCIe Gen 3 interfaces. These Flash solutions are then used in enterprise-class centralized storage systems, server caching applications, and other systems requiring high-performance storage devices. End users deploy these PCIe Flash-based systems in their data centers for cloud computing and business-critical applications, such as online transaction processing, financial data processing, database mining and any other applications that demand high performance.
Microsemi is the industry leader in NVMe, SAS and Fibre Channel Storage System solutions. Our highly integrated system-on-chip and firmware solutions enable storage equipment to deliver the highest performance with the lowest power.
High-performance solid state drives (SSDs) can deliver up to 100 times more I/Os per second (IOPS) than traditional hard drive disks (HDDs), creating the need for a new class of storage controller. Microsemi's 12Gb/s SAS controllers are optimized for performance to solve this need and release the full potential of SSDs.
Promising improved system efficiencies and total cost of ownership (TCO), key/value Kinetic or object-oriented storage architecture offers a scalable, flexible data storage alternative for static, unstructured data. With nearly 80% of new cloud applications predicted to be big data intensive, key/value object-based storage has rapidly become the basis for hybrid cloud storage-as-a-service solutions, as well as on-premise settings facing massive unstructured data volumes.
