PMC Flashtec + Memblaze PBlaze 4 = NVM Express SSD Awesomeness!
Author: Stephen Bates (@stepbates)
In mid-May I headed to Beijing to attend Memblaze’s launch of their new Solid State Drives (SSDs) based on the PMC Flashtec™ controller. I was very happy to make the trip because we have worked closely with Memblaze over the past 18 months as they transferred their SSDs from the FPGA-based PBlaze3 to the PMC Flashtec based PBlaze4. There has been a lot of interest within China around these Memblaze SSDs and NVM Express™ (NVMe™), and I wanted to go there and see for myself.
