1 Removing the I/O Bottleneck with Virident PCIe Solid State Storage Solutions Jan Silverman VP Operations

2 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. Why Applications dont perform? Waiting for data… Apps on Multi-core, Multi-Socket Servers limited by slow storage Datasets double every 9 – 12 months 2 Enterprises desperate for Performance Storage Moores Law Not so Much

3 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. Alternative Solutions Add more DRAM Not enough Slots Multicore's eat it up Power Hungry Memory Cache too small Build large Disk Arrays (SAN) Space and Power Hog Doesnt help latency Custom application tuning Its on the List 3 OR

4 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. Put Solid-State Storage in the Application Server 4 Virtual SAN

5 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. Steady, Predictable Performance under various workloads 4x better performance than alternatives 300,000 random IOPS sustained, mixed read-write, 4K Block Size Equivalent of 1000 FC HDDs Performance achieved at full capacity Enterprise-class Data Reliability Advanced multi-level error correction Global wear-leveling Flash-aware Hardware RAID Modular Design for Field Serviceability Flash modules - Stackable, Removable RAID life cycle for module recovery 5 tachIOn Drive Enterprise-Class, Performance and Reliability

6 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. PCIe Gen 3 Future 6 PCIe Cluster with Shared I/O PCIe Gen 3 Hot swapping Peer-to-peer communication Much lower overhead thanks to a new 128/130-bit encoding scheme 1.5 percent overhead compared to 20 percent in Gen 2 Growth in Multi-core CPU chips with rumored PCIe Native Support Intel – Ivy Bridge - EX Core Processors in 2012 AMD – Terramar Core Processors in 2012 Major OEMs designing servers with front-loading PCIe slots Industry standardization around a PCIe SSD Drive form factor

7 ©2011 Virident Systems Inc. The Pieces are There for PCIe Clusters 7 PCIe Optical Cable - 100M PCIe Over Cable Adaptors PCIe Copper Cable - 7M PCIe Ge2 Switches Shared I/O – Looking for Partners

8 ©2010 Virident Systems Inc.. Confidential and Proprietary Virident tachIOn
