Toshiba Memory releases TCP Transport support for KumoScale software

Toshiba Memory Europe has announced that its KumoScale shared accelerated storage software can now support TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) transport in its 3.9 production release.

According to Toshiba, by leveraging TCP, the most widely-used networking protocol used in today’s enterprise and cloud data centres, KumoScale software will now enable NVM Express over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) to be deployed over existing Ethernet networks, opening up opportunities for broader NVMe-oF deployment and adoption.

In addition to TCP networks, KumoScale supports RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) version 2 networks.

KumoScale shared accelerated storage software makes flash storage accessible over a data centre network. It addresses the inefficiencies associated with direct-attached storage (DAS) architectures by disaggregating the high-performance NVMe SSDs from compute nodes and making them shared and available across a network infrastructure as network-attached resources.

Pooling these resources provides the ability to provision the right amount of storage or compute for each application workload, on each server within the data center, all while preserving the high-performance and low-latency benefits of NVMe SSDs. By delivering disaggregated, highly-flexible networked block storage to compute nodes, KumoScale allows data centers to run more efficiently.
