Simple Software Change on Same Hardware Drives Massive Block, Object and File Storage Improvement
KIOXIA America, Inc. (formerly Toshiba Memory America, Inc.) today announced that, in recent benchmark performance tests, its KumoScale™ storage software based on NVM Express™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) technology was able to improve performance when compared to Ceph software. Testing conducted in a networked environment that included the NVMe-oF specification and a TCP/IP transport showed that KumoScale software’s read performance is 12x faster than Ceph, and read latency is reduced by 60%. With similar loads, under the same testing conditions, write performance is 60x faster than Ceph while latency is reduced by 98%.
