Lightbits Labs Launches Industry’s First NVMe/TCP Clustered Storage Solution11.12.2019 16:00:00 EETPress release

Lightbits Labs, the leader in NVMe™ over TCP (NVMe/TCP) software-defined disaggregated storage, today has advanced its software solution, LightOS, to deliver the first NVMe/TCP clustered storage solution. With more companies moving away from direct attached storage (DAS), and with storage requirements typically growing far faster than compute requirements, both public-cloud providers and private-cloud builders are looking for ways to separate storage and compute so each can scale separately. One of the limiting factors to scaling disaggregated storage, however, is the need for high availability across clusters of storage and compute. Lightbits LightOS delivers the availability, flexibility and efficiency of hyperscale cloud infrastructure to on-premise data centers. LightOS is now the first NVMe/TCP storage solution that protects against data loss and avoids service interruptions at scale. In the presence of server, storage, or network failures, LightOS maximizes operational efficiency
