SupremeRAID™ for NVMe RAID

Traditional RAID throttles performance, leaving little to no ROI on investment in NVMe SSDs — but GPU-accelerated SupremeRAID™ maximizes the performance and usable capacity of NVMe SSDs. Scroll down to learn more.

What is NVMe RAID?

NVMe RAID, or Non-Volatile Memory Express Redundant Array of Independent Disks, is a technology that allows multiple NVMe solid-state drives (SSDs) to be combined into a single logical unit for enhanced performance, capacity, or both. NVMe provides significantly faster data transfer speeds than traditional storage interfaces like SATA (Serial ATA). By leveraging NVMe SSDs in a RAID configuration, users can achieve even greater performance and reliability.

NVMe RAID is particularly beneficial in high-performance computing environments, such as data centers, where fast and reliable storage is crucial for demanding workloads like data analytics, virtualization, and database management.

Why NVMe RAID Matters

NVMe SSDs are used everywhere:
Think cloud, core, and edge infrastructure; business and consumer applications.

NVMe SSDs continue to improve:
Speeds double with each new generation; capacity of 30TB now, and 60TB coming soon.

SSDs wear down and some fail during use:
Flash memory endurance is limited; electronics can fail without warning.

Servers and workstations are getting denser:
Systems are available with 100+ CPU and 10,000+ GPU cores; 1U servers now support up to 32 SSDs.

(capacity of 1 PB now and 2 PB soon)

Benefits of NVMe RAID

Enhanced Performance
NVMe SSDs already provide significantly faster data transfer speeds than traditional SATA SSDs. By combining multiple NVMe SSDs in a RAID configuration, users can further boost performance, achieving even higher throughput and lower latency. This is particularly important for high-speed data processing applications like real-time analytics, video editing, and high-performance computing.

Increased Capacity
RAID allows multiple drives to be combined into a single logical unit, providing greater storage capacity than a single drive alone. This is essential for applications with large data storage requirements, such as high-resolution media production, big data analytics, and cloud storage services.

Improved Redundancy and Data Protection
Depending on the RAID level used, NVMe RAID can offer redundancy and data protection features that safeguard against drive failures and data loss. RAID levels like RAID 1 (mirroring) and RAID 10 (striping and mirroring) duplicate data across multiple drives, ensuring that data remains accessible even if one or more drives fail.

Scalability
NVMe RAID systems can be easily scaled by adding additional drives to the array as storage needs grow. This scalability allows organizations to adapt to changing storage requirements without needing to overhaul their entire storage infrastructure.

Optimized for Modern Workloads
Many modern applications and workloads, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and real-time processing, require high-performance storage solutions to deliver optimal performance. NVMe RAID provides the speed and efficiency needed to support these demanding workloads, enabling organizations to remain competitive in today’s fast-paced digital landscape.

Why SupremeRAID™ for NVMe RAID?

SupremeRAID vs traditional RAID comparison gif

Traditional RAID throttles performance, leaving little to no ROI on investment in NVMe SSDs.

NVMe storage performance is evolving too fast to be fully utilized by existing hardware RAID storage architectures, and software-based RAID competes with other applications for CPU power, slowing the whole system down. Basically, advances in NVMe technology are moving so fast that ASIC-based or software-based RAID can’t deliver the full performance capability of the SSDs. Hardware RAID limits performance by nearly 50% due to lane limits, and software RAID competes with the OS, consuming 30-40% of CPU.

GPU-accelerated SupremeRAID™ maximizes the performance and usable capacity of NVMe SSDs.

SupremeRAID™ is the perfect RAID solution for NVMe servers. It’s a software-defined solution on a GPU, so data doesn’t travel through the card. By offloading RAID operations to a GPU, SupremeRAID™ outperforms traditional hardware and software RAID while also providing all levels of RAID protection across NVMe-oF; plus SupremeRAID™ can act as either an NVMe-oF Target or NVMe-oF Initiator.
