Diablo Technologies Presents Memory Channel Storage at EMC World

Diablo Technologies today announced that it will present on Memory Channel Storage (MCS) at EMC World 2014 in Las Vegas. Experts at Diablo will demonstrate the performance of MCS-based devices for virtualized environments in the VMware Theatre on May 7 at 4:15 p.m. PDT.

According to TechNavio, the global enterprise server virtualization market will grow 32 percent over the period 2010-2014. With the increasing adoption of virtualized computing, the need for higher I/O throughput and capacity has reached an important turning point. Traditionally, storage architectures have been unable to leverage the vast processing capabilities of modern CPUs. As a result, the number of virtual machines (VMs) that can be serviced on a single physical server is limited by the properties of pre-existing storage solutions. By leveraging the parallelism of the memory subsystem, Diablo's MCS technology enables ultra-low response times to VMs while simultaneously servicing heavy I/O workloads.
