Toshiba Memory America Showcases Lineup of SSD, Software Solutions Targeted to the Modernization of Data Centers at HPE Discover 2019

Solutions Enable Improved Agility, Greater Efficiencies, Reduced Maintenance, Lower Operational Costs

LAS VEGAS, June 19, 2019 – This week at HPE Discover 2019A new window will open. , Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, will be on hand to showcase the critical role its flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) and software are playing in the modernization of today’s data centers.

Focused on accelerating digital transformation, TMA will highlight its range of products that are optimizing HPE solutions. These products include new classes of SAS SSDs that replace SATA SSDs in most server applications and software that make flash storage accessible via NVMe-oF™ (NVM Express™ over Fabrics) networks. In addition, Toshiba Memory will conduct two breakout sessions focused on its new value SAS and low-power NVMe™ SSD solutions, titled, “Life after SATA – Moving from SATA SSDs to SAS/NVMe in the Data Center.”

Toshiba Memory has been collaborating with HPE to create best-in-class storage solutions for years. Toshiba Memory products can be found in numerous HPE solutions across multiple product lines, including data center and enterprise servers/storage.

Demonstrations will be given in TMA’s booth #214 on the show floor at the Sands Expo Convention Center from June 18 – 20 and include:

  • Welcome to Life After SATA: TMA will highlight its RM5 Value SAS SSD running live in an HP ProLiant DL385 Server. In this demo, TMA will demonstrate the RM5’s significant price/performance value in a real-world workload, showing a clear path away from SATA.
  • KumoScaleTM NVMe-oF Shared Accelerated Storage Software: KumoScale enables the use of NVMe-oF to make flash storage accessible and shared over a data center network. It accomplishes this by providing a simple and flexible abstraction of physical NVMe disks into a pool of block storage, all while preserving the high performance of direct-attached NVMe SSDs. Toshiba Memory recently enhanced KumoScale’s capabilities: the version 3.9 production release includes general availability support for TCP-based networks.
  • Enterprise and Data Center SSDs: Toshiba Memory’s PM5CD5, and CM5 SSDs will be on display.

“We look forward to HPE Discover each year, as it showcases the synergies that exist when companies collaborate to leverage their respective technologies,” noted Alvaro Toledo, senior vice president of SSD marketing and product planning, Toshiba Memory America, Inc. “Together, HPE and TMA provide our customers with the reliable, flexible, low-power, cost-effective storage solutions they need to evolve their data centers and support more digitally-focused strategies.”
