KIOXIA Unlocks Data Potential From the Edge to the Cloud to AI; Highlights Flash Storage Breakthroughs at HPE Discover 2024

Demonstrations, Speaking Sessions Focus on Latest SSD Innovations; Collaboration with HPE on Spaceborne Computer-2 Project

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 13, 2024 – Next week at HPE® Discover 2024, KIOXIA, the inventor of NAND flash memory, will be on hand to highlight the critical role its broad lineup of next-gen solid state drives (SSDs) is playing in the modernization of today’s data centers, even in space.

KIOXIA has been collaborating with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to create innovative storage solutions for years. KIOXIA storage solutions can be found optimizing HPE solutions across multiple product lines, from the edge to the cloud to Artificial Intelligence (AI) computing.

“We eagerly anticipate HPE Discover each year, as it highlights the powerful synergies created when companies collaborate to leverage their cutting-edge technologies,” noted Neville Ichhaporia, senior vice president and general manager of the KIOXIA SSD Business Unit. “This year, KIOXIA and HPE are showcasing how our joint innovations in PCIe® Gen 5, EDSFF SSDs, and 24G SAS can provide customers with reliable, high-performance, sustainable storage solutions. Together, we enable data center evolution and support more digitally-focused strategies, driving compute and storage modernization from the edge to the cloud to AI.”

Product and technology demonstrations will be given in the KIOXIA booth #2420 on the show floor at the Venetian® Conference and Expo Center in Las Vegas from June 17 – 20.

Live booth demonstrations (on HPE ProLiant/Alletra®  platforms) include:

  • KIOXIA CM7 Series Enterprise E3.S NVMeTM SSDs running Milvus® Vector Database for AI workloads
  • KIOXIA RM7 Series Value SAS SSDs running MinIO® scale out storage workload
  • KIOXIA CD8P Series Data Center E3.S SSDs running deep learning I/O benchmark  for AI
  • KIOXIA PM7 Series Enterprise SAS SSDs running SUSE® Harvester Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Other demonstrations include:

  • Spaceborne Computer-2 program: Demonstrating how HPE and KIOXIA are working together on the HPE Spaceborne Computer-2 initiative in the International Space Station (ISS)
  • Value SAS SSDs: Featuring their price/performance value in a real-world workload – and showing a clear path away from aging SATA technology
  • EDSFF E3: Specifications were developed by leading companies that include HPE and KIOXIA to optimize SSD designs for capacity, power, performance, and thermal/cooling – and to replace 2.5-inch form factor¹ SSDs

KIOXIA will participate in several speaking sessions and panel discussions that focus on its new products and its longstanding collaboration with HPE, including:

  • Breakout Session: “HPE and KIOXIA: Storage Solutions for AI, Cloud and Space”
    Date: June 18 at 4pm (BB7065) and June 19 at 3pm (BB7066)
    Description: This session looks at the next frontier of computing, with a special focus on managing workloads and data from the cloud to the edge - even to the edge of space. HPE’s Dr. Mark Fernandez will detail HPE’s collaboration with KIOXIA on the latest Spaceborne-2 initiative with the International Space Station (ISS). Back on Earth, HPE and KIOXIA are collaborating on storage solutions that enable next-gen workloads, including vector databases for RAG AI.
  • Expo Hall AI Theater Presentation: “KIOXIA and HPE: Innovation from the Data Center to Space”
    Date: June 19 at 11am (T7067)
    Description: HPE’s Dr. Mark Fernandez will explain how HPE, KIOXIA and NASA are working together on the Spaceborne Computer-2 initiative, which utilizes high performance computing to speed research at the ISS. Learn how KIOXIA SSDs are playing a role in Spaceborne, and also how KIOXIA storage solutions are enabling the next phase of digital transformation with HPE.
