Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) has rolled out an all-flash big data analytics platform designed to enable real-time or streaming of data in the manufacturing, medical, finance and security markets.
Called Flashmatrix, the technology integrates compute, storage and network elements in an architecture of NAND flash memory arranged in a matrix. The platform enables multiple data sets to be accessed in parallel and scaled linearly. The NAND flash memory is shared by every CPU, allowing for flexibility and high performance, TAEC says.
“Big data processing can face multiple problems in scaling, latency and power as the customer demands increase,” says Ralph Schmitt, executive of system development at TAEC. “Flashmatrix addresses each of those issues to create a system that is a true solution for analytic processing by offering low power consumption, parallel processing to reduce system latency, card-level scaling and a large, non-volatile memory space shared by all CPUs.”
TAEC will showcase Flashmatrix at the 2016 Flash Memory Summit, taking place this week in Santa Clara, California.
