Kazan Networks has developed the industry’s first stand-alone NVMe-oF™ bridge adapter, codenamed “Magma”. This fully standard-compliant, self-contained bridge solution offers plug-and-play connectivity between an NVMe-oF Fabric™ (Ethernet) and NVMe™ SSDs (with fanout via a PCIe switch). Unlike other RNIC-based solutions, this high-performance bridge does not require an expensive and power-hungry embedded processor running a driver. It is the only such solution supporting both RoCE (v1,v2) and iWARP protocol support, with simultaneous, interleaved traffic from heterogenous initiators. A single Magma is capable of 2.6M IOPS (4kB) and over 10GB/s of bandwidth; Magma has been proven to scale to over 15M IOPS per 2U/24SSD shelf when installing up to 6 per system.
