Plexistor software turns off–the–shelf servers into efficient hyper–performing compute, network, and storage infrastructures. The Plexistor full–stack solution delivers application–centric infrastructure that can reduce total cost of ownership by 5x with applications like Cassandra* and MongoDB.
The Plexistor architecture can use a variety of storage and memory devices like volatile DRAM, as well as nonvolatile RAM such as NVDIMM–N and the recently announced Intel® and Micron 3D XPoint™ memory device. SDM also incorporates traditional storage media such as Flash* and high–capacity spinning disk drives into a single unified persistent high–capacity converged hierarchy.
Plexistor can be used in Amazon AWS as well as on premise, running on the Linux* OS or on Docker containers. An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is available on the Amazon marketplace free of charge. Plexistor SDM is available for download from the Plexistor website. Full support is available at http://www.plexistor.com/support/.
Plexistor's software–defined memory (SDM) accelerates performance for MongoDB by liberating it from the overhead of the existing storage stack and the constraints of decades–old conventional storage architectures that are overdue to be replaced.Latency—Going beyond Throughput | January 17, 2016
3D XPoint™ from Intel and Micron will revolutionize computer architecture as we know it. Bridging the gap between memory and storage, this new technology delivers near–memory speed but, more importantly, ultra–low latency.Software–Defined Memory: Defined | December 13, 2015
Software–defined memory is a game–changing architecture. Converging memory and storage can guarantee data safety of in–memory applications and enable them to run large working sets at lower costs.
