Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO), semiconductor company for the wireless industry announced that it has unveiled a new storage adapter designed for cloud networks. This constitutes an industry first, as it immediately simplifies how remote storage connects to a given server.

As quoted in the press release:

The solution enables a server to seamlessly connect to a large number of solid-state drives (SSDs) on the network and communicate with these SSDs as if they were local drives. Until now NVMe-oF was only available on servers running recent versions of the Linux operating system, so any server running legacy Linux, Windows or hypervisors like VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V were not supported. The new Glass Creek adapter provides operating system independence by presenting a standard NVMe interface to the host, extending the reach of NVMe over Fabrics to any server.

Powered by Broadcom’s industry-leading Stingray system on chip (SoC) with hardware accelerators for RAID, De-dupe and security, the 50Gbps Glass Creek adapter delivers breakthrough performance of 1 million IOPS in a standard full-height, half-length (FHHL) PCIe card form factor. Using any inbox NVMe driver, this solution allows customers to easily connect remote disaggregated storage like local storage while reaping the benefits of local NVMe performance, fabrics based scalability, and associated cost efficiency in addition to ease of deployment.
