SANBlaze Demonstrates NVMe Target Emulation over RoCE and Fibre Channel at UNH Plug Fest

SANBlaze Technology, Inc. announced today that it successfully demonstrated NVMe target emulation over RoCE and Fibre Channel at the University of New Hampshire’s first ever plug fest for NVMe-oF™ (NVMe over Fabrics).

The NVMe-oF Plug Fest was held this week, June 18-22 2018, at the UNH-IOL facility in Durham, NH USA. Attendees were able to see real-world testing of NVMe over RoCE and NVMe over Fibre Channel on both initiators and targets using SANBlaze’s testing platform.

"SANBlaze tools give users the ability to test NVMe over the full range of transport options, from NVMe over Fibre Channel, to NVMe over Ethernet with RDMA based on both RoCE and iWARP,” said Vince Asbridge, President of SANBlaze Technology. “The SANBlaze emulation system for NVMe will validate the capability of a SAN or network infrastructure to carry NVMe traffic alongside FCP and Ethernet traffic, and verify the compatibility of NVMe with your existing equipment.”

The SANBlaze NVMe platform not only helps customers test NVMe in their current environment, but also helps in the selection of which protocol or transport to choose.

“Questions like ‘Should I run NVMe on Fibre Channel or 25/50/100G Ethernet?’, ‘How will my network hardware handle routing RoCE and iWARP traffic?’ and ‘How will my network scale to hundreds of NVMe targets?’ can be difficult to answer without the SANBlaze emulation system, which can emulate all these scenarios before needing to commit to a transport or vendor,” said Vince Asbridge. “Our work with UNH at the plug fest validates that the SANBlaze emulation system accurately represents actual NVMe targets on all available transports."

Customers agree. Barry Maskas, Storage Networks Hewlett Packard Enterprise technical consultant, deploys SANBlaze VirtuaLUN products in his development lab, at trade shows, and at plug fests to jumpstart end-to-end integration of new technologies.

“I use the SANBlaze VirtuaLUN for conformance, interoperability, and performance validations with FC and FC-NVMe, iSCSI, and NVMe-oF RDMA RoCE V1 and V2, because of early availability, ease of use, and outstanding support,” Barry Maskas said. “This week at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), VirtuaLUN FC-NVMe and NVMe-oF RoCE RDMA initiators and targets enabled the successful testing of end-to-end interoperability and conformance of NVMe-oF technologies.”

DevOps has long focused on reinventing the SDLC (e.g. with CI/CD, ARA, pipeline automation etc.), while reinvention of IT Ops has lagged. However, new approaches like Site Reliability Engineering, Observability, Containerization, Operations Analytics, and ML/AI are driving a resurgence of IT Ops. In this session our expert panel will focus on how these new ideas are [putting the Ops back in DevOps orbringing modern IT Ops to DevOps].

Keeping an application running at scale can be a daunting task. When do you need to add more capacity? Larger databases? Additional servers? These questions get harder as the complexity of your application grows. Microservice based architectures and cloud-based dynamic infrastructures are technologies that help you keep your application running with high availability, even during times of extreme scaling. But real cloud success, at scale, requires much more than a basic lift-and-shift migrati...

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
