Quantum F-Series line expands with entry-level NVMe flash

Quantum Corp. expanded its F-Series line of NVMe flash arrays this week with an entry-level option for businesses that maintain large media and entertainment files.

The F-1000 is the second array in the Quantum F-Series product family, following the 2019 launch of its F-2000 NAS. The F-Series servers run Quantum StorNext file system software in a scale-out file storage cluster for unstructured data.

For the F-1000, Quantum said it reworked commodity server hardware to create a lower-cost option, reducing the amount of memory needed to compute RAID. The 1U server contains a single controller and supports up to 10 NVMe SSDs, with RAID 10. By comparison, the 2U F-2000 has two controllers and takes 24 dual-ported NVMe SSDs.

Quantum F-1000 is offered in two capacity models: 39 TB and 77 TB, with 32G Fibre Channel and 100 Gigabit Ethernet via iSCSI extensions for remote direct memory access

“This innovation stems directly from Quantum’s strategy of focusing on video data. They have tailored a cost-optimized offering for a specific solution, rather than trying to sell you a general-purpose NVMe storage server,” as other storage vendors have done, said Scott Sinclair, a storage analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

Quantum F-Series takes software-defined approach

Nonvolatile flash memory (NVMe) transmits data across PCI Express lanes instead hopping of between network components. NVMe provides faster data access and high parallelization, making it attractive for high-resolution video rendering and streaming media. NVMe flash media also comes with premium pricing, putting it beyond the reach of many organizations.

The Quantum F-Series marks the NAS vendor’s intention to adopt a software-defined storage approach, said Eric Bassier, a Quantum senior director of technical marketing. Quantum F-Series customers include major movie studios, government agencies and private corporations that need to capture, edit and store data for visual effects and computer-generated imagery.

Quantum targets the F-1000 for IT teams that need NVMe flash performance, but with moderate density. “It’s pretty cool to be able to port the same [StorNext] software to bring F-1000 server to market so quickly” after its debut in April, Bassier said.

Storage for unstructured data still growing

Organizations are dealing with a surge in newly created data, much of it unstructured data. Media content, particularly image and video, is a prime contributor. According to an ESG report on storage trends, nearly one-quarter of organizations cite digital media as a top driver of projected on-premises storage growth over the next several years.

“The idea that the data center is dying because of the cloud is not the case,” Sinclair said.

Quantum bills the F-1000 as a lower-cost alternative for dense media. It did not disclose pricing, but Bassier said Quantum F-1000 NVMe storage will cost roughly the same as its hybrid SAS arrays.

“We believe SAS SSDs are going to become obsolete rather quickly,” Bassier said.

In addition to StorNext-powered storage, Quantum sells ActiveScale object storage, DXi backup appliances, R-Series storage for in-vehicle storage, VS-Series video surveillance systems and Scalar tape storage systems.

The F-1000 is Quantum’s first product launch since resolving a dispute with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Quantum in December agreed to a $1 million settlement related to a series of earnings misstatements dating to February 2018. The SEC found that former Quantum executives booked revenue from multiyear contracts, but failed to disclose the revenue in financial reports. Quantum had previously agreed to pay $8 million to settle shareholder lawsuits arising from the probe.

Amazon buys NVMe startup E8 Storage to boost public cloud

Another NVMe flash startup has been acquired — this time by a public cloud storage giant.

Amazon confirmed it will acquire E8 Storage and deploy its rack-scale flash storage in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud.

Amazon said the transaction includes “some assets” that include hiring the E8 Storage team. E8 Storage CEO Zivan Ori reportedly will join Amazon in an unspecified executive capacity.

Israeli news outlet Globes first reported the story, citing unnamed sources who estimated Amazon will pay between $50 million and $60 million to acquire E8 Storage. A separate report by Reuters said the purchase price is much less, citing another source with knowledge of the deal. Amazon did not publicly disclose the acquisition price.

Amazon’s move comes two weeks after its public cloud rival Google bought file storage software startup Elastifile and nearly one month after holding company StorCentric acquired NVMe array hopeful Vexata.

The Amazon-E8 Storage marriage signals growing interest in NVMe flash. There is widespread industry belief that the NVMe protocol will eventually replace traditional SCSI-based storage. SCSI traffic makes several network hops along the network. By contrast, NVMe allows applications to talk directly to storage across multilane PCIe devices.

For Amazon, the deal highlights the competition it faces from enterprises seeking an AWS-like alternative that costs less than AWS and is managed on premises. It will be worth watching to see if Amazon integrates E8 Storage gear with AWS Nitro compute instances, which use NVMe as the underlying media with Elastic Block Store.

By acquiring E8 Storage, Amazon gains a storage operating system optimized for NVMe flash, said Eric Burgener, a research vice president of storage at analyst firm IDC.

“E8 has an NVMe-over-TCP implementation integrated in its software. It’s not that Amazon couldn’t have built that, but E8 already built it and it works. TCP is clearly the future of NVMe-over-fabrics-attached storage. That’s where the volume is going to be,” Burgener said.

Ori and Alex Friedman founded E8 Storage in 2014. Both previously had worked in management positions at IBM Storage. Friedman was E8’s vice president of R&D. E8 Storage emerged from stealth in 2016, with a dense block-based array that combines 24 NVMe SSDs in a 2U standard form factor.

The E8 Storage software targets analytics and similarly data-intensive workloads that require extreme performance and ultralow latency. E8 received more than $18 million in total funding, including a $12 million Series B round in 2016.

In addition to E8 arrays, customers have also been able to buy E8 Storage software on reference architecture with servers by Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Lenovo. The vendor this year added parallel file storage to target high-performance computing.

E8 Storage was an early entrant in end-to-end NVMe flash. The E8 architecture is based on industry-standard TCP over IP. Other NVMe startups include Apeiron Data, Excelero and Pavilion Data Systems.

Burgener said he wouldn’t be surprised to see more consolidation in NVMe storage. After ceding ground early, Burgener said legacy storage vendors have aggressively pushed into NVMe.

“Most of the majors have gotten their marketing acts together around selling NVMe for mixed workload consolidation, but they also want to go after the same kind of dedicated workloads” first targeted by NVMe startups, Burgener said.
