High Performance Storage
E8 Storage has developed a revolutionary storage architecture that meets the demands of mission critical customer applications.
E8 Storage’s patented software architecture was built from the ground up to leverage NVMe, the only protocol designed exclusively for solid state storage.
NVMe™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) certified software, designed for NVMe, end to end
Direct host access to shared storage volumes for low latency
Centralized control ensures data availability and ease of management
Accelerating IBM Spectrum Scale
The pace of business is transforming today’s data centers, with data- and transaction-intensive applications driving the need to extract value from data quickly and efficiently. These applications need high performance and low latency in their compute and storage architectures, and IT departments look to the latest in storage technologies to deliver on those needs.
E8 Storage systems were created with these applications in mind, incorporating NVMe SSDs into an architecture designed specifically to extract the full performance of flash. When paired with a high performance clustered file system such as IBM Spectrum Scale, the result is a file storage architecture that delivers both high performance and massive scalability for data hungry applications.
Best performance and lowest latency Spectrum Scale storage
Easily add E8 Storage to existing Spectrum Scale infrastructure
Shared read / write volumes for parallel processing
Understanding the human genome is one of the foundations for research into cures for disease and saving lives. Researchers across the globe are mapping individual genomes, as well as comparing large groups of genomes as part of their primary and secondary research. Analyzing these datasets can require 500TB or more of storage and take days to complete without access to high performance compute and storage.
E8 Storage tackles this performance challenge head on, seamlessly integrating into high performance clusters built on GPU or FPGA processors and 100Gb Ethernet (RoCE) or Infiniband networks. With proven performance, E8 Storage has demonstrated up to 100X improvement in genome processing time over competing solutions.
“The E8 Storage appliance behaved flawlessly and the integration with InfiniBand was simpler than expected” – Oxford Big Data Institute
Massive acceleration in genome processing time
Scalable to 1000s of GPUs / FPGAs in a high performance cluster
Management APIs for easy integration into automated job scheduling

Financial firms need to read and process data fast in order to make the right business decisions that lead to higher profits. However, data is only relevant for a limited period of time and there is a tight time window for making the right decision. This poses a major problem in the world of high speed analytics and big data management. Not enough data, and/or not enough time to process it can result in a decision that is less accurate and that might even cost money. Investing to speed up networks, servers and storage can pay off handsomely in the form of smarter and quicker decisions.
E8 Storage delivers a highly reliable and scalable storage solution that enables customers to process data at the speed of local SSD. Customers can reduce their storage costs without compromising on their performance requirements, while ensuring that their data analytics needs are met in real-time.
Consolidate storage and eliminate data replication with shared storage
Scalability – easily add storage capacity as the dataset grows
Maintain high performance with very low latency
High reliability with RAID 6 data protection and no single point of failure
