The Flash Memory Summit Awards serve as a platform for celebrating innovation and excellence within the industry, offering a platform for companies to showcase their cutting-edge products and solutions. Xinnor’s achievement in winning this award reflects its commitment to pushing the boundaries of technological advancement and industry leadership.

The winning project, a result of the collaboration between Xinnor and Western Digital, ingeniously combines Xinnor’s xiRAID software with Western Digital’s OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform. Built on NVMe-oF and Composable Disaggregated Infrastructure (CDI) technologies, the solution offers a flexible and cost-effective storage model that empowers organizations to optimize their storage infrastructure and accelerate time-to-market for new application services. The joint solution employs the BeeGFS parallel file system, known for its exceptional performance and user-friendly interface.

“In high-performance computing (HPC) environments, the ultimate solution is created by designing a well-balanced storage system in a way that accommodates both large blocks of data for big data analytics, along with many small files for Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads without performance degradation,” said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc. “We are proud to recognize the collaboration between Western Digital’s OpenFlex Data24 NVMe-oF Storage Platform, providing storage disaggregation from compute which can deliver the lowest end-to-end latency to shared storage and Xinnor’s xiRAID for a high-performance RAID protection of NVMe and SAS/SATA SSD’s. This creates a vertically integrated high performance storage solution”.

“We are excited and honored to win this prestigious award. It is a further recognition of the value Xinnor’s xiRAID provides to customers who need to protect not only local drives, but also the one connected via the network,” said Davide Villa, Chief Revenue Officer at Xinnor. “Our collaboration with Western Digital and Thinkparq, the company behind BeeGFS, is a great example how we complement each other’s technology to provide innovative storage solutions to our customers”.
