A3CUBE Announces New Storage Interconnect Tool

Company claims its In-Memory Network technology will one day replace Fibre Channel and InfiniBand.

A3CUBE has announced a new line of products that it says will revolutionize storage interconnect systems. The RONNIEE Express interconnect fabric will use A3CUBE's In-Memory Network technology, which "allows direct shared global memory through the fabric for lower latency, simplified scaling to exascale environments, and other performance advantages.

According to the press release, "RONNIEE Express uses PCIe memory access as the communication paradigm for its network protocol, providing direct access and remote storage using "memory windows" with a 64-bit global address space. RONNIEE Express I/O interface eliminates requirements for central switching and discards network stacks in favor of memory-to-memory mapped sockets. A3CUBE argues that the next generation of storage interconnect technology will not be an incremental improvement on established fabric options, but instead a new approach that avoids the bottlenecks inherent to other network technologies."

The three products in the RONNIEE Express line include RONNIEE 2S, RONNIEE RIO, and RONNIEE 3. Each alternative adapts the In-Memory Network technology to a different use case, with graduated pricing for enhanced features and higher performance.
