Lightbits®, the first software-defined and architected for NVMe/TCP data platform for any cloud, conducted a joint product demonstration with Intel® at the Intel® Innovation event, September 27-28, 2022, in San Jose. The demonstration highlighted Lightbits software-defined, NVMe/TCP storage cluster providing high-performance block storage to compute servers equipped with Intel® IPU E2000, thereby enabling the freeing up of CPU cores to maximize the customer’s revenue without sacrificing application performance. The demo highlighted the increased infrastructure efficiency and flexibility that results from the on-demand provisioning of remote NVMe storage.
Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) need to reduce the CPU resources allocated to storage processing, thereby making more CPU cycles available to run customer applications. Intel Innovation attendees will see how the combined solution of Lightbits software with Intel high-performance technologies dynamically provisions storage, significantly reduces Xeon CPU utilization for infrastructure tasks and delivers a high-performance cloud block storage solution.
In this example, the number of cores was reduced by more than 4X, demonstrating significant CPU utilization savings.
The combined solution of Lightbits software with Intel high-performance technologies delivers an unmatched combination of performance, resiliency, and scalability while lowering TCO. As strategic partners, the companies are helping customers address their complex data center needs enabling CSPs, IT organizations with private clouds, FinTech, and electronic retailers to deliver fast, resilient, and secure services to their clients. The solution can be used as a high-performance data platform for any orchestration environment, such as OpenStack, or to run container-based applications in a Kubernetes environment as well as virtualized applications in a VMware vSphere environment.
