Breaking the Cloud “I/O Barrier”

Mellanox and LINBIT just announced a collaboration with Logicworks.

Together, the companies are working to develop a high-performance replication system for Logicworks’ customers. LINBIT DRBD open source technology combined with the InfiniBand fabric from Mellanox will lower costs and make it possible to achieve unprecedented levels of input/output (I/O) performance, leading to improved cloud-based storage management and disaster recovery capabilities. The adoption of InfiniBand for the cloud-based system will provide Logicworks’ customers with the unparalleled performance that is critical for hosting latency sensitive applications.

“By utilizing both LINBIT’s DRBD technology and Mellanox’s InfiniBand interconnects, Logicworks’ customers will be able to take their cloud-based applications to the next level,” said Bart Grantham, R&D vice president, Logicworks. “We are eager to build on our relationship with LINBIT and excited to be among the first in the industry to offer such a solution to our customers.”
