Toshiba Memory America Highlights Broad Range of SSD Application Solutions at Dell Technologies World

This week at Dell Technologies World 2018, Toshiba Memory America, Inc., the U.S.-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corporation, will be on hand to showcase its lineup of flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) and software to demonstrate server and storage application solutions. Toshiba Memory is once again a Diamond-level conference sponsor, and the two companies have been collaborating on storage solutions for nearly 20 years. Toshiba Memory products can be found in numerous Dell solutions across multiple business lines, including laptop/mobile computing, desktop, data center and enterprise servers/storage.

At Dell Technologies World, Toshiba Memory will highlight how its SSDs are optimizing a wide variety of Dell solutions. In addition, Toshiba Memory will demo the recently announced KumoScale NVMe-oF (NVM Express over Fabrics) shared accelerated storage software and the company's state-of-the-art 96-layer BiCS FLASH 3D memory.

Demonstrations are located in Toshiba Memory's booth #404 of the Dell Technologies Solutions Expo from April 30 through May 2, and include:

Dell systems featuring Toshiba Memory SSDs: Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with vSAN, Dell EMC XC HCI appliances with Nutanix, Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers with SQL Server and HammerDB (both Intel and AMD based), Dell ESI (Extreme Scale Infrastructure) with SQL Server, HammerDB and Cassandra, and Dell EMC S2D (Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct Ready Node) with software defined storage.

Toshiba Memory SSD and Flash products: enterprise SSDs, client SSDs, off module power loss protection technology (boot drive solution), self-encrypting SSDs (SED), and 96-Layer BiCS FLASH 3D Memory.

KumoScale NVMe Over Fabrics shared accelerated storage software: KumoScale enables the use of NVMe-oF to make flash storage accessible over a data center network, providing a simple and flexible abstraction of physical disks into a pool of block storage, all while preserving the high performance of direct-attached NVMe SSDs.

Toshiba Memory can also be found participating in sessions throughout the event. Steve Fingerhut, senior vice president and general manager, SSD and Cloud Software business units, will be introducing Guru Session speaker Andrew McAfee on Tuesday, May 1 at 3 p.m. In addition, Toshiba Memory will have breakout sessions at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, April 30 (Lido 3001A) and Tuesday, May 1 (Lando 4203). These sessions will be delivered jointly by Toshiba Memory's Drew Tipton and Dell's Jeff Armstrong, and will focus on security and self-encrypting drive solutions.

"The digital transformation of the data center requires a modern high-performance infrastructure leveraging flash-based storage," noted Steve Fingerhut. "Toshiba Memory is committed to providing leading technologies at cloud scale. We are proud to be a key SSD supplier to Dell, and excited to demonstrate our broad portfolio across their client, server and storage solutions at Dell Technologies World."
