Attala Systems and Microsemi Collaborate to Help Customers Automate Their NVMe Storage Infrastructure

“By working with Microsemi, we have been able to automate the enclosure management functions and switching infrastructure to significantly automate system management tasks.” – Taufik Ma, co-founder, Attala Systems

Attala Systems, a San Jose technology company that is revolutionizing storage for the cloud and real-time analytic applications, and Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, have teamed to develop the industry’s first fully-automated NVMe-over-fabrics platform that is compliant with the DMTF Redfish and SNIA Swordfish™ specification. The platform utilizes Attala’s FPGA-based adaptable storage fabric and Microsemi’s Switchtec PCIe storage switches, integrated programmable processor and enclosure management software. The result is a platform that is dynamically responsive to changes in customer environments without the significant operational expense (OpEx) demands historically required to manage such a platform.

“Our focus from day one has been to design and building a cloud-optimized storage infrastructure that minimizes the amount of management overhead required to operate in cloud environments,” said Taufik Ma, co-founder at Attala Systems. “By working with Microsemi, we have been able to automate the enclosure management functions and switching infrastructure to significantly automate system management tasks. The Attala Systems composable storage infrastructure architecture is the realization of that need.”

Collaborating closely with Microsemi, Attala Systems has created a composable, scale-out storage platform that is orchestrated via the industry standard DMTF Redfish and SNIA Swordfish™ specifications. These specifications help to provide a unified approach for the management of storage and servers in hyperscale and cloud infrastructure environments, making it easier for IT administrators to integrate scalable solutions into their data centers and simplifying the way storage can be allocated, monitored and managed.

“Microsemi is proud to work with Attala Systems to reach this milestone,” said Derek Dicker, vice president and business unit manager for performance storage at Microsemi. “Because of their scale,…
