KIOXIA partners Aerospike to enhance database performance


KIOXIA America, Inc. recently announced that it has collaborated with Aerospike to enhance Aerospike’s Community Edition database resulting in a 36% increase in application performance compared with the original software without the enhancement by KIOXIA. Testing was performed with KIOXIA FL6 Series enterprise NVMe Storage Class Memory (SCM) SSDs with a software enhancement developed by KIOXIA.

The Aerospike database is optimized to run on flash and SSD devices and is capable of providing high throughput and low latency on flash.

“At Aerospike, we appreciate industry collaboration efforts with companies such as KIOXIA to continually improve our products,” noted Aerospike’s Paul Jensen, vice president of Technology and Infrastructure Partners. “In working with KIOXIA and testing the application software patch, we achieved a notable improvement in application performance in our Community Edition database.”

Featuring the KIOXIA SCM solution, XL-FLASH, the PCIe 4.0 and NVMe 1.4 compliant KIOXIA FL6 Series SSDs bridge the gap between DRAM and TLC-based drives, making them well-suited to latency sensitive use cases such as caching layer, tiering and write logging. Currently, in mass production, dual-port FL6 drives deliver high endurance (60 DWPD) and are available in capacities up to 3,200 gigabytes.

“KIOXIA has developed the broadest SSD product portfolio for the data center, and we are committed to creating innovative storage solutions that improve storage latency and application performance,” said Neville Ichhaporia, vice president of SSD marketing and product management, KIOXIA America, Inc. “By collaborating closely with Aerospike, KIOXIA has not only developed a unique and differentiated SSD solution but has also developed and contributed software innovations that unlock substantial application performance improvement on our low latency FL6 Series SCM SSDs.”

Detailed Aerospike testing results will be presented during the KIOXIA keynote address, and a demonstration will be at the KIOXIA booth at next month’s Flash Memory Summit
