NVMe is a communications interface/protocol developed specially for SSDs and it is specifically to designed to take advantage of the unique properties of pipeline-rich, random access, memory-based storage. XENON has created a unique portfolio of NVMe storage solutions that offer excellent performance and Latency as well as provide unmatched hot-plug capability. The primary benefit of NVMe with PCI-E-based SSDs are improved scalability and latency, lower power consumption and low cost, in comparison to SAS-based or SATA-based SSDs, through the streamlining of the I/O stack.
All-Flash NVMe storage solutions
In addition, XENON offers a comprehensive portfolio of All-Flash NVMe storage solutions that support the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5- 2600 v4 product family. The portfolio provides three fundamental design choices for customers, Throughput/IOPs optimized (1U 10 NVMe); Balanced Throughput and Capacity (2U 24 NVMe); and Capacity Optimized (2U 48 NVMe), part of Supermicro’s Simply Double family providing double the physical storage capacity of traditional form factors.
XENON NVMe storage solutions are targeted at:
- High Performance Computing
- High Frequency Trading
- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
- In Cloud Environments
- Oil & Gas
- SQL Database
- Aerospace & Automobile Design
- 3D Modelling & Graphical Design
- High Security Encryption Datacenter
- Cluster & Supercomputer applications
Oil & Gas
XENON with Intel® helped Oil Search Dig Deeper Into Sub-Surface Oil and Gas Analysis by delivering a NVMe-based Intel® SSD DC P3700 Series and new Intel® Cache Acceleration Software for Windows* Workstations (Intel® CAS-W) technology for faster rendering and transmission of modelling data.
Intel® CAS-W offers an innovative solution to this challenge by using an Intel® SSD for data centers as a cache for data that is frequently accessed. By storing a copy of this “hot” data in the SSD, server applications can access the data and run faster. Intel® CAS-W offers up to 12 times more performance on transactional database processing and up to 36 times faster processing of I/O intensive virtualised workloads.

The University Queensland selects XENON for first of its kind FlashLite computer to enable big data research and innovation. Led by Professor David Abramson, designer of FlashLite and Director of the University of Queensland’s Research Computing Centre, the computer includes three main innovations: high speed flash memory (instead of spinning disk), large amounts of high-speed main memory and software shared memory.
