US based SANBlaze Technology, one of the leading worldwide providers of advanced storage test and validation technologies, today announced the expansion of its industry-first NVMe over PCIe 5.0 validation and compliance testing system from traditional SSD manufacturers to new markets comprised of data center storage and large cloud vendors.
“Customer confidence has grown beyond our traditional walls of satisfying requirements from major SSD manufacturers to supporting large data centers and cloud storage organizations,” said Rick Walsh, VP of Sales and Marketing. “This evolution stems from our first-to-market leadership for early adoption and development of NVMe PCIe Gen5. Early availability was a critical factor in enabling our key strategic customers to meet their internal development schedules for Gen 5 SSD’s and FCS releases.”
“SANBlaze partnered with WD to get our Gen5 Validation infrastructure ready in time including SRIS/SRNS clocking features which helped to fast track our overall Gen5 bring up,” said Anuj Awasthi, Senior Director, System Design and Firmware Verification Engineering, Western Digital Corp.
As per the source, in addition to SSD manufacturers such as Western Digital, SANBlaze is onboarding new major cloud and data center storage providers as they recognize the capabilities and value of the Certified by SANBlaze test suites as a first-level SSD validation criterion.
