AFCEA WEST 2020. Phoenix International Systems unveiled what they claim to be the industry’s first FIPS 140-2 certified encryption Open VPX NVM Express (NVMe) Solid State Disk data storage module at AFCEA/USNI West 2020 Conference and Exposition.
According to the company, the VP1-250-eSSDC is a VITA 48/REDI conduction-cooled 3U VPX SSD storage module delivering high performance. The company claims that it was designed from the ground up to remove legacy layers of hard drive interfaces such as SATA and SAS, and that it takes full advantage of the speed and parallelism of solid state nonvolatile memory.
Streamlined efficient queuing protocol combined with an optimized command set register interface are intended to enable low latency and high performance. It is designed to deliver data fast and efficiently with minimal burden on the host CPU. The VP1-250-eSSDC supports TCG compliant AES-256 and FIPS140-2 certified encryption as well as military-grade data elimination, according to the company.
NVM Express (NVMe) is an industry-standard registered interface designed to accelerate the performance of nonvolatile PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs. The NVMe protocol was established in collaboration by server industry leaders to standardize a scalable PCIe interface, making it easier for designers to unlock the full potential of PCIe.
