Joint Collaboration Efforts between Indilinx, Cavium Networks, and Narinet bring Industrial Grade Solid State Drives (SSD) into Networking Storage Systems

Narinet Leverages Industrial Grade SSDs in the High Performance Multimedia Networking Storage Systems based on xTCA platforms, incorporating both Indilinx Barefoot™ SSD controller with proprietary Ndurance™ Technology and Cavium Networks OCTEON® Network Processor

Milpitas , Calif. , Oct. 28, 2009 – INDILINX today announced that INDILINX’s Barefoot™ Solid State Drive (SSD) controllers with its proprietary Ndurance™ Technology, in collaboration with Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, storage, wireless and video applications, are integrated into Narinet family of xTCA Networking Storage Systems setting with unprecedented performance aimed for IPTV, 3G Wireless, LTE, and Security Applications. The collaboration between three companies demonstrates how SSDs based on Indilinx Barefoot™ SSD controller solutions can be used in the telecommunication and networking industrial market.

Narinet’s xTCA Networking Storage Systems (NSTM-1000/NSTM-1010/NSTM-200) configured with Cavium Network OCTEON® processor and Indilinx Barefoot™ SSD controller with proprietary Ndurance™ Technology solution deliver new level of cost reduction by reducing the overall footprint of the system design and energy consumption, while providing higher levels of performance and lifespan of SSDs that would otherwise be difficult to achieve without using multiple number of hard disk drives. The result is unparalleled rendering of significant total reduction in total cost of ownership of the entire networking storage system. In addition to the SSD controller, Indilinx provides optimized file system, streaming, and I/O scheduling technology solutions to Narinet xTCA networking storage systems for the most reliable, dependable, and highest performance.

“The value added by tight integration of the Cavium Networks OCTEON® multi-core processor and Indilinx Barefoot™ SSD controller & solutions is the key differentiator behind our partnership,” said Taeck Geun Kwon, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Narinet. “The recent multimedia applications such as IPTV and wireless data service put a lot higher expectation on the role and the performance on the storage subsystem in ATCA platforms, which boosts the increasing demand by cable and wireless operators worldwide. The proven combined value added solutions will provide an optimized storage solution for various ATCA based application platforms such as IPTV, security, and cloud computing – and adds up our technology competency and continued leadership in the ATCA storage market.”

“We are very pleased to announce that Indilinx Barefoot™ SSD controller solution is apt to industrial segment such as in telecommunication and networking market in which the requirements are rigorous 24 hours a day, 7 days a week operations,” said Bumsoo Kim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Indilinx. “The joint collaboration between three companies, Indilinx, Cavium Networks, and Narinet shows how excellent technologies can be integrated together to deliver the best in the class products. This announcement represents the fact that Indilinx SSD controllers are not just for enthusiast market but a serious contender for industrial and OEM markets in which require much more robust and extensive storage qualification processes.”

“Cavium Networks’ OCTEON multi-core MIPS64 processors offer simultaneous high performance for both networking packets/sec and storage IOPS,“ said Amer Haider, Sr. Director of Corporate and Business Development at Cavium Networks. “Narinet has put together a compelling solution for OEMS building network and storage applications for event logging, streaming and back-up. We look forward to working together with Indilinx to continue to provide tightly integrated high performance SSD based networked storage solutions.”
