Altera Corporation Developes a Storage Reference Design, Doubles Life of NAND Flash

Altera Corporation has developed a storage reference design, based on its Arria® 10 SoCs, that doubles the life of NAND flash and can increase the number of program-erase cycles by up to 7X compared to current NAND flash implementations. The reference design includes an Arria 10 SoC with an integrated dual-core ARM® Cortex®A9 processor, in an optimized, cost-effective, single-chip solution, leveraging a solid-state disk (SSD) controller from Mobiveil and NAND optimization software from NVMdurance. This reference design provides improved performance and flexibility in NAND utilization while reducing the cost of the NAND array by increasing the lifetime of data center equipment. Using FPGAs with integrated hard processor systems, designers can quickly take advantage of the cost savings offered by next-generation NAND devices while retaining the flexibility to customize a solution that maximizes the performance, durability and storage capacity of their system. This storage solution implements Mobiveil's Universal NVM Express Controller (UNEX), a configurable controller for PCIe-based SSDs, and NVMdurance's NAND flash optimization software in an Arria 10 SoC, enabling data centers to leverage the most advanced 3D NAND technology without the long design cycles required with ASIC designs. In this reference design, Mobiveil's controller supports multi-core architectures, enabling threads to run on each core with their own queue and interrupt without any locks required. NVMdurance's NAND flash optimization software constantly monitors the condition of the NAND flash and automatically adjusts the control parameters in real time, greatly extending the flash system's endurance. The Altera reference design also features end-to-end data protection, encryption and compression, and optimizes throughput and power consumption, all in a small silicon footprint.

Altera Corporation Announces Network Security Pioneer Secturion Systems, Inc. Selects Arria® 10 FPGAs for its Darkstora Secure Network Storage Appliance Product Lines

Altera Corporation announced that network security pioneer Secturion Systems Inc., has chosen Arria® 10 FPGAs for its DarkStora secure network storage appliance product lines. The DarkStor secure network storage appliance is capable of meeting the rigorous requirements for storing, retrieving and communicating secure data in high-bandwidth network and storage applications and is implemented using Altera's family of high-performance 20 nm Arria 10 FPGAs. It features storage network packet processors, key handling and XTS-AES-256 encryption rates of 40-Gbps and 100-Gbps "full duplex" using unique patent-pending, systolic matrix architectures suitable for big data storage and IP network applications. In addition, the appliance features multi-tenancy and multiple independent levels of security features that eliminate the need for separate storage areas for each customer or each data type, improving security and saving on infrastructure costs. Altera recently announced completion of the NSA's Information Assurance Directorate (IAD) Secure Implementation Guidelines (SIG) document for 28 nm FPGAs and SoCs, which provides unified government recommendations on the use of security settings in Altera FPGA and SoC products and how these products can be used most securely to mitigate security threats in system designs. The NSA IAD SIGÂ describes design and data security features unique to Altera 28 nm FPGAs and SoCs and provides guidelines for security policies based on typical scenarios. Altera is also working with the NSA IAD on SIG documents for 20 nm and 14 nm FPGAs and SoCs.

Secturion Systems, Inc. Chooses Altera's Arria 10 FPGA for its DarkStor™ Secure Network Storage Appliance Product Lines

Altera Corporation announced that Secturion Systems Inc. has chosen Arria® 10 FPGAs for its DarkStor™ secure network storage appliance product lines. Secturion Systems and Altera are showcasing the appliance at the NSA IAS 2015 from June 29 to July 1 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The DarkStor secure network storage appliance is capable of meeting the rigorous requirements for storing, retrieving and communicating secure data in high-bandwidth network and storage applications and is implemented using Altera's family of high-performance 20 nm Arria 10 FPGAs. It features storage network packet processors, key handling and XTS-AES-256 encryption rates of 40-Gbps and 100-Gbps "full duplex" using unique patent-pending, systolic matrix architectures suitable for big data storage and IP network applications.
