When Performance Matters...A New Look for E8 Storage
Author: Zivan Ori, CEO & Co-Founder
When we publicly launched the company and our first products in 2016, we were pioneering a new software architecture built for the emerging NVMe flash protocol.  Our appliances were delivering very high throughput with very low latency which allowed us to focus on the analytics market where real-time performance had driven customers to revert back to internal SSDs inside of the server to meet the latency needs of their applications.  We knew we had a much better solution for them.

Ethernet will win again!
Author: Ron Herrmann, Director of Sales Engineering

Ethernet ended up beating them all – it was simple to configure and just plain worked (I remember how ironic it was that ATM switches had a 10M Ethernet management port!). Ethernet was also far less expensive than token-ring or ATM. Low-cost combined with simplicity and reliability; it’s a winning combination every time.
