NVMesh Transforms NVMe Drives

Excelero provides scalable, high-performance storage solutions for customers deploying systems with  AI/ML, HPC, database acceleration, and analytics workloads. Excelero’s software delivers a new level of storage capabilities to public clouds.

NVMesh, Excelero’s flagship product, transforms NVMe drives into enterprise-level protected storage supporting any local or distributed file system. With data center scalability, NVMesh provides data protection and continuous monitoring of stored data.

With the acquisition, NVIDIA adds deep expertise in block storage and HPC workloads. Block storage also has an important role to play inside the DOCA software framework that runs on DPUs. The company has been a partner of NVIDIA early on, collaborating on accelerating storage with RDMA, a key technology at the heart of both InfiniBand and RoCE (Ethernet) networks. That partnership attracted Mellanox, now a part of NVIDIA, as an investor.

According to Yaniv Romem, Excelero’s CEO and co-founder:

“The Excelero team is joining NVIDIA as demand is surging for high-performance computing and AI. We’ll be working with NVIDIA to ensure our existing customers are supported, and going forward we’re thrilled to apply our expertise in block storage to NVIDIA’s world-class AI and HPC platforms.”

Founded in 2014, Excelero developed NVMesh, software that manages and secures virtual arrays of NVMe flash drives as block storage available across public and private clouds. Looking ahead, Excelero’s technology will be integrated into NVIDIA’s enterprise software stack. NVIDIA will continue to support Excelero’s customers by honoring its contracts.
