Advances in NVMe and FC-NVMe
SANBlaze Technology, Inc. is a pioneer in SAN Emulation technologies and a leading provider of storage solutions for embedded systems. SANBlaze emulation products provide storage engineers, test, QA and manufacturing teams with scalable, high performance and configurable emulated environments for FCoE, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, SAS and NVMe targets and initiators. SANBlaze emulation systems are installed at most major storage hardware and software vendors worldwide.
Introducing the SBExpress NVMe SSD Drive Test System
The SANBlaze SBExpress full feature set provides a unique set of functions applicable in all aspects of a product lifecycle; from development to design validation to test and QA. The ability to drive NVMe SSDs with a wide range of configurable attributes provides engineers with a flexible, scalable tool to simulate real disk and memory access environments and issues. Development, qualification, and certification test cycles can be highly automated, thus reducing overall test time, and rapidly surfacing errors and non-conformance.
SBExpress hardware also features full power margining under software control and continuous Voltage, Current and Power measurement at each device while testing. Adding an optional Quarch™ riser enables signal glitching on all PCIe signals, and Quarch integration into SANBlaze VLUN software allows glitching, PCIe lane failure and drive controlled/surprise removal operations to occur while testing.

The SANBlaze VirtuaLUN has been an excellent tool for traffic generation and performance testing at UNH-IOL plugfests for Fibre Channel and NVMe. We’re happy to use the VirtuaLUN as a resource in our lab for stressing systems when performing interoperability testing.
