ExaDISK FX1

HIGH SPEED NETWORK CAPTURE STORAGE CARD

The ExaDISK FX1 is an NVMe SSD storage drive, specifically optimized for high speed network capture applications.

The device is built using a unique quad-controller architecture. Traditional NVMe drives use only one flash memory controller, causing a performance bottleneck. When this single controller is busy, the flash memory cannot be accessed to read or store data.

The ExaDISK FX1 overcomes this using a novel disk slice architecture. The device incorporates four independent, parallel flash controllers, each one controlling its own storage slice.

This unique design ensures that maximum PCIe bandwidth can be used at all times. Applications can access disk slices independently or simultaneously, alowing sustained read rates in excess of 7GB/s (56Gbps) and sustained write rates in excess of 6GB/s (48Gbps). This architecture is perfectly suited to high speed network catpure.

When combined with ExaNIC network interface cards, and our free and open source Exact Capture software, the the ExaDISK FX1 is a core component of our complete high speed network capture solution.
