HSE is intended for those that have an all-flash infrastructure and wish to use open-source software with the ability to customize or enhance code for their own applications.
HSE provides performance and endurance improvements, reduces latency, especially for large-scale data sets, through intelligent data placement. It can improve the throughput of particular storage applications by up to six times, reduce latency 11 times and improve SSD endurance by seven times. HSE is also able to take advantage of multiple classes of media concurrently.
• Integration with MongoDB, providing performance improvements, reducing latency and taking advantage of modern memory and storage technologies. It can also be integrated with other storage applications like NoSQL databases and object stores.
• Performance at scale, including very large data size, large key counts (billions), high operation concurrency (thousands), or deployment of multiple classes of media.
• The ability to be extensible to new interfaces and new storage devices, enabling use with a broad range of applications and solutions.
• Additional performance for software-defined storage, such as Red Hat Ceph Storage and Scality RING, that enables cloud-native applications through containerized platforms like Red Hat OpenShift as well as tiered performance for file, block and object storage protocols for multiple use cases.
HSE is delivered as an embeddable key-value database; Micron will maintain the code repository on GitHub.
