Kove® External Memory revolutionizes how developers, administrators, and data centers think about memory by breaking down the physical barriers of traditional server hardware and decoupling memory from the server. The result? A massively scalable, provisionable memory resource just as fast as local memory. Kove® External Memory is easy to configure, requires no application code changes, and utilizes cost-effective commodity servers.
Like a Storage Area Network that provisions storage using policies, Kove® External Memory delivers a RAM Area Network that similarly provisions memory using policies. Both provide comparable advantages, deploying a global resource exactly where, when, and how needed on-demand.
To create a Kove® External Memory instance, simply install Kove® EMX software which includes the following three components:
Kove® External Memory makes it easy to turn commodity servers into a software-defined memory pool. Applications access and use the memory pool as they would traditional server memory, no code changes required. Just add more servers and the memory pool scales linearly, without performance degradation.
