re JMR by Zsolt Kerekes,
editor StorageSearch.com -
JMR first came to my attention in a storage
context in 2000 when they expanded their
JBOD business to enter the
NAS market. And then later in 2002 they extended that business with the
acquisition of Trimm
JMR kept me updated in subsequent years as they
expanded their support of more storage interfaces and faster drives.
my interest in me-too companies in the
RAID market was
There were (over
150 RAID companies
listed on this site in 2001) and by around 2004 I knew I would soon dedicate
nearly all my time to accelerate the growth of the SSD market. So JMR -
as an enclosure specialist - was no longer the kind of company which I was
Unsurprisingly I may have missed their first entry in
the SSD market - although I was aware that in 2015 they began shipping PCIe
SSD expansion boxes to the Mac (consumer) market.
But if you're in the
PR business -
here's a lesson.
Even though I hadn't written about the company for
nearly 15 years due to my reader focus being similar but not close enough they
kept me updated with their news emails.
June 2017 that
paid off for me when I saw that the company now offers a range of NVMe PCIe SSDs
for the HPC market - which they call
here's the curious thing.
If this story came from anywhere else I
wouldn't be interested because enterprise
PCIe SSD market and
its pioneers were a hot part of my editorial and business from 2007. But
flash PCIe SSDs are now a commodity market. And I'm more interested in
writing about disruptive technology changes than shades of catalogware.
when a specialist enclosure company - JMR - gets into that market - the lesson
is - that SSDs today occupy the same place in infrastructure that hard
drive trays did in the 1990s.
And whereas there are huge differences of
approach seen in the rackmount
SSD market and many SSD
software revolutions still waiting to be decided in mediating bumpy
transitions from big
SSD storage to
systems - there will always be a need by specialist integrators for boxes
The commoditization and customization of (no software)
vanilla SSD arrays is one of the cornerstones of
rackmount SSD consolidation.

| Editor:- June 16, 2017 - Persistence can be a
virtue for PR folk
and not just memories.
Although it's been 15 years since I last wrote about JMR I was still reading
Recently they began shipping NVMe PCIe SSDs (HHHL and
bigger) aimed at the HPC and other high throughput integrator markets. MSRP of
the JMR SiloStor starts
at $795 for 512GB. Capacities available upto 8TB.
If you need any
boxes to put the new SSDs in - they might have some suggestions as they've been
in the special enclosure business since 1982.
Flash Arrays - what's next?|
| Throughout the
the data storage market we've always expected the capacity of enterprise user
memory systems to be much smaller than the capacity of all the other attached
storage in the same data processing environment. |
thought provoking blog -
memory systems - asks (among other things) will this always be true?
|Like good software a well
designed custom SSD can greatly benefit from the analysis of expensive functions
which can be reduced in scale or avoided. |
|some thoughts about SSD
|For a year or so before
publishing this article - I had the idea of compiling a simple list of military
SSD companies here on StorageSearch.com to act as a pool for designers and
specifiers of products involved in applications which needed militarized, tough
and secure SSDs.
There was a part of me which naggingly said - why's it taking so long?
