RNA Networks Inc., a virtual memory provider, has partnered with Mellanox Technologies Ltd., a connectivity solutions provider for data center servers and storage systems, to demonstrate advancements in memory virtualization.

The partnership will combine RNA’s MVX 2.5 with Mellanox ConnectX-2 40Gb/s InfiniBand adapter to create a memory cloud, a technology that consolidates memory across multiple servers into a single memory service.

The cloud service is designed to extend server memory and speed up storage for performance improvements of up to 12 times in virtualized environments, according to the companies. The service also is designed to maximize I/O throughput by leveraging memory across servers and storing the information as a cache in the computer tier, which the companies say allows active data closer to applications while offloading storage.
