Lightbits is Democratizing Simple,
Efficient and Agile Cloud-Scale Storage for All.

Digital Transformation Starts with NVMe/TCP

Lightbits invented the NVMe/TCP storage protocol and delivered the industry’s first product in 2019. It is an extremely important advancement in protocols that unlocks significant technological and business value using standard Ethernet TCP/IP networking. NVMe/TCP accelerates data pipelines, faster than direct-attached NVMe (DAS), Fibre Channel (FC) storage arrays, and iSCSI. When deployed on a software-defined storage system like Lightbits, NVMe/TCP is easier to provision and manage than legacy storage architectures, while being more efficient, offering greater ability and delivering lower TCO.

Better Storage Efficiency with Intelligent Flash Management

Lightbits is the only software-defined, block storage solution available today with Intelligent Flash Management built-in. This unique innovation delivers a more optimized price/performance solution. Customers can leverage the immensely dense and lower-cost QLC SSD while extending its endurance by 20X. This scenario delivers better data center efficiency and faster access to data.

Cloud-Scale Data Centers Require a Modern Approach to Storage

Lightbits is driving innovation with dozens of patents awarded or pending. Our unique combination of software-defined, NVMe/TCP and disaggregated architecture combined with Intelligent Flash Management and essential data services are exactly what cloud-scale data centers require today. It’s high-performance block storage over Ethernet for mission-critical applications at an extremely attractive price/performance scenario that’s super easy to consume on any commodity hardware or public cloud.
