SolidRun, Virtium Announce New Partnership

August 20, 2020 Perry Cohen

SolidRun and Virtium have announced a collaboration to provide building blocks for creating new technologies for the network edge that fully benefit from 5G.

The collaboration leverages SolidRun’s CEx7 16-core LX2160A Computer-on-Module and ClearFog CX LX2K network computing platform, and Virtium’s StorFly® M.2 SATA industrial-grade SSDs, DDR4 memory modules and StorKit™ SSD software.

“We see many industries looking to the near-zero latency of 5G as being the key to unlocking the true potential of Industrial IoT, but to benefit from these speeds, having the right hardware is critical,” said CEO of SolidRun Atai Ziv, in a press release. “We saw an opportunity to create a variety of solutions ranging from computer on modules and carrier boards to rack-mount Arm servers that will expedite the proliferation of 5G across the entire ecosystem.

“Additionally, we’re teaming up with key industry players, like Virtium, to ensure that our systems are paired with storage solutions that won’t bottleneck data processing speeds or compromise data security.”

As 5G becomes more prominent, the collaboration between SolidRun and Virtium, will attempt to support a range of edge computing applications for both indoor and outdoor deployment.
