MEMXPRO launches mSMART storage device monitoring for AIoT

MEMXPRO announces the launch of mSMART 4.0, its new generation smart storage device monitoring software tool, available free for download. MEMXPRO mSMART 4.0 is able to check read/write performance, system information, lifespan, and disk health status of all storage devices, including MEMXPRO and other brands. Enabling the predictive power of big data analytics in the AIoT era, mSMART detects problems and provides alerts to reduce routine inspection tasks and operational costs. Integrated with an enterprise database, the system will record SSD status and store data logs to benefit big data analytics that help decision making processes.

Featuring powerful functions, easy to use MEMXPRO mSMART software tool discloses detailed information about almost all of their industrial SSD brands, exceeding even the functions of current SSD testing tools like crystaldiskinfo. Many industrial customers want to know more about the SSD controller model numbers, but many module manufacturers hide this information by removing the IC markings and as a result, customers cannot fully understand their hardware. To avoid confusion, mSMART can fully display original host controller model numbers and detailed up-to-date information, as well using advanced algorithms for accurate lifespan calculations.

The AIoT era brings Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) together making the world smarter and boosting AI systems on the edge to fulfill rapid microsecond responses for time-critical applications with minimal network latency. According to Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan R.O.C, data processed and stored at the edge outside of a traditional data centers will increase to 75% by 2022.

It is well known that these days autonomous cars are equipped with terminals, sensors, actuators, and controllers. Along with gateways, edge servers, and roadside equipment at local sites, these end devices are driven by algorithms, with continuous scanning of surrounding traffic flows and prediction of possible changes to those surroundings in order to quickly react to real-time traffic conditions for enhanced driver safety. Edge clusters handle large-area, high-definition maps, and high-volume database analytics with deep learning on cloud-based systems. To locally process data for flexible deployment, MEMXPRO mSMART 4.0 conducts storage device monitoring and data acquisition at the edge, transferring crucial data to central management.

Smart factories rely on edge computing, AI, and data analytics and systems help provide real-time information when abnormal conditions occur. MEMXPRO mSMART 4.0 is able to check total disk activity, as well as helping to trace and manage disk utilization and health status. When it detects high risk conditions, warning notices are given out to remind users to take preventative action. mSMART 4.0 also combines with system maintenance scheduling to intelligently send out commands for preventive measures, reducing maintenance burden and enhancing operational efficiency.

MEMXPRO new mSMART tool supports Windows, Linux, and Andriod OS and can monitor DRAM modules and storage devices with PCIe and SATA interfaces, showing device part numbers, firmware versions and controller information. Its clean and simplified GUI makes mSMART 4.0 intuitive and easy to understand and use. For advanced SSD users, a more powerful version provides information regarding sequential and random read/write speeds and performance, spare block space, disk temperatures, health status, and lifespan info. In addition, users can read S.M.A.R.T. system information, log files, and alert/email setups. MEMXPRO advances industrial storage product competitiveness with software, firmware, and hardware products that provide intelligent tools for analysis and prediction, cost evaluation, safety, and efficiency.

MEMXPRO 100 percent focuses on providing industrial and server memory modules and flash storage solutions, with in-house software, firmware, and customization services. The main product lines include high-capacity MLC E231 series with 4TB 2.5” SSD, 1TB mSATA and Half Slim SATA, high-speed NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD, extended endurance StrongMLC SSD, Power Plus SSD for power loss protection, and industrial wide temperature DIMM modules and flash storage devices. MEMXPRO also develops value-added software tools, including an mSMART device monitoring agent, OS pre-loaded service, SDK, and SaveOS system recovery service. The integration of hardware and software helps customers save development time and reduces cost.
