LITTLETON, Mass., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SANBlaze today released the latest version of its industry leading VirtuaLUN™ storage emulation software. New features include: initiator support for NVM Express (NVMe) drive testing; complete support for 32G Fibre Channel cards, increasing the performance of the SANBlaze solution for line rate 32G FC testing; Emulex® 40G FCoE /iSCSI support; and added support for Quarch modules to allow support for drive pulls and low level signal glitching.

SANBlaze VirtuaLUN NVMe Initiator is the key piece of test equipment for anyone needing to test NVMe target devices. NVMe was created to deliver the full potential of Non-Volatile Memory in Enterprise and Client platforms for PCI Express® based SSDs. The VirtuaLUN feature set provides a unique set of functions applicable in all aspects of a product lifecycle; from development to design validation to test and QA. The ability to drive NVMe targets with a wide range of configurable attributes provides engineers with a flexible, scalable tool to simulate real disk and memory access environments and issues. Development, qualification and certification test cycles can be highly automated, reducing time and surfacing issues and errors.

"Increased adoption of the Non-Volatile Memory express NVMe specification and NVMe devices present a perfect use case for the SANBlaze emulation system. SANBlaze's high performance initiator emulation coupled with full support for NVMe devices make SANBlaze an invaluable tool for NVMe engineering qualification and production test. SANBlaze is currently working with leading NVMe device vendors providing multi-path, multiple namespace and reservation verification compliance testing," said Vince Asbridge, Director of Software Engineering of SANBlaze.

SANBlaze has added support for Quarch modules to allow support for drive pulls and low level signal glitching. Modules can be managed via Ethernet or connected directly to a SANBlaze system via USB. They can then be accessed via the SANBlaze GUI as well as by using a REST API to allow for scripting and automation.

The product is available now.
