The Cosmos+ OpenSSD Platform is yet another PCIe-based SSD platform based on the HYU Tiger4 controller developed by ENC (Embedded and Network Computing) Lab. led by Prof. Yong Ho Song at Hanyang University, Korea. The HYU Tiger4 controller supports a subset of the NVMe interface protocol. In fact, the platform board is the same as the Cosmos Platform, but with a different storage controller (HYU Tiger4) in FPGA (you can upgrade the board by yourself). However, the Cosmos+ OpenSSD requires new memory modules (w/ toggle NANDs) because only the NAND flash devices with the toggle-mode interface are available.
The Cosmos OpenSSD Platform is a PCIe-based SSD platform based on the HYU Tiger3 controller. The HYU Tiger3 controller is developed by ENC (Embedded and Network Computing) Lab. led by Prof. Yong Ho Song at Hanyang University, Korea. This platform has been superseded by the latest Cosmos+ OpenSSD Platform from the same group.
The Jasmine OpenSSD Platform is a reference implementation of SATA SSD based on the Indilinx (now OCZ Storage Solutions) BarefootTM controller. The Indilinx BarefootTM controller is an ARM-based SATA controller used in numerous high-performance SSDs such as Corsair Memory’s Extreme/Nova, Crucial Technology’s M225, G.Skill’s Falcon, A-RAM’s Pro series, OCZ’s Vertex/Vertex Turbo/Agility/Solid II, Patriot Memory’s Torqx/Koi, RunCore’s IV, SuperTalent’s Ultradrive ME/GX, etc. The Jasmine OpenSSD platform is being actively used in many academic and research institutions worldwide.
