The ScaleFlux CSD 3000 is a third-generation computational storage SSD built with a custom ASIC around flash controller and an eight-core Arm processor. We built these NVMe SSDs for enterprise servers and the demanding workloads & reliability specs of enterprise customers. We don’t have a retail or consumer version.

In the current generation of CSD (computational storage drive), we have implemented compression in hardware (vastly more power & performance efficient than using CPUs). To get all the benefits of compression in the SSD, we have to develop a novel flash management process to manage the variable lengths of data that result from compression (vs the fixed length blocks that are typically managed by SSD controllers).

The drives are warranted for 5yrs, or lifetime petabytes written (PBW) (which scales with capacity). You may also see Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) as the indicator of how many times you can fully overwrite the entire capacity of the drives each day. Given even a very modest amount of compression (1.2:1 compression ratio), the drives achieve 2x the endurance of other NVMe SSDs.

Our current generation of products have a custom SoC ASIC designed by us, we do not use FPGA. This is to reduce costs, improve performance, and to enable NVMe compatibility.

No, we use the same SKU for both. In your latency-sensitive application, you may choose to maximize the performance benefits and not use the capacity multiplier function, while in your cost-sensitive application you may choose to max out the capacity multiplier to reduce the cost/GB of data stored.
