Computational Storage at Scale with ScaleFlux

Most of us can’t imagine computers before SSDs. SSDs, without a doubt, stand for the best of innovation in storage in the recent years. In one fell swoop, they changed the storage game everywhere, from consumer electronics to datacenters. But as innovation marches on, the top-tier workloads are once again in need of more capacity and processing power. As we approach the limit of computing power, the demanding nature of new workloads is telling us one thing- we need a better SSD.

Recently, Gestalt IT’s publisher Stephen Foskett met with JB Baker, VP of Marketing at ScaleFlux to learn about their offerings that seem to perfectly fit the definition of a better SSD.

ScaleFlux and Computational Storage

ScaleFlux’s SSDs are however a class of their own. ScaleFlux took an ordinary NVMe SSD, and elevated it with computational storage.

For years, compute and storage have been put in separate bins. Now architects have reason to believe that moving data between storage and CPU wastes power which can be otherwise used to process data. Computational storage is an architecture that provides computational storage capabilities within the storage. […]
