While computational storage (CS) is currently in the ‘trough of disillusionment,’ that doesn’t mean the technology is doomed. Learn the benefits of CS and what’s keeping it from taking off.

Gartner’s hype cycle describes the way technologies progress from birth to adoption. The cycle begins with an ‘innovation trigger’ that soon leads to a ‘peak of expectations’ followed by a steep descent into the ‘trough of disillusionment.’ 

Computational storage (CS) currently appears to be deep in that trough. But in Gartner’s model, the trough is followed by a rapid climb to the ‘slope of enlightenment’ and, implicitly, adoption. Adherents of CS are optimistic that the technology they have been dev… […].
