The 2022 Open Compute Project (OCP) Summit includes several digital storage and memory related announcements, from the OCP Foundation as well as various vendors. Here we discuss the OCP Grand Canyon HDD storage system, CXL support from Astera Labs, new data Center SSDs from Kioxia as well as computational storage SSDs from ScaleFlux and Pliops and a new OCP rack compliant tape system from IBM.


ScaleFlux has been a pioneer in computational storage (CS) and said that CS is going mainstream with NVMe compatible SSDs. ScaleFlux includes computational capabilities built into their SSDs and has been an active contributor to the CS effort. In particular ScaleFlux talked about using the CS inside their SSDs to do fast, no overhead compression/decompression on the SSD. With real time compression/decompression the SSD gets a capacity and also a performance boost and lower latency. The company includes CS-based compression/decompression across all of its SSD offerings (CSD 2000, CSD 3000 and NSD 3000). In addition, the CSD and NSD 3000 also do CS-based encryption/decryption.



ScaleFlux is the pioneer in deploying Computational Storage at scale. Computational Storage is the foundation for modern, data-driven infrastructure that enables responsive performance, affordable scaling, and agile platforms for compute and storage I/O intensive applications. Founded in 2014, ScaleFlux is a well-funded startup with leaders proven to deploy complex computing and solid-state storage solutions in volume.
