“As enterprises continue to generate more data, they’re increasingly faced with the reality that ‘scale-out’ is not a long-term sustainable strategy. Datacenter space is at a premium and every node added triggers cascading costs and architecture challenges. The fixed size of today’s storage devices is already creating problems. It has become increasingly complicated and expensive to evolve workloads: As they grow or change, the only option is often to add additional drives,” asserted Baker.
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.
ScaleFlux first introduced the SSD compute platform in 2021, and the company has now announced a higher capacity version of the CSD 3000 drives. The CSD 3000 platform itself is quite powerful, with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and several other accelerators.
