A next-generation NVMe computational storage solid-state drive (SSD)
The CSD 3000 stands apart from ordinary NVMe SSDs by integrating hardware accelerator engines directly into the drive controller (SFX 3016). These accelerator engines efficiently and transparently compress the data at line rate, resulting in SSD performance, latency, endurance, and economics that are up to 10x better than ordinary enterprise NVMe SSDs deliver… all without adding any of the complexity of application integration or new software. This multiplies your efficiency, sustainability, utilization and TCO at the server, rack and data center level.
Tailor-made for the enterprise sector, the CSD 3000 unlocks the full potential of flash memory
CSD 3000 Transparent compression
This hardware data compression happens directly on the SSD, ensuring maximum storage efficiency. The true beauty of this feature lies in its transparency — the host remains completely unaware of this process. This means that it requires no additional software, eliminates any need for application reconfigurations, and thus keeps complexity at bay.
No additional complexity
This groundbreaking SSD utilizes standard NVMe drivers, a well-established protocol for nonvolatile memory technologies like SSDs. This ensures it brings no more complexity than any other NVMe SSD, creating a seamless adoption process for IT.

Zero additional complexity
An enterprise SSD that requires no special drivers, software, or application configuration simplifies the installation and integration process, allowing businesses to deploy and scale their storage infrastructure swiftly.
1300x better compression efficiency
Offloading compression from the CPU to dedicated hardware compression engines on the drive significantly improves compression performance per watt and frees up the host CPU increasing the overall performance of the system.
2x or more application performance
Multiplies database and storage IO performance by 2x or more. Learn more.
Up to 9x the endurance
Compressing data directly on the drive has another upside; by reducing the amount of data written to the drive, there is an improvement of up to 9x the endurance of ordinary “capacity” SSDs.
