“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.
Solutions Review’s Expert Insights Series is a collection of contributed articles written by industry experts in enterprise software categories. In this feature, ScaleFlux VP of Product Management JB Baker offers his most noteworthy enterprise storage trends to be aware of this year.
ScaleFlux uniquely focuses on computational storage at scale. Its new Computational Storage Device (CSD) 3000 is a Gen4 SSD with integrated data compression and decompression engines, which the company says can quadruple capacity and double performance. We’ll be putting those claims to the test.
