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.

For background on computational storage, our ScaleFlux CSD 2000 review (the previous version of the CSD 3000 reviewed here) is a worthwhile read. In short, computational storage integrates computing resources in the storage itself instead of relying on the host system’s computing resources.
