ScaleFlux sold its first two generations of computational storage SSDs direct, but the new series is more plug and play, so they are selling it through channel partners as well, and have built a channel program to facilitate this.
The storage world is driving in the fast lane of change as the focus on speeds and feeds gives way to a focus on business requirements.
San Jose-based ScaleFlux, which makes SSDs with computational storage at scale for larger customers, has announced the general availability of its 3000-series suite of products based on its new System-on-Chip [SoC] Storage Processor, the ScaleFlux SFX 3000. The 3000 series portfolio, including the CSD 3000 series NVMe Computational Storage Drives, NSD 3000 series NVMe SSDs, and SFX 3000 storage processing, are all being displayed at the 2022 Flash Memory Summit, which runs through Thursday at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
ScaleFlux was founded in 2014 by a team with extensive backgrounds in the storage industry, who got together to solve the issues of computational storage, in which the processing speed has been growing at a much slower rate than data storage.
That’s why in the last 5-10 years, it has been all about helping CPUs increase speed to accelerate and offload workloads.Hao Zhong, Co-founder and CEO of ScaleFlux.
