Challenge: Ever expanding Tick Data volumes

You need quick data access, which necessitates the use of SSDs to fulfill the IO requirements. The data set is expanding, moving from a few terabytes to tens or even hundreds of terabytes, which intensifies concerns regarding the expense, energy, and physical space needed for storage. Compressing the data appears to be a viable solution to mitigate the impact on storage space, cost per usable terabyte, and power consumption. However, implementing data compression on the CPU might lead to latency issues, disrupt the performance of analytics applications, and could ultimately result in higher overall power usage.

Solution: The CSD 3000

ScaleFlux CSD 3000 is an NVMe SSD tailored for challenging workloads, featuring a distinctive ability to compress (and decompress) data directly on the drive. This leads to reduced latency, enhanced IO, and improved performance per watt – creating a triple advantage scenario not just for your drives, but for your whole server.

Benefits: More efficiency, TCO, and application responsiveness

How is this possible? All thanks to the hardware-based compression in the drives.

  • Analyzing more data in the same server footprint
  • Utilizing compression to reduce storage costs and improve latency & IO (instead of trading off between storage costs and latency & IO penalties)
  • Extending the lifespan of flash storage to match server refresh cycles
  • Avoiding the need to install any new drivers or software since the drives use standard NVMe drivers & commands
  • Scaling compression throughput with each drive you install instead of over-buying CPU cores to handle the potential future workload
