NGD Systems announces availability of industry’s first Computational Storage NVMe PCIe SSD



In-Situ Processing


NGD Systems SSD Controllers incorporate revolutionary "at storage" hardware acceleration putting the computational capability into the storage itself and eliminating the need to move data to main memory prior to processing.  This evolutionary step forward enables new paradigms in Big Data Analytics processing:


  • Distributed Processing
  • Processing Capability scales with Storage Capacity
  • IO Intensive Applications
  • Opportunity for Heterogeneous Computing
    • HW Acceleration
    • Embedded Artificial Intelligence
    • Machine Learning

Elastic FTL


NGD Systems SSD Controllers use proprietary Elastic FTL and Advanced LDPC Engines to provide NAND Flash Agnostic capabilities and industry leading capacity scalability.  This elasticity supports the ever changing availability of 3D NAND, QLC NAND, and future NAND device specifications.

Power & Weight


NGD Systems Catalina SSD has the lowest Watts Per TB rating in the industry.




Founded in mid 2013, with offices in Irvine, CA, NGD Systems(formerly NxGnData) is a privately held company focused on the design and manufacture of a new generation of Intelligent SSD Solutions.  The company is led by Nader Salessi, Founder & CEO, Vladimir Alves, Co-Founder & CTO, and Richard Mataya, Co-Founder & EVP.
