NGD Systems Becomes First to Demonstrate Azure IoT Edge Using Computational Storage

IRVINE, Calif.—August 7, 2019--NGD Systems, Inc., the world leader in NVMe Computational Storage, announced today at the Flash Memory Summit that it has embedded the Azure IoT Edge service directly within its Computational Storage solid-state devices (SSDs), making them the only platform to support the service directly within a storage device. In addition, NGD Systems introduced its 32TB Newport U.2 SSD, which offers <12W of power, doubling the capacity of the existing Newport Platform U.2 SSD form-factor. The two announcements underscore NGD’s continuing leadership in developing the edge ecosystem, achieving improvements in power, cost and physical footprint for data-intensive big-data-set workloads. These real-world use cases prove that scalable, integrated Computational Storage devices provide empirical benefits to edge applications.
