Moving Data And Computing Closer Together
The speed of processors has increased to the point where they often are no longer the performance bottleneck for many systems. It’s now about data access.
Computational storage fundamentals explained
Computational storage is an emerging technology, but it isn't too soon to develop an understanding of how it can be used to address storage latency and performance issues.
The 20 Coolest Component Vendors: The 2020 Storage 100
These 20 storage component vendors give software and data the right base on which to operate.
Computational storage terminology explained
Computational and edge storage are changing the way we manage data at the network edge. Understanding the terminology around this technology can help clarify how it works.
Computational Storage Winds Its Way Towards The Mainstream
Enterprises are said to be awash in data, and one of the problems posed by all this data is not just storing it, but processing it. Storage architectures have by and large been keeping up with the capacity problem, while the introduction of flash has also given storage a much-needed speed-up over the past decade, significantly boosting the performance of transactional workloads such as databases as well as file, block, and object storage.
Top 2019 enterprise storage arrays win Products of the Year
Winners of the 2019 Products of the Year signal a shift from disk to flash storage arrays. Vast Data takes gold, NGD Systems wins silver and DataDirect Networks captures bronze.
Compute-in-storage startup NGD raises $20m
Compute-in-storage pioneer NGD has raised $20m in a C-series round to develop production of its technology and invest in sales and marketing.
NGD Systems Raises $20 Million in Series C Funding to Accelerate the Deployment of the World’s First NVMe Computational Storage Drive
The latest round includes new investments from MIG Capital and Western Digital Capital Global, Ltd, that enables artificial intelligence, machine learning and edge computing within computational storage.
NGD raises $20 million for storage hardware designed to handle AI workloads
IDC predicts that worldwide data will grow 61% to 175 zettabytes by 2025, which will invariably put a strain on infrastructure as organizations look to sort, search, scan, and otherwise derive value from this data. That’s where NGD Systems comes in — it’s an Irvine, California-based company offering a computational storage drive tailor-made for on-device AI and machine workloads. To lay a runway for growth, NGD this week closed a $20 million series C financing round led by Western Digital Capital, with participation from existing investors including Orange Digital Ventures, Partech Ventures, BGV, and Plug-N-Play.
Data storage architecture poised for disruption in 2020
Experts predict edge computing, 5G and containers will fuel computational storage, new storage systems dedicated to container-based applications, and flash-based object stores.
