NGD Systems Makes Another Stride Earning 30th Patent

NGD Systems Makes Another Stride Earning 30th Patent

At NGD Systems, innovation is in our DNA. We were the first company to offer “In-Situ” Processing in a commercially available product and as a result, have been awarded 30 patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; with additional patents pending. Since achieving the first patent in August 2014, NGD has gone on to create the storage industry’s most innovative technology, including the largest capacity and most power-efficient NVMe Computational Storage Drives (CSDs).

Get To Know NGD Systems Executives: CEO Edition

Get To Know NGD Systems Executives: CEO Edition

Nader Salessi, CEO, NGD Systems. In the early 2000’s I decided to hone in on storage used in all kinds of computing … I found there was a demand for something new and a better way to process massive amounts of data ... It was then when I took a leap of faith, if you will, and founded NGD Systems to provide a revolutionary new technology now called Computational Storage by the market.

The Superhero of Storage

The Superhero of Storage

What can save us from the Data Tsunami? Computational Storage! It’s an IT architecture where data is processed at the storage device level to reduce the amount of data that has to move between the storage and compute plane. As such, the technology provides a faster and more efficient means to address the unique challenges of our data-heavy world.

Computational Storage Takes AI By Storm

Computational Storage Takes AI By Storm

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is meant to make life better and simplify the world but, without Computational Storage, it can actually be like adding new rooms and walls with an architecture that is never-ending. You might find yourself in a maze similar to the Winchester Mystery House that didn’t have any master building plan as evident by the doors that lead to nowhere and stairs that end at a solid wall. Had the blueprint considered options like Computational Storage then it would help simplify the floor plan and piece together the house with purpose and direction by making it simple, smarter and more efficient.

Event Season in Full Bloom: HPC & AI On Wall Street

Event Season in Full Bloom: HPC & AI On Wall Street

Fall is our favorite season! Why? Because it’s peak event season! NGD Systems will be attending HPC & AI On Wall Street next week, where thought leaders, users, and solution providers meet to share lessons learned and discuss the latest technology innovations. With the convergence of big data and artificial intelligence (AI), businesses must stay ahead of the rapidly evolving fintech solutions required that transcend questions of scale.

Flash Memory Summit 2019: The Year of Computational Storage

Flash Memory Summit 2019: The Year of Computational Storage

Earlier this I attended my 12th Flash Memory Summit (FMS) where I had the opportunity to mingle with the best and brightest minds in the storage industry, many of who I already know well , as well as share with influencers our newest products and initiatives. For instance, a few weeks ago, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) revealed the official definitions and categories of Computational Storage. I find great pleasure that I was able to help spearhead this effort as the Co-Chair of the SNIA Computational Storage Technical Working Group (CS TWG) and share in this pivotal industry event.
