3 Ways Computational Storage Will Deliver Big in 2020
If 2019 was the year Computational Storage made an impact, you should expect 2020 to be an even more groundbreaking year for the storage industry. Last year, we saw new use cases for Computational Storage emerge as more organizations adopted AI and ML.
Being Thankful for our Employees – the Key to our Success!
Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and looking back on all the things we are grateful for in our lives. On behalf of the entire leadership team here at NGD Systems, we are truly thankful for all the people who make this company exceptional.
Get to Know NGD Systems Executives: EVP Edition
I often get asked how I got started with NGD Systems and I always start by saying that this is the culmination of a 30-year adventure.
Scott Shadley of NGD Systems is Appointed Board Member for SNIA
After volunteering for more than a decade with The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), I am honored to announce that I have been appointed to SNIA’s Board of Directors for the 2019 and 2020 term.
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).
Seamless and Simple Computational Storage
For nearly two decades the cloud has been a central piece in the establishment of Enterprise 3.0, providing tremendous scalability and enhancing forward looking enterprises’ ability to react to customer needs. The elasticity, affordability and the overall ability to provide the enterprise with multiple places to store and analyze data has made the cloud the ultimate windfall for our generation.
Get To Know NGD Systems Executives: CEO Edition
For the past 30 years I have worked with and formed a love for technology. In the early 2000’s I decided to hone in on storage used in all kinds of computing, working for companies such as STEC and Western Digital. While discussing with customers during that time, I found there was a demand for something new and a better way to process massive amounts of data. You see, as the data workloads were continuing to grow and become more complicated, I felt the storage products being built, like SSDs, needed something not done before. 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.
NGD Systems Receives Honors From Analyst and Research Firms
2019 has been a successful year for NGD Systems and there are still have three months to go! We are pleased to share several honors recognizing our success in developing the world’s most advanced Computational Storage Drives (CSDs) that allow customers to move compute to data anywhere.
The Superhero of Storage
In a world with an abundance of data and more Internet of Things devices connecting daily, we must adapt and figure out how to store, analyze and process the massive amount of data without causing bottlenecks and slow-downs. By 2025, it is expected that 175 zettabytes of data will be generated. There are currently more than five billion consumers interacting with data daily and by 2025 that number is expected to jump an additional billion.
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
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
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.
Computational Storage: What It Is and Why You Need It
As the data Tsunami continues at a rapid pace, IT architectures must evolve and that is where Computational Storage comes in. Computational Storage provides an innovative solution to today’s architecture, in which compute moves closer to where data is generated, rather than the data being moved up to compute. This is why computational storage is ideal for any organization deploying edge computing as its new model; it makes it possible to process data right where it’s created and needed, speeding up the time to analyze petabytes of data.
NGD Systems is Heading to Flash Memory Summit 2019!
It’s that time of year again – Flash Memory Summit! As you may know, FMS is a great opportunity for companies, influencers and media working in the storage industry to network. This will be NGD System’s 6 years in a row at the summit and of all the years we have attended, I will say this year is truly going to be among the most interesting for NGD Systems, our partners and especially our customers. Not only are we able to announce some exceptional news from our company but SNIA will announce that we (the Working group I help co-chair) has finalized formal categories and definitions for the Computational Storage industry.
