NGD’s official blog that discusses our Product Design, Hardware architecture and Common Problems on the data industry.
I’m Givin’ Her All She’s Got Captain!
In my last post we talked about an experiment with neural networks we ran here at NGD Systems. The goal of this experiment was to test energy efficiency and accuracy of 5 different image detection and object recognition algorithms. These are complex neural networks often run in edge applications. We wanted to test them in three different hardware configurations to see which configuration gave us the lowest power utilization (important for edge devices) while still delivering the highest accuracy possible.
I’m Givin’ Her All She’s Got Captain!
Those immortal words come from Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, Chief Engineer on the starship Enterprise. Who hasn’t heard them uttered at least once in their lifetime in reference to a situation where we just “need more power”? I’ve heard this phrase repeated often in meetings, in social gatherings, and even once after a trip around the race track in an antique car. However, I never expected this 1960’s catch phrase to become synonymous with the value proposition of an NVMe device…….and yet this perfectly describes the real contributions made to Neural Network environments that deploy Computational Storage Drives (also known as CSD’s).
Creating an Edge Computing Business Plan
Edge computing has taken the technology industry by storm and with the advent of 5G, smart/autonomous cars, and content delivery networks (CDN), the edge computing sector will continue to grow. Suffice to say, the edge is no longer about the future – it is here with us today, and while the scope is broadening, the datacenters at the edge become more valuable, allowing data to be intelligently managed and processed in remote locations.
NGD Named to 2019 Storage Products of the Year
We’re excited to announce that we won the Silver Award for TechTarget and Storage Magazine’s 2019 Storage Products of the Year Awards for our Newport NVMe Computational Storage Drives (CSDs).
Starting 2020 with a bang! Series C Funding Accelerates the Production and Deployment of NGD’s Computational Storage Drives
We recently announced the closing of our Series C funding round, bringing in $20 million to accelerate the production and deployment of the world’s first NVMe Computational Storage Drive (CSD). The latest round was led in a round led by MIG Capital with participation from blue chip strategic investor Western Digital Capital Global, Ltd. We were also excited to have participation from existing investors like Orange Digital Ventures, Partech, BGV and Plug-N-Play.
