Where should IoT data be processed – part 1

Where should IoT data be processed – part 1

I was at FlashMemorySummit 2019 (FMS2019) this week and there was a lot of talk about computational storage (see our GBoS podcast with Scott Shadley, NGD Systems). There was also a lot of discussion about IoT and the need for data processing done at the edge (or in near-edge computing centers/edge clouds).

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

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

According to a recent press release, “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.”

Amazon Acquires Blazing Fast E8 Storage Technology

Amazon Acquires Blazing Fast E8 Storage Technology

The E8 storage technology architecture is the first to break completely with the storage architectures built round mechanical devices. The underlying architecture exploits native NVMe flash drives over a high performance network fabric in a uniquely scalable way. It maps well into the separation of compute and storage of hyper-converged systems, which underlies cloud providers in general and the Amazon IaaS architecture in particular. AWS can integrate the E8 storage architecture and network to provide a highly performant and scalable compute service second to none.
