Is Your Application Performance Too Slow? Consider Computational Storage

The modern workload set has fundamentally changed the nature of and also how we handle data sets. Previously, critical business applications were typically driven by the processing of large, monolithic databases that were comprised of large files. Today, more and

New eBook: Taking The Load off Networks with Computational Storage

The data center is a series of networks. There are networks that connect servers to users and networks that connect storage to servers. Even within servers and storage there are networks to connect CPU to IO devices like flash drives

Solving the New Storage Performance Problem

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) flash drives thrust storage media from the position of the worst performing component of the data center to the best. The technology’s low latency however, exposes other bottlenecks that went previously undetected. The new storage performance

Impact of Computational Storage on Data Center Design

Previously, Storage Switzerland defined computational storage as an architecture that enables data to be processed within the storage device in lieu of being transported to the host server’s central processing unit (CPU). Computational storage reduces the input/output (I/O) transaction load

ChalkTalk Video: Computational Storage With In-Situ Processing

What is Computational Storage? It only takes a few NVMe flash drives to saturate a server’s PCIe Bus. Network those NVMe flash drives and the situation only gets worse. Computational Storage solves the problem by placing compute capabilities directly on
