ScaleFlux Computational Storage Drives (CSD) Overview
ScaleFlux CSDs combine the storage performance and features of PCIe SSDs with integrated compute engines to improve drive and system level performance and costs. The compute engines offload data-intensive tasks that can otherwise bog down the system processor or cause I/O bottlenecks as massive amounts of data are moved from the storage device to local system processors or disaggregated compute nodes.
Scalable and Parallel Processing
By adding compute resources to the drives, processing capacity scales with storage capacity and storage throughput. The compute engines in the drives can be right-sized to match the storage throughput, avoiding the bottlenecks that occur with centralized processing of tasks such as compression, encryption and data preparation for analytics.
- ScaleFlux provides turnkey CSD solutions – no third-party software or firmware required; no development or programming required from our customers.
- ScaleFlux drives install into standard industry slots for 2.5” U.2 drives or half-height, half-length PCIe Add-in Cards.
- ScaleFlux allows users to change certain settings (such as overprovisioning, read priority, and user capacity) to optimize the balance of storage space, performance, latency and endurance for their application. No more having to buy one SKU for your most latency-sensitive application and a different SKU for your most cost-sensitive application.
Update in Place
ScaleFlux drives include programmable resources that allow for in-place updates and future repurposing of those resources to perform new computational tasks.
