According to a recent press release, “NGD Systems, Inc., the world leader in NVMe computational storage, today announced availability of the first scalable and edge-ready M.2 form factor solution that delivers 8TB with AI-ready computational storage. This latest infrastructure-enabling solution provides unprecedented scalability and capacity in a compact form factor for edge computing, hyperscale and Open Infrastructure (OCP/Open19) environments. Customers leveraging NGD Systems’ breakthrough technology will see measurable improvements in power, cost and physical footprint.”
Richard Mataya, EVP and co-founder of NGD Systems, commented, “Customers are always looking for a way to improve their scale and efficiency. NGD has developed breakthrough technology that’s NAND-flash agnostic, delivers the optimal solution to meet customer requirements and is built on industry-proven Arm technology for our computer resources… NGD looks forward to seeing our expertise in HW design and SW development bring these new innovations to market. We believe this will fundamentally change the way data is stored and processed at the edge for content delivery networks (CDNs) and hyperscale environments.”
The release adds, “The storage ecosystem is evolving rapidly. Until now, hyperscale and edge compute platforms have relied on traditional storage infrastructure that lacks proper capacity and true usefulness. NGD Systems’ Newport Computational Storage Platform and new M.2 offering more than double current available capacity and provide innovative flash resources, all in a 22110 enterprise-class form factor. The platform’s programmable computational storage services (P-CSS) allow support for AI and other application workloads without moving data off the disk. Based on Arm Cortex processors running a 64-bit Linux operating system, the platform provides users maximum flexibility of their compute resources.”
