Pushing Intelligence to Where Data Lives

Today’s architecture requires large data transfers between the CPU, GPU, SSD, and RAM. CPU performance becomes a bottleneck forming a flat ceiling as additional SSDs are added to a server. SmartSSD® Computational Storage Drive (CSD) adds processing power to the SSD itself, drastically reducing data movement while accelerating lightweight computing. This configuration allows processing to happen near the data allowing for immediate insight and concurrent processing of large amounts of information.



The SmartSSD® CSD Platform accelerates a variety of applications including database management, video processing, artificial intelligence layers, and virtualization. Runtimes, libraries, APIs, and drivers can be built into the system using common application frameworks. Download our Product Brief and Solution Brief for SmartSSD® CSD.

Driven by the need to boost performance for applications such as analytics and machine learning, computational storage is an emerging architecture in which data is processed in situ in storage, using processors that are more efficient than x86 server processors at handling certain tasks. Samsung makes a strong claim that it is effectively the godfather of computational storage.

We were the first cloud computing provider to deploy computational accelerators. And the first to utilize containerized environments on bare metal machines. In fact, we hold multiple patents for advancements in cloud computing. But it’s never been about academic achievements. Everything we create is with a singular purpose—to deliver fast, economical solutions that help our clients solve their toughest challenges.
