NGD Systems Advanced Newport Platform for computational storage recognized for innovation in SSD Flash Technology.

Our panel of judges were impressed with a new approach to In-Situ processing with a solution that can address game changing performance and lower total cost of ownership in addressing big data applications..." - Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program; President of Network Storage Advisors Inc.

NGD Systems, Inc., the leader in computational storage, today announced that it has been recognized as a “Best of Show” winner at the 2018 Flash Memory Summit (FMS) show. NGD Systems was recognized for their leadership in developing computational storage solutions to address the next generation of petabyte-scale data analytics problems, which include real-time analytics, big data and edge computing applications.

“Our panel of judges were impressed with a new approach to In-Situ processing with a solution that can address game changing performance and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in addressing big data applications,” said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc. “We are proud to select NGD Systems for the Best of Show Innovation Award as it has the capability to process massive amounts of data with a next generation intelligent SSD solution.”

The concept of computational storage aims to solve the huge issues associated with moving petabytes of data from storage devices into server RAM for processing. The movement of a petabyte of data can take significant amounts of time, gating results and solutions. By embedding processing capabilities within storage devices such as SSDs, computational storage can eliminate the need for this data movement. The result can reduce the time to process a petabyte of data to a few second for highly parallel, read-intensive analytic applications.

“NGD Systems is honored to be recognized by the industry for our contributions to innovations in storage,” said Scott Shadley, Vice President of Marketing, NGD Systems. “Computational storage represents a paradigm shift in analytics for petabyte-scale data sets. This award testifies to the importance the industry sees in the solution of this problem for a variety of applications.”

NGD Systems has been showcasing the Newport platform and computational storage solutions at Flash Memory Summit, Aug 7-9, in Santa Clara at the Santa Clara Convention Center. These solutions can be found on the show floor in booth 618. NGD Systems will also showcase their solutions in a session on Thursday August 9th (COMP-301-1), as well as NGD Systems CTO, Dr. Vladimir Alves, in an Emerging Technology Keynote with special guest, Dr. Jae Young Do highlighting the results of the partnership with Microsoft Research, on Thursday August 9th at 11:40am.
