NGD Systems is Heading to Flash Memory Summit 2019!

Aug 06 2019

Scott Shadley

It’s that time of year again – Flash Memory Summit! As you may know, FMS is a great opportunity for companies, influencers and media working in the storage industry to network. This will be NGD System’s 6 years in a row at the summit and of all the years we have attended, I will say this year is truly going to be among the most interesting for NGD Systems, our partners and especially our customers. Not only are we able to announce some exceptional news from our company but SNIA will announce that we (the Working group I help co-chair) has finalized formal categories and definitions for the Computational Storage industry.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our booth, #618 – here is a snapshot of FMS 2019 for NGD Systems:

Topics We Are Discussing:

·        Product News: Last year at FMS we announced the NGD Newport platform. Well this year we have some exciting updates! More products, more partners, more solutions!

o  Newport SSD: We are adding another arrow in our quiver with our 32TB Newport U.2 SSDs, doubling capacity of the existing Newport U.2 SSD without increasing size.

o  Azure IoT Edge: Additionally, we are announcing that we have embedded the Azure IoT Edge service directly within our SSDs, making us the only vendor to support the service directly within a storage device.

·        New Survey Data: As edge computing workloads have become increasingly more common, we wanted a peek behind the curtain. The third-party study of 300+ storage pros, by Dimensional Research, was designed to understand the adoption and challenges of edge-related workloads. Some key findings include:

  • Not making the grade: Half of all organizations graded their edge computing and storage a “C” or worse, while only 11 percent gave themselves an “A”
  • The edge is here: Over half of all enterprises (55 percent) are deploying edge computing today
  • New Definition for Computational Storage from SNIA:

o  As computational storage is new and redefining the storage industry, I helped co-chair the group to bring new definitions along with starting standards work. We will share more on an upcoming blog discussing the definition and how we landed on it.
