At NGD Systems, innovation is in our DNA. We were the first company to offer “In-Situ” Processing in a commercially available product and as a result, have been awarded 30 patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; with additional patents pending. Since achieving the first patent in August 2014, NGD has gone on to create the storage industry’s most innovative technology, including the largest capacity and most power-efficient NVMe Computational Storage Drives (CSDs).
The world’s most advanced CSDs, allows customers to use compute to process the data anywhere it is generated, rather than traveling up through the GPU – which can cause analysis to take much longer. The product delivers compute resources to the data to dramatically reduce latency and the power required to deliver information from massive data sets nearly instantly. This enables customers to deliver results, like Hadoop acceleration or AI execution based on their customer facing service level agreements without requiring added hardware.
NGD’s latest patent is an interface compatible with an M.2 connector socket for ultra-high capacity solid state drive which makes it possible to combine the execution of a query with other operations, such as a data-retention scan, in a storage device, when the execution of the query is not time-sensitive. The storage device may be connected to a host and may operate during intervals of time in a power-save mode. When a host receives a query that is not time-sensitive, the query may be stored in the host or in the storage device until the device would otherwise return to a normal operating mode, at which time the query may be executed.
NGD was also awarded its 29th patent for a system and method for adaptive multiple read of not and (NAND) flash, which showcases its focus on both Computational Storage Services (CSSes) as well as standard NVMe SSD needs in a single device.
