SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ScaleFlux, Inc., the pioneer in the deployment of computational storage at scale, announced today that it has added Xilinx to the company’s distinguished list of investors. ScaleFlux leverages the architectural advantages of Xilinx devices to deliver on the promise of moving computationally advanced algorithms to data to optimize infrastructure scaling and efficiency for hyperscale and enterprise data centers.
ScaleFlux ships the industry’s first production qualified Computational Storage Subsystem (CSS) products for customer deployment. Built upon the unique feature set of low-power Xilinx FPGAs combined with Terabytes of 3D NAND flash and state-of-the-art flash controller technology, CSS provides a galvanic solution for scaling compute intensive application infrastructure. CSS is accessed through turnkey Linux plug-in software packages and easily installs into servers through standard PCIe HHHL AIC and 2.5” U.2 drive level form factors.
“Empowered by leading edge UltraScale and UltraScale+ FPGA technology from Xilinx, ScaleFlux is delivering innovative SSD solutions with integrated offloads for computationally intensive tasks across a broad set of applications,” said Manish Muthal, Vice President, Data Center Business at Xilinx. “We are delighted to be a strategic investor in ScaleFlux, and look forward to enabling power efficient computational storage to Data Centers worldwide.”
Inspur, a leading data center and cloud computing total solutions provider and worldwide top 4 largest server manufacturer, has qualified the Xilinx-based ScaleFlux CSS and features the products in its server architecture optimized for data-driven applications (see xeonscalable.inspursystems.com/solution/data-driven-computational-storage-server-solution for details). This offering is a strong proof-point of the wide applicability and market potential for ScaleFlux CSS.
“Hyperscale and enterprise customers look to Inspur to provide them with the most technologically innovative platforms that scale their businesses cost-efficiently and reliably,” said Dolly Wu, VP and GM of Inspur USA Cloud Datacenter Division. “With the integration of ScaleFlux CSS into our portfolio, Inspur provides our worldwide customer base with the most efficient, data-driven server and storage platforms to deploy Aerospike, Hadoop, HBase, KV-Store databases, MySQL, Spark, and many other applications at scale.”
Inspur has fully integrated, tested, and validated CSS on its platform and has declared ScaleFlux a certified partner. ScaleFlux will demo CSS in Inspur’s booth at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations, Management & Data Center Conference on December 4-7, 2017.
CSS provides hyperscale and volume 3D NAND consumers with a complete solution platform integrating value-add computational storage features that can be easily modified or tuned over time.
“Xilinx provides the ideal building blocks for rapid and flexible deployment of computational storage,” said Hao Zhong, CEO and Co-Founder of ScaleFlux. “We are excited to add Xilinx as a valued partner and investor with a shared vision on the future of volume deployment of computational storage.”
