MEDIA ALERT: NGD Systems to Demonstrate Computational Storage Progress at Flash Memory Summit, August 6-8 at the Santa Clara Convention Center

Sponsored by Businesswire

NGD Systems, Inc.:


NGD Systems, Inc., the world leader in NVMe computational storage, will demonstrate its innovative Computational Storage technology at the Flash Memory Summit this week in Santa Clara, CA from August 6-8. In addition to showcasing its updated Newport product family, NGD will also present a keynote on Tuesday at 2:20 p.m. PT explaining how computational storage solves analytics problems. In addition, there will be a session on Thursday in which NGD will present real customer use cases and discuss the recent progress of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Computational Storage working group.


  • Computational Storage Definition: The Flash Memory Summit takes place this year amidst significant momentum from NGD and in the Computational Storage industry broadly, including major strides from the SNIA Computational Storage (CS) working group. The SNIA CS group recently established formal definitions and terminology to properly categorize computational storage technologies. NGD is one of several prominent members of the SNIA CS group that will be presenting at Flash Memory Summit. NGD’s Scott Shadley serves as co-chair of the group.
  • New Products: NGD will announce support for new edge computing services and a higher capacity drive later this week.
  • Booth and Conference Room Demos: Attendees can stop by Booth 618 to catch a sneak peek at yet another forthcoming product, and to schedule a demo of NGD’s Newport Computational Storage products in their conference room.


“NGD has been very productive since last year’s Flash Memory Summit, introducing several technical innovations and establishing new use cases for computational storage in hyperscale, edge and content delivery network environments,” said Scott Shadley, VP of Marketing, NGD Systems. “In the last year, NGD introduced the industry’s highest capacity NVMe SSDs, debuted those products in general availability, announced a new M.2 form factor, and earned recognition as a Gartner Cool Vendor. We will be demonstrating that technology at the show, along with some new offerings that will be announced later this week.”

: Computational Storage Helps Solve Huge Analytics and ML Problems

Abstract: Everyone wants to get the greatest possible value from the enormous amounts of data they are now collecting. Not only does this require tremendous computing power, but it also requires easily scalable solutions that can handle even more data in the future. Computational storage is a key part of the answer. It brings compute to the edge where the data is stored. This both avoids the need to move large amounts of data around and reduces the strain on facilities such as central processors, networks, and other systems and devices.
