Pliops demonstrates revolutionary storage processor

Technology innovator Pliops has conducted the first public demonstration of a new, patent-pending technology that accelerates database storage functions.

The Pliops Storage Processor enables cloud and enterprise customers to offload and accelerate data-intensive workloads using just a fraction of the computational load and power consumption.

The company has been demonstrating the technology at the Flash Memory Summit in California highlighting the technology that is able to accelerate storage engine performance per core by over 60x. In the first application of this foundational technology, MySQL transactional performance was increased by 7x and the flash storage required was reduced by up to 50% over MySQL compression.

Focused on making databases run faster and more efficiently, Pliops has created a new architecture that looks to address the major inefficiencies of software-only storage engines via a dedicated hardware product.

Pliops' solution solves the scalability challenges raised by the cloud data explosion and the increasing data requirements of artificial intelligence and machine learning applications. The company says that it is on a mission to enable the accelerated data centre, and has received investment from Softbank Ventures Asia, Intel Capital, Western Digital, Xilinx, and Mellanox.

“Accelerated data centers, where dedicated hardware engines will run data-intensive workloads, are the best long-term solution to the problems caused by skyrocketing data volumes and slowing compute performance growth,” noted Steve Fingerhut, president and chief business officer for Pliops. “While the industry attempts to address this challenge by adapting existing technologies, we’re taking an entirely different approach. We started with a clean slate and created a new architecture and data structure that redefines the storage primitive – and enables a whole new world of compute.”
