Data and application workloads continue to grow at exponential rates, but processor performance still lags.
Moore’s Law is slowing down, and CPU performance no longer doubles every two years. Experts believe computers will reach the physical limits of Moore’s Law at some point in the 2020s. So, although SSDs are getting cheaper, denser, and faster (especially NVMe SSDs), CPU limitations due to high computational loads and high data amplification create storage I/O bottlenecks in today’s data center infrastructure. Many companies address this issue by applying more CPUs and more SSDs, leading to increased capital and operating expenses, without solving the underlying problem.
Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP) delivered on an easy-to-deploy, low-profile PCIe card that radically simplifies the way data is processed and SSD storage is managed to exponentially increase performance, reliability, capacity, and efficiency to multiply the effectiveness of infrastructure investments.
