The Power of X: Pliops Extreme Data Processor

Pliops Extreme Data Processor
Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP)

The Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP) radically simplifies how data is processed, and SSD storage is managed.

Overcome storage inefficiencies, massively accelerate application performance, and dramatically lower overall infrastructure costs for databases, analytics, machine learning, and more.

Delivered on an easy-to-deploy, low-profile PCIe card, Pliops XDP exponentially increases performance, reliability, capacity, and efficiency to multiply the effectiveness of your infrastructure investments.

Pliops XDP Advanced Features:

  • 6x more capacity than traditional RAID allows for data growth challenges
  • Rapid Recovery – Enable strict availability SLAs
  • Extend SSD useful life beyond hardware refresh cycles with better SSD endurance
  • Greater Resiliency with protection against 2 sequential single-drive failures
  • Eliminate the need for dedicated hot spare with built-in Virtual HotCapacity feature
  • Significant write amplification reduction
  • Ultra-fast rebuild rate for large-capacity drives
  • Full data & metadata protection in the event of sudden power down


Achieve unprecedented performance up to 10x higher for databases, analytics, AI/ML, and more.

Pliops breakthrough data structures and algorithms deliver the equivalent of hundreds of cores of host software.

Accessible via a standard block interface, XDP appears as a block device in the system and will accelerate any application. A direct Key-Value (KV) interface that uses the same APIs as existing software as well as XDP-Rocks, a RocksDB binary compatible API is provided for an easy change to supercharge your software.

With databases like MySQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra, Pliops XDP significantly increases instance density while reducing latency, enabling systems to be pushed to the max.


Get data protection at the speed of flash with ZERO performance penalty.

Traditional data protection solutions require tradeoffs in both performance and capacity. Pliops XDP eliminates these tradeoffs with advanced drive failure protection that maintains constant data availability and eliminates data loss and downtime.

XDP supports multiple single drive failures, and with virtual hot capacity (VHC), there is no need for a hot spare. Because XDP manages the data, only actual data is rebuilt – unlike RAID-based solutions.


Store up to 6x more data with no performance cost.

Pliops XDP supports TLC, QLC, Intel Optane, SATA, SAS, all common flash technologies and SSDs from any vendor.

XDP increases endurance by up to 10x, making it possible to take advantage of high-capacity, low-cost SSDs. Data is efficiently compressed and packed, leaving no gaps, so there is no internal fragmentation.

When using the block storage API, the volume can also be thinly provisioned, enabling the full use of all SSD capacity at maximum performance.


One easy-to-deploy solution for every workload for up to 80% better economics.

Pliops XDP provides value across a broad range of applications with one-solution fits-all acceleration. Pliops XDP makes it valuable and easy to deploy across an entire data center.

Compact yet powerful, XDP gets more out of the existing infrastructure footprint to keep up with organizational data growth and application adoption.
