Steve Fingerhut, President, introduces Pliops at Storage Field Day 21.

The Pliops Extreme Data Processor accelerates storage and reduces cost for nearly any flash workload, increasing performance, expanding capacity beyond in-system drives, adding data protection, and increasing endurance. The company is backed by SoftBank, Intel, Nvidia, Western Digital, and Xilinx. With data continuing to increase, companies are realizing that simply increasing the number of servers can’t keep up. Instead, Pliops aims to accelerate storage performance to allow data processing to scale more efficiently. The Pliops Storage Processor (PSP) accelerates nearly all flash-based workloads, including NoSQL, RDBMS, Analytics, and software-defined storage.
