GlobalDots and ScaleFlux Announce the Solid State Drive (SSD) Revolution in Database Computing

It’s time to deploy an affordable infrastructure that breaks through existing server & storage paradigms.

Berlin, Germany: GlobalDots, a leading web performance and cloud security system integrator announced today a partnership with ScaleFlux, Inc., the pioneer in the deployment of Computational Storage at scale, to deliver products that greatly optimize infrastructure efficiency and scaling for hyperscale and webscale clients worldwide.

ScaleFlux ships the industry’s first production qualified Computational Storage Subsystem (CSS) products for customer deployment. CSS alleviates expensive CPU processing limitations by bringing computationally advanced algorithms straight to the data, simultaneously defeating storage and compute bottlenecks. The combination of terabytes of 3D NAND flash, reprogrammable low-power FPGAs, and state-of-the-art flash controller technology enables powerful validated acceleration for an increasing list of data-driven applications:

Efficiency Advantage of CSS vs. Standard NVMe:

  • 2.7x better transaction rate with Aerospike
  • 3.5x better transaction rate with PostgreSQL
  • 3.6x better flash capacity utilization with MySQL
  • 2.3x faster queries with Vitesse Data Deepgreen Db
  • 2.2x better KV-Store write throughput with RocksDB
  • 2.4x better transaction rate with Apache HBase
  • 1.7x more jobs completed (vs. HDD) with Hadoop
  • 1.7x more jobs completed with Apache Spark

CSS products have been shipping to customers worldwide to proven success. Easily installed into servers through standard PCIe HHHL AIC and 2.5” U.2 drive level form factors, CSS creates immediate impact in datacenter scaling capability and cost reduction. ScaleFlux’s strategic partnership with GlobalDots will carry this momentum to the waiting hands of a widespread audience.

“It is my pleasure to announce that GlobalDots is now a proud partner of ScaleFlux. ScaleFlux has an amazing product that will dramatically change how we approach database computing, and this partnership offers us a way to bring them closer to more satisfied end-users.” said Thorsten Deutrich, VP Sales of GlobalDots.

What makes GlobalDots so unique is the fact that they work with practically every vendor in the industry and specific verticals. This enables their team to have an in-depth knowledge of every specific technology and solution – knowledge, real-world scenarios and use cases that internal IT teams often lack due to complexity and time needed to learn, analyze, test, deploy and monitor in production environments.

GlobalDots will accelerate the proliferation of Computational Storage with its worldwide customer base whose business is dependent on data-driven applications.  We are looking forward to partnering as we jointly deliver innovative solutions that change the way both compute and storage infrastructure scales and enable new revenue generation opportunities for our customers,” said Thad Omura, EVP Marketing for ScaleFlux.

GlobalDots and ScaleFlux will present Computational Storage Subsystem 1000 Series at the upcoming CloudFest in Rust, Germany from March 10-16th.
