ScaleFlux™ and Packet First to Provide Computational Storage in the Cloud

August 3, 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 3, 2018--ScaleFlux, Inc., the pioneer in Computational Storage, announced today that its CSS 1000 solution is now available through Packet, the leading bare metal cloud. With access to ScaleFlux Computational Storage in select Packet configurations, customers can deploy in minutes ScaleFlux’s unique flash technology, dramatically improving performance for transactional and analytical database applications.

“As deployment ramps for ScaleFlux Computational Storage, our customers are demanding the flexibility to consume our product both on-prem and in the cloud,” said Iqbal Bhalwani, VP of Global Sales for ScaleFlux. “With their global reach, strong enterprise experience and flexible deployment model, we’re delighted to partner with Packet to extend the accessibility of our transformative Computational Storage technology.”

Packet, which was founded in 2014 and is backed by SoftBank, provides automated access to state-of-the-art physical server infrastructure. The first deployment of ScaleFlux Computational Storage is based on Packet’s m2.xlarge configuration with dual Xeon Gold 5120s, 384GB DRAM, and two ScaleFlux CSS 1000 U.2 3.2TB drives. Any Linux-based application can immediately take advantage of the CSS 1000 low-latency Flash storage. Popular database and big data applications can further benefit from hardware-accelerated compression and erasure coding.

“We’ve created an easy-to-use cloud infrastructure experience for innovators that are looking to get top application level performance by leveraging cutting-edge hardware-accelerated solutions,” said Jacob Smith, SVP of Engagement and a co-founder at Packet. “Enabling developer-style access to ScaleFlux’s Computational Storage solution fits right into this theme and we’re excited to be the first cloud provider to offer this technology.”
