Chuck Sobey of Channel Science provides a computational storage update in this presentation delivered at Flash Memory Summit 2020. Computational storage is a new way to approach large-scale problems by shifting some compute power to the storage. Some data processing can then be performed close to where the data resides, avoiding time-consuming transfers of large data sets and reducing the burden on central computing facilities. Use cases include database, big data, AI/ML, and edge applications. The framework for computational storage is driven by SNIA and the NVM Express standards groups. The pressure of ever-increasing amounts of data and the need for applications scalability should lead to a big future for computational storage.
