Computational storage: What is it and what are its key use cases?

March 20, 2020

Computational storage brings processing power to storage. It’s a response to the idea that conventional storage architecture hasn’t kept up with today’s data storage needs.

Moving data between storage and compute resources is inefficient. And as data volumes increase, it becomes more and more of a bottleneck. As the Storage Industry Networking Association (SNIA) has said: “Storage architecture has remained mostly unchanged dating back to pre-tape and floppy.”
