“Our architecture permits tens of thousands of SSDs to be connected together and accessed in a parallel and concurrent way using direct mapping of memory accesses from a local machine to the I/O bus and memory of a remote machine. This feature allows for data transmission between local and remote system memories without the use of operating system services. It also enables a unique linear scalability of SSDs bandwidth and IOPS and consequently allows computation and data access to scale together linearly. This totally eliminates the bottleneck in bandwidth or IOPS and provides optimal dimensions of performance, capacity, and computation with an unmatched flexibility at a fraction of the costs.”
