Catalina 2 NVMe U.2 SSD with In-Situ Computational Storage
U.2 – 2.5-inch SFF available in 4TB, 8TB, 16TB
The CAT-2 with in-situ processing is built to address many key issues in the programmable storage and content delivery markets that currently limit application performance and scaling. The CAT-2 processes the data where it resides in the SSD without using host resources to ensure more efficient use of storage. This approach, which is managed through standard APIs, affords significant flexibility for the developers of “big data” applications.
CAT-2 utilizes a patented breakthrough architecture which permits it to provide in-situ processing, high capacity, and low power consumption for a variety of target markets. CAT-2 uses the NVMe 1.3 protocol on a PCIe Gen3x4 interface, while the NGD Systems proprietary QoS technology manages power, flash endurance, and latency characteristics. Starting with a base of 3D TLC flash media utilized as the primary storage element enabled by a proprietary LDPC error correction capability, ensure complete platform protection. The product is offered in a PCIe Add-In Card (AIC) and U.2 form factor and is warranted for 3 years at up to 3 drive writes per day.
