At the Whiteboard with Ocient: Compute Adjacent Storage Architecture™

Joe Jablonski, Ocient’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, highlights the Compute Adjacent ArchitectureTM in the company’s data warehouse and analytics software.

This technology locates storage next to compute on NVMe SSDs for optimal speed. NVMe drives are state-of-the-art hard drives that connect directly to the CPU via the PCI bus, providing parallel access and over 1 million IOPS and 54 gigabits per second of throughput.

The PCI bus technology has improved, allowing for more drives to be connected to the processor, with a 300% increase over time. Ocient’s server platform uses a dual processor setup for cost-effective analytics, and with the latest PCI 5 and Sapphire Rapids or AMD Genoa platform, it can handle up to 8 terabits per second. This greatly improves data warehouse performance, with an 80X increase compared to older spinning disk systems.

Ocient’s Compute Adjacent Architecture is crucial for quick data retrieval and processing, and drives the performance of the data warehouse. With 800 terabits per second being processed across all platforms, Ocient’s solution provides a chance to scale data analytics and make informed decisions.
