CEO Chris Gladwin on Why Ocient Loves NVMe Solid State Drives

NVMe SSD drives have revolutionized the storage stack. By focusing our software on the new parallel characteristics of NVMe drives, Ocient optimized its software to recognize the full performance from this disruption of storage hardware.

Chris Gladwin, CEO and Co-founder of Ocient, delves into the advancements in data analysis and storage, with a focus on NVMe solid state drives and Ocient’s Compute Adjacent Architecture.

He notes that the NVMe solid state is a novel hardware component and the first new addition to computing since its early days. The NVMe interface is parallel, making it a widely adopted standard that can be utilized across different products and optimized for modern solid-state drives.

Gladwin expresses his enthusiasm for these fundamental hardware shifts, calling it the most significant change in computing history.
