ScaleFlux™ and Packet First to Provide Computational Storage in the Cloud


Bare metal cloud instances supercharged for data-driven applications

ScaleFlux, Inc., the pioneer in Computational Storage, announced today
that its CSS 1000 solution is now available through Packet, the leading
bare metal cloud. With access to ScaleFlux Computational Storage in
select Packet configurations, customers can deploy in minutes
ScaleFlux's unique flash technology, dramatically improving performance
for transactional and analytical database applications.

"As deployment ramps for ScaleFlux Computational Storage, our customers
are demanding the flexibility to consume our product both on-prem and in
the cloud," said Iqbal Bhalwani, VP of Global Sales for ScaleFlux. "With
their global reach, strong enterprise experience and flexible deployment
model, we're delighted to partner with Packet to extend the
accessibility of our transformative Computational Storage technology."

Packet, which was founded in 2014 and is backed by SoftBank, provides
automated access to state-of-the-art physical server infrastructure. The
first deployment of ScaleFlux Computational Storage is based on Packet's
m2.xlarge configuration with dual Xeon Gold 5120s, 384GB DRAM, and two
ScaleFlux CSS 1000 U.2 3.2TB drives. Any Linux-based application can
immediately take advantage of the CSS 1000 low-latency Flash storage.
Popular database and big data applications can further benefit from
hardware-accelerated compression and erasure coding.

"We've created an easy-to-use cloud infrastructure experience for
innovators that are looking to get top application level performance by
leveraging cutting-edge hardware-accelerated solutions," said Jacob
Smith, SVP of Engagement and a co-founder at Packet. "Enabling
developer-style access to ScaleFlux's Computational Storage solution
fits right into this theme and we're excited to be the first cloud
provider to offer this technology."


ScaleFlux is a premier sponsor of Flash Memory Summit, held at the Santa
Clara Convention Center on August 7-9. Come visit us in Booth #113
during showcase hours and see a NoSQL database benchmark running
real-time on Packet infrastructure. For information about accessing
