AI embedded SSD controller


Friday, August 10, 2018

Marvel has had a busy week with the introduction of a new reference design and NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) converter controller for solid state drives (SSD) in the data center and enterprise markets.

Now, the company has demonstrated how it will provide artificial intelligence capabilities to a range of industries by incorporating Nvidia’s Deep Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) technology in its family of data center and client SSD controllers.

The demonstration took place at this week’s Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. with the goal to highlight how machine learning can help applications accelerate with minimal network bandwidth and no host CPU processing. The proof-of-concept architecture will enable a new era of storage SSD solutions in areas such as cloud and edge data centers, automotive, industrial, communications networking, environmental monitoring, banking and client, Marvell said.

Adding the NVDLA to SSD controllers can improve efficiency, reduce power consumption, maximizing scalability and optimizing distribution of resources in next generation SSDs. Marvell said even large-scale datasets can be fully supported while still reducing hardware investment and operational expenditure.
