Computational storage series: Prizsm – The conventional-quantum chasm & stifling standardisation

Software runs on data and data is often regarded as the new oil. So it makes sense to put data as close to where it is being processed as possible, in order to reduce latency for performance-hungry processing tasks. Some architectures call for big chunks of memory-like storage located near the compute function, while, conversely,… Continue reading Computational storage series: Prizsm – The conventional-quantum chasm & stifling standardisation

Cloud storage everywhere and nowhere

There is no Cloud…  As cloud computing comes of age, we still hear people referring to the popular meme: “…it’s just someone else’s computer”. Many pundits have tried to debunk this as an oversimplification but for organisations starting out on their cloud journey it still holds true. Read More
