What PLiOPS does

On the forefront of the hardware storage evolution, Pliops is on a mission to redefine the way data and storage are managed in data centres, whether they are on premise, in the cloud, integrated with customer products, or built into an ASIC.

  • Data storage solutions

    For Pliops, the ultimate goal is to empower businesses by delivering data storage solutions in multiple forms.
  • Storage accelerator

    Pliops has developed a storage accelerator that enables cloud and enterprise customers to offload and accelerate data-intensive workloads using a fraction of the computational load and power, at a significantly lower cost.
  • Extreme Data Processor

    The Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP) optimises a broad range of workloads and addresses the exponential growth of data storage and subsequent computational processing requirements this has created.
  • 10x performance

    The XDP offers improvements of 10x to performance and 6x to capacity at a 5x cost reduction compared to existing technologies.

Why we invested

As the amount of data produced continues to explode, the problem of processing and storing information becomes an increasing concern. 

Today’s CPU and SSD infrastructure face two great challenges: 

  1. Compute: CPU limitations due to higher computational loads, and 
  2. Storage: Storage limitations as a result of high data amplification. 

Existing solutions to the problem do not fix the root cause and often address the issue by increasing the number of CPUs and SSDs at significant high cost. 

It is becoming increasingly clear that hardware acceleration is the answer to achieving performance gains in the post-Moore’s law era, with solution such as GPUs, IPUs and DPUs. 

Pliops has developed the XDP, which is a key-value (KV) based hardware storage accelerator offering enormous improvements to existing technologies.
