Storage Selection Tool

Flash Accelerator Technology Selection Tool

Do you need a burst buffer? Use our flash acceleration selection tool to find out.

Flash storage is a hot industry technology, and it’s an interesting accelerator for performance-hungry supercomputers. But it can be expensive — so you need a cost-effective way to deploy flash storage using intelligent software that manages the I/O workflow.


Our flash acceleration selection tool uses key performance and architecture criteria to compare traditional SSD-based attached burst buffers and the software-enabled NXD flash accelerator, based on your requirements.
