Founded in 2017 and having raised $30 Million in Series B funding early last year, startup Pliops promises 10-fold performance increases in data centre operations, with 100x improved response times thanks to a newly developed storage processor.

The company says its dedicated hardware overcomes the major inefficiencies of software-only storage engines.

By creating silicon-based accelerators for cloud databases and infrastructures, Pliops has taken the same approach employed by AI processors and applied it to more common but no less challenging workloads. At the core of the Pliops solution is a powerful FPGA from Xilinx and high-performance hardware algorithms.

“Hardware acceleration has proven itself as the answer to achieving performance gains in the post Moore’s Law era,” explains Freddy Engineer, corporate vice president and general manager, data centre group, at Xilinx. “By implementing analytics processing in an adaptable compute platform from Xilinx, Pliops is helping to expand hardware acceleration into data intensive tasks with direct access to storage.”
