PLIOPS has developed a storage processor that enables cloud and enterprise data centers to efficiently improve their database infrastructure operations. Storage system experts, who led the Samsung Memory R&D Center in Israel, founded the company in 2017 and now have offices in Israel and the United States. With the growth of social media, billions of users are sharing photos and videos, and the advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning are creating unprecedented amounts of data. Infrastructure expansion has become a must for cloud business enterprises as existing data centers grow much faster than they can handle.

By simplifying several inefficient layers of cloud database storage, PLIOPS has reduced power consumption and data processing load by one-tenth while providing 50 times faster access to data.

“With this investment, we are planning to upgrade our storage processor technology and speed up our efforts to release solutions in the middle of this year.”
