The R&D 100 Awards Announces KV-CSD Project as a 2023 Winner!

R&D World magazine honors inventors by identifying the 100 most technologically significant products and advancements each year and recognizing the winning innovators and their organizations. Winners are chosen from an international pool of submissions from universities, private corporations, and government labs.

The prestigious “Oscars of Innovation” honors great R&D pioneers and their revolutionary ideas in science and technology and showcases the latest and best innovations and identify the top technology products over the past year.

One of the winning products is Ordered Key-value Computational Storage Device (KV-CSD), an efficient hardware platform and key-value storage interface created to improve scientific data analytics which can be complex, time consuming and resource intensive.

The KV-CSD revolutionary information storage hardware efficiently records, sorts and indexes supercomputer simulation output to streamline big-data analysis. The technology combines an efficient hardware platform and ordered key-value storage interface to provide an optimized data layout for retrieving data on query and using computational resources on the storage device. This advance drastically reduces unnecessary data movement and slashes the time to scientific insight.

Los Alamos National Laboratory led the joint entry with SK hynix. Dominic Manno directed the Los Alamos team of Jason Lee, Qing Zheng (New Mexico Consortium scientist), David Bonnie, Gary Grider and Bradley Settlemyer.

Congratulations to all the award winners and finalists for this recognition. These 100 winning products and technologies will change industries and make the world a better place in the coming years.
