  • Publication number: 20190324969
    Abstract: A storage device, connected to a computer including a processor and first memory, and executing a program, stores data processed under the program. The computer includes a protocol processing unit that accesses data in the storage device, an accelerator that includes an arithmetic unit executing a part of a process of the program, and a second memory storing data, and executes the part of the process. The first memory receives a processing request for processing data, and causes the accelerator to execute a command to process data, corresponding to the processing request for the processing request including a process to be executed by the arithmetic unit. The accelerator requests the protocol processing unit to provide target data indicated by a command received from the program, reads data from the storage device via the protocol processing unit, and stores the data in the second memory. The arithmetic unit executes the command.

  • Patent number: 10353768
    Abstract: A computer including a processor and a memory and a storage device that is connected to the computer and stores data has an FPGA that acquires data and an operation command from a control unit that controls reading and writing with respect to a non-volatile semiconductor storage unit to perform a data operation. The computer generates and transmits the operation command from an access request that has been received to the storage device. The computer receives execution results for the operation command from the storage device, and when the number of execution results for the operation command reaches a prescribed value, instructs the FPGA to detect a soft error, receives all execution results with respect to the generated operation command, and if there is no soft error, transmits the execution results.
