Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have designed a device that helps cheap flash storage process massive graphs on a personal computer. The device (pictured here) consists of a flash chip array (eight black chips) and computation “accelerator" (square piece directly to the left of the array). A novel algorithm sorts all access requests for graph data into a sequential order that flash can access quickly and easily, while merging some requests to reduce the overhead of sorting.
