Intelligent storage systems were an active area of research in later half of last decade. The idea was to improve the throughput of data intensive applications from database and image processing domains by offloading computation onto the active storage elements and hopefully reducing unnecessary data traffic between data sources and compute nodes. With the advent of Object-based Storage Devices (OSD) the authors feel that the time is appropriate to have a relook at notion of intelligent storage.
