Digital Cortex Inc. and The Aurora Forge to Develop Next Generation Data Processing Platform

Plans for large-scale data processing platform move forward with funding

ATLANTE, April 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Aurora Forge and Digital Cortex Inc. announced seed funding to build a large-scale data processing platform. Digital Cortex was designed to take advantage of trends in processing technologies, computer storage, smart components, GPUs and a new generation of data processing units (DPUs) capable of performing tasks at very large scale.

“Our platform marks an inflection point in data processing,” said Charlie WardelCEO and Co-Founder of Digital Cortex Inc. “It will enable a paradigm shift by simplifying the hyperscaling of complex data processing.”

Ross Mason, co-founder and CEO of The Aurora Forge, says the investment is worth it. “Digital Cortex will be a leader in ‘real-time processing’, providing businesses with the future data processing tools that will give them an incredible competitive edge in the marketplace. My mentor from Silicon Valley, also an early investor in Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, said of Wardell… ‘He’s the most brilliant programmer I’ve met since Steve Wozniak.'”

As technology rapidly evolves, the need for faster and more efficient data processing methods also increases. The central processing unit (CPU) has been the workhorse behind digital efforts, but today’s computing and data volumes challenge even the fastest processors. The modern world is increasingly becoming a world where data reigns supreme.

Data processing has evolved from serial computing and sequential storage to parallel computing with large pipelines and large amounts of memory. Today, there are options for accelerating computation, graphics processing units, FPGAs, ASICs, and DPUs designed specifically for data processing. Digital Cortex aims to converge these advanced technologies into a single unified platform, creating an ecosystem that simplifies the hyperscaling of complex data processing.

Ricky Caplin, co-founder of The Aurora Forge, said there was a strong need for this new platform. “I am thrilled to invest in Digital Cortex and work with this talented team. Their experience and track record is impressive. Together, we are creating innovative and disruptive technology.”
