Astronauts will be less dependent on computing power on Earth

Kioxia sent its solid-state drives to the ISS. The space station now has the first commercial AI edge computing system in space. 

Together with Hewlett Packard, Kioxia, as part of the Spaceborne Computer-2 (SBC-2) program, has updated the HPE Edgeline EL4000 system, which will now use eight XG6 M.2 SSDs with a capacity of 1 TB each, and the server HPE DL360 Gen10 will have a combination of 960 GB RM5 SSD and four 30.72 TB M6 SSDs.

The goal of this project is to enable advanced computing and reduce dependence on mission control on Earth. Simply put, astronauts will be able to process more data directly on the ISS, without sending it to Earth.
