A year ago the Fusion-IO folks in SanDisk made the first attempt to define software-defined memory (SDM, here). but a lot has changed since then. 2015 was a crucial year for the standardization of non-volatile DIMM (NVDIMM) components. There have also been several announcements of new storage-class memory devices like Intel & Micron 3D-Xpoint, HP & SanDisk RRAM and Sony & Viking ReRAM.
SDM should have been called SDSM, because it [...]
Non-volatile DIMM (NVDIMM) cards are on the rise. They have been around for a few years, but were a complex technology to work with until recently. We barely got it to work on DDR3 in early 2013. Fortunately, thanks to Intel, JEDEC, ACPI, SNIA and others, the NVDIMM hardware ecosystem is finally reaching maturity.
Maturity via standards was presented in the Flash Memory Summit earlier this month (Aug. 2015), when a [...]
So, what is Plexistor all about?
To be honest, I’m not really allowed to say, because we haven’t announced our product yet…
Having said that, we have presented in the Flash memory summit last week some performance results that indicate that we have been writing software for storage memory technologies for quite some time now.
Storage memory, Storage-class memory (SCM), Next-generation NVM, and Persistent Memory (PM) are different names for emerging hardware technologies, [...]
Trust this blog to elaborate on what you can gain from emerging Non-Volatile Memories. Meanwhile, with Plexistor being is stelth mode, you will have to settle for what I presented at the Flash Memory Summit earlier today
