Micron has just announced their brand new persistent memory solution, which means that the Micron DDR4 NVDIMM technology happens to be their maiden, commercially available persistent memory solution that is capable of accelerating access when it boils down to large data sets. Production of the 8GB DDR4 NVDIMM would mean one can now enjoy a special balance of latency, bandwidth, capacity and cost, achieving ultra-fast DRAM-like access to critical data so that system designers are able better to manage overall costs.
Not only that, persistent memory would mean system architects do not need to sacrifice latency and bandwidth whenever one accesses critical data which need to be preserved. This makes persistent memory the perfect fit when it comes to applications like big data analytics, storage appliances, RAID cache, In-Memory Databases and On Line Transaction Processing.
Tom Eby, vice president for Micron’s compute and networking business unit, had this to say, “Micron is delivering on the promise of persistent memory with a solution that gives system architects a new approach for designing systems with better performance, reduced energy usage and improved total cost of ownership. With NVDIMM, we have a powerful solution that is available today. We’re also leading the way on future persistent memory development by spearheading R&D efforts on promising new technologies such as 3D XPoint memory, which will be available in 2016 and beyond.” [Press Release]
