Transforming Enterprise Computing With Flash as System Memory

SAN JOSE, CA -- Today, data is being generated at an unprecedented rate, creating a wealth of valuable information. As a result, modern businesses have a historic opportunity to transform big data into life-changing benefits for their customers and partners. For many enterprises, instantaneous analysis and real-time decision-making have already become fundamental aspects of their daily business operations. In-memory computing lies at the heart of this transformation, says Diablo Technologies, the innovator at the forefront of developing breakthrough technologies for next-generation enterprise computing.

In recent years, CPU speeds have increased exponentially, providing massive increases in processing power. In-memory data, unlike remotely stored data, is readily accessible to those powerful CPUs, eliminating wasted cycles and enabling full utilization of the processors. Simultaneously, software infrastructure is rapidly evolving to support these critical and emerging requirements. Powerful new databases, data grids, caching platforms, and Big Data processing engines have emerged, facilitating fast in-memory data management and accessibility.

The final remaining barrier to the in-memory revolution is the availability and economics of the memory itself. DRAM has critical capacity and cost limitations that make massive memory deployments both technically and financially infeasible. However, system designers have historically had no choice, because DRAM was the best and only option…until now.

Top 5 Reasons To Use Flash as System Memory:

1. Powers Big Data processing– Using Flash as System Memory enables crucial data to reside in-memory and supports larger data sets. This provides huge benefits for web-scale and analytic applications, where memory capacity constraints typically hamper performance and increase solution cost.
2. Minimizes CAPEX and OPEX – Using Flash as System Memory can provide up to 4X the capacity of DRAM, enabling dramatic infrastructure consolidation. As a result, datacenter deployments require up to 90% fewer servers and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is reduced by up to 70%.
3. Improves data accessibility and performance – By making more memory available to each server, deploying Flash as System Memory eliminates performance bottlenecks that plague traditional solutions. Slow data transfers from storage and high-latency network accesses are minimized or completely eliminated.
4. Integrates seamlessly into IT infrastructures – Via solutions like Diablo's Memory1, Flash can deployed as System Memory within standard servers and with no changes to CPUs, motherboards, operating systems, or applications. Memory1 uses JEDEC-compliant LRDIMM/RDIMM hardware and fits into standard DDR4 memory slots.
5. Is Available TODAY – Unlike other "storage class memory" memory solutions, products using Flash as System Memory are available NOW. They leverage widely available, mature NAND flash and have no dependency on unproven, future memory technologies.

Diablo's Memory1 is the industry's first solution to provide Flash as System Memory. Memory1 enables many terabytes of cost-effective, low-power system memory in a single server.
