Research and Markets: How 3D NAND Stacks Up - Alternatives & Status of the Major Players in the Industry

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/843mz6/how_3d_nand) has announced the addition of the "How 3D NAND Stacks Up" report to their offering.

The NAND flash industry is at a technology inflection point. Planar floating gate NAND flash memory is facing fundamental scaling challenges with the upcoming 16nm node the last generation of planar technology. What's next?

Samsung's August 2013 announcement of the production of a 24-layer vertical string V-NAND shows the way forward. Vertical NAND or 3D NAND promises to continue increases in storage capacities and lower cost per bit necessary to enable emerging applications such as solid state drives and cold flash.

In the 2D planar era, the basic underlying floating gate technology (with a few exceptions) was essentially the same amongst all the NAND flash manufacturers. However in the 3D era, all NAND flash memory manufacturers are developing different 3D architectures.

How 3D NAND Stacks Up compares the 3D NAND alternatives and provides an independent view of the challenges, advantages and disadvantages of the various implementations and illuminates the 3D NAND status of the major industry players.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
