SMART Modular Announces Its Next Generation DDR4 NVDIMMs With SafeStor(TM) Technology

New DIMMs Provide a Persistent Memory Solution Targeted for Server Storage Applications

NEWARK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/04/14 -- SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of specialty memory and storage solutions, including memory modules, flash memory cards and other memory and solid state storage products, has announced today the introduction of its next generation DDR4 NVDIMMs. Offering non-volatile memory functionality while utilizing the latest DDR4 DRAM technology, this memory solution is designed to improve application performance and data integrity in server environments.

Unique to these new DDR4-2133 NVDIMMs is SMART's proprietary SafeStor technology, the engine which initiates backup and restore operations upon command from the host controller. The NVDIMM modules also support multiple command delivery options to trigger SafeStor backup during a host-detected power outage and recovery events. The SafeStor engine employs multi-channel fast NAND and high-speed switching circuitry to provide robust backup and restore capability, all while functioning as a JEDEC standard DDR4 RDIMM during normal operation. Temporary power is provided to the NVDIMM during a power loss by a hybrid supercap module, which can be tailored to individual application environments. The new NVDIMMs also feature an end-to-end error checking and correction capability to ensure a high level of data integrity during backup and restore operations.

SMART's new DDR4 NVDIMMs can improve storage and server application performance in several areas:

Persistent Data in Memory (NVDIMM vs SSD)

  • 1000X lower latency for persistent data access
  • 1000X higher throughput for persistent data access
  • No software overhead
  • Runs at HW speeds

In addition to the benefit of being JEDEC compliant, SMART's DDR4 NVDIMMs can be used in servers to store metadata in memory, for application acceleration, check-pointing state for fast sync and restore, and host caching. In storage applications SMART's NVDIMMs are ideal for storing write data for reduced write latency, for fast RAID computation as a block device and as an SSD mapping table.

OEMs are increasingly recognizing the value that NVDIMMs bring to server and storage applications. The growing adoption of NVDIMMs in the industry today is being driven by organizations such as JEDEC and SNIA, both of which SMART is a supporting member. It is also driven by a wide range of OEMs such and Intel®, Supermicro® and others who see the benefits of combining DRAM and Flash in a standard DDR4 DIMM socket to deliver a persistent memory solution.

SMART will be showcasing its lineup of DDR3 and DDR4 NVDIMMs at the Flash Memory Summit being held in Santa Clara, CA, August 5-7, 2014. Demonstrations can be seen during the exhibition at the following locations: SMART's booth #222 or at the Hands-On Lab, "Leveraging Non-Volatile DIMM: Flash at Memory Speeds" on Tuesday, August 5 and Wednesday August 6. See the Flash Memory Summit web site for a full schedule.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
