The 3 biggest storage trends of the next decade
I've been watching storage for some 40 years. And each decade has seen accelerating change, and none more so than the the past 10 years. That trend will continue. Here's the biggest trends I expect to affect all who use storage, whether they know it or not.
3 emerging memory technologies that will change how you handle data
A couple of years back, IDC predicted that by 2025 the average person will interact with connected devices 4,800 times per day. Information pouring in from those sensors will fuel machine learning, language processing, and artificial intelligence, all requiring fast storage and more compute horsepower. The next generation of memory technologies will address gaps in today’s storage hierarchy, delivering data where it’s needed for real-time processing. MRAM shows promise at the edge.
When Persistence is a Virtue, MRAM is an Alternative to DRAM and SRAM
Magneto-resistive random access memory (MRAM) is one of those technologies that is often talked about as having the potential to change the computer memory landscape. But in actuality, MRAM has been commercially available since 2006 and is already displacing static RAM (SRAM), dynamic RAM (DRAM), and flash NAND in number of applications inside and outside the datacenter.
Phison Brings Everspin’s 1Gb STT-MRAM To Next-Gen SSD Controllers
The technology that never goes mainstream even after 30 years of advancement is advancing even farther into the enterprise market, thanks to a partnership that pairs Everspin's latest 1Gb ICs with Phison’s next-gen SSD controller.
Everspin Begins Production of 1 Gb STT-MRAM
Everspin recently announced they have begun pilot production of their 1Gb STT-MRAM (Spin-transfer Torque Magnetoresistive RAM) nonvolatile memory, after shipping the first pre-production samples in December. The new MRAM parts are fabbed on a GlobalFoundries 28nm process and are a significant advance in density and capacity compared to their current 40nm 256Mb parts. Production will be ramping up through the second half of this year.
