SMART, along with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) NVDIMM Special Interest Group (SIG), is participating in the 2018 Persistent Memory Summit to showcase the industry adoption of persistent memory with two demonstrations.
The first is in the form of JEDEC-standard NVDIMMs. Utilizing the Calypso byte addressable benchmarking tool, SMART will be showcasing its DDR4-2666 16GB JEDEC-compliant NVDIMMs running on a Supermicro® X11DRI 2U Superserver loaded with the Windows Server 2016 operating system. Microsoft's Windows Server has native support for NVDIMMs eliminating the need for vendor-specific drivers. SMART offers a full lineup of NVDIMM-N's from 8GB to 32GB with speeds up to DDR4-2666. NVDIMMs are supported by a wide range of server and storage platforms from Intel®, Supermicro®, Tyan®, AIC, and many others.
The second demonstration highlights SMART's MRAM nvNitro™ NVMe accelerator card which SMART has developed in collaboration with Everspin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRAM). The nvNitro card is a revolutionary MRAM based SSD that has the high speed and high endurance of DRAMs combined with the non-volatility of Flash. Providing ultra-low latency, the nvNITRO accelerator card can increase data throughput and reduce critical storage bottlenecks, unlocking operational value while also satisfying data persistence requirements. In SMART's demo you'll see the performance advantages of the nvNitro NVMe vs an Enterprise SSD while utilizing the Apache Log4J application.
