Viking Modular Adds To Their DIMM Portfolio

Viking Modular Adds To Their DIMM Portfolio

| Storage News | Posted: Jan 5, 2011 12:00 am

CES 2011, Las Vegas - Viking Modular attended Storage Visions and today Cameron and I payed a visit. At the booth Viking displayed their SandForce based DIMM SSD that uses power from the memory slot to power the drive. We are still waiting for a pair of these drives to show up for our SR2 build but they are coming.

New to the line up is the new DIMM memory module that is not an SSD but an actual memory module but the punch line is this module comes with its own battery back up add on. The battery appears to be a pair of capacitors that will allow for full time protection even in the event of a major power outage or hiccup in the system.

Viking is also adding to their innovative SSD lineup and showed off a pair of new, extremely small SSDs. These drives are designed for the smallest systems where space is a premium. On the left is a new add in part with a SATA interface. The unit on the right is designed for on board installation.
