Diablo and SanDisk receive award for ULLtraDIMM and MCS Technology

The disruptive ULLtraDIMM from SanDisk and Diablo continues to impress, winning an award at Storage Visions 2014 (NASDAQ:SNDK)

Diablo and SanDisk received Storage Visions 2014 Visionary Product Award, in the Enabling Professional Storage Technology category, for the ULLtraDIMM. The ULLtraDIMM adds NAND onto a DIMM-type module, leveraging Diablo IP for translation and SanDisk's Guardian Technology for NAND management.

The Diablo MCS (Memory Channel System) technology creates the pathway that allows NAND to be used as either in-memory compute space or block-level storage. This allows for two different usage models that present unprecedented speed and density from flash storage. We were lucky enough to speak with the CEO and co-founder of Diablo, Riccardo Badalone, at this year's Storage Visions conference.



This new technology is very disruptive, and SanDisk and Diablo aren't the only companies eyeing this type of product. They currently are in the lead, with working silicon and hardware already in the validation stages. We expect this technology to be a game-changer of enormous magnitude, and will help to enable the emergence of the all-flash datacenter. We spoke with Jon Scaramuzzo, the SVP and GM of the Enterprise Storage Solutions group at SanDisk, in this interview where he outlines the penetration of flash into every storage tier of the datacenter.
