Flash Memory Summit 2014 - Diablo stopped by the booth to give us some updates on their progress. Diablo currently provides the MCS architecture which allows NAND devices to communicate via the memory bus. Their MCS technology has been implemented in the UltraDIMM product from SanDisk, which is definitely one of the most anticipated storage developments this year.

 

 

One of the big announcements is a new partnership with Supermicro on their upcoming X9-Series platforms. The addition of another OEM, in addition to IBM, adds another avenue of growth for the MCS ecosystem. Diablo has made great gains in the last year with their original Carbon product, and they are already working on Carbon2. Carbon2 will support the DDR4 bus and bring enhanced functionality, such as NanoCommit technology, which will allow applications to leverage MCS products in a more efficient manner. The move to DDR4 also brings along a reduction in latency, which is impressive considering that the MCS architecture already delivers superb latency.
