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.

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
