FMS 2014 - Roger Peene with PMC-Sierra displays Flashtec NVRAM

PMC-Sierra develops a drive that can top ten million IOPS with sub-microsecond latency, NV1616, NV1608, NV1604

Flash Memory Summit 2014 - Roger Peene from PMC-Sierra stopped by to chat about their new Flashtec NVRAM drives. Flashtec provides non-volatile DRAM-like performance with the benefit of NAND persistence. These new drives are capable of over ten million IOPS with sub-microsecond latency.

PMC-Sierra has designed the Flashtec drives to work with industry standard interfaces, such as NVMe, via the PCIe 3.0 x8 connection. This makes integration a snap, with no special BIOS or other support required. These drives can fulfill multiple roles in the datacenter due to the ability to be connected as either a memory or block device. Users can actually provision the drives to use both types of addressing simultaneously.

The new drives come in capacities of 4, 8, and 16 GB. These new drives are very exciting and will enable a new ultra-fast storage class memory tier to accelerate critical applications in scale-out storage and all-flash arrays
