Storage Visions 2015 -One of the most innovative products to ever hit our lab came in the form of the SanDisk ULLtraDIMM (product evaluation here). The ULLtraDIMM places flash on the memory bus to realize incredible performance gains and the lowest latency possible.
Part of the magic behind the ULLtraDIMM resides in the MCS (Memory Channel Storage) Platform that translates and negotiates the data transfer between the flash and the memory bus. Diablo Technologies partners with SanDisk to provide the ULLtraDIMM, and their MCS platform powers the device. Jerome McFarland from Diablo Technologies briefs us on the continuing refinement of the MCS Platform.
