Intel/Micron's phase change persistent memory technology known as 3D XPoint is undoubtedly the hottest storage technology on the horizon. Intel and Micron envision 3D XPoint causing a revolution not in just storage, but computing as a whole.

3D XPoint will have many storage applications, the most powerful and compelling of which is coming in the form of persistent addressable system memory. Designed to run on the system memory bus, Intel's 3D X-Point DIMM technology moves more data closer to the CPU.

The key feature of this technology is that unlike DRAM, 3D XPoint is a non-volatile storage medium. Intel revealed today, that 3D X-Point technology can currently enable up to 6TB of persistent system memory on a single dual CPU system
