It hasn’t been 48 hours our publishing of PMC’s newest NVRAM release and we were able to get some first hand shots, and also see it in action. Relatively new in popularity as of late, the NVRAM takes advantage of DRAM performance in order to speed up system data transfer.
The PMC FlashTec NVRAM is capable of unlimited endurance (as it uses DRAM memory), up to 10 million IOPS, and has flash based backup where a sudden power loss results in no loss of data whatsoever. This was demonstrated at the show and is fully described in our first article.
Not so familiar to us true SSD fans, memory configurations of the NVRAM ar 4, 8 and 16GB. It is a PCIe 3.0 x8 device with a operational life cycle of 5 years and is fully NVME compliant.
As impressive as the IOPS and throughput of this live demo were, the latency was a true display of the capabilities of this product. Without a doubt, it was the highlight of the show and many were pushing to get close enough for shots, something we haven’t seen in a while. Stay tuned for a great deal more on this device in the near future!
