Micron Goes After NAND Memory Errors

Micron integrates error management techniques with its NAND products with ClearNAND.

As semiconductor circuity shrinks, data error rates increase, calling for more sophisticated error correction code (ECC). 

ClearNAND eliminates the ECC burden from the host processor through an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and an 8 byte capacity NAND die acting a data collection cache. 

The ClearNAND itself appears as a standard NAND interface to the host processor. 

Micron uses its 25nm MLC process in its manufacture.

Products are available in 2 versions-- Read more...

Accelerate Enterprise Applications with Violin

Violin accelerates demanding enterprise applications with vCache, its first multi-terabyte capacity NFS cache. 

VCache uses Gear6's NFS caching software with Violin's scalable flash memory array technology. Violin says it centralises massive massive memory pools from existing NAS, serving data 10-50x faster than mechanical disks. 

The vCache combines DRAM and flash memory to boost throughput up to 5GB/sec (30000 I/Os per second on file systems). 

The device sits in front of any NFS origin server. 

Violin claims its system caches an entire active database Read more...

Hitachi Aims SSD at Enterprise Market

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies unveils its Ultrastar SSD400S line, its first SSD family-- in 100GB, 200GB and 400 GB models.

Aimed at enterprise-class data centers, the drives feature 2.5" 6Gbit/sec SAS and 3.5" 4Gbit/sec FC interfaces with full duplex.

The line is co-designed with Intel and combines Hitachi's enterprise-class HDD technology with Intel's 34nm single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash technology.

Ultrastar drives reach 535MB/sec sequential read and 500MB/sec write rate, and reach up to 46000 I/Os per second with the SAS interface.

SSD Form Factor Group Works on PCIe

Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, IBM and Intel announce a working group to help OEMs add PCIe interfaces to SSD storage solutions. 

The group hopes its efforts will create a standard that offers up to 2GB/sec throughput between SSD and processor. This is much faster than either SAS (6Gbit/sec) or SATA (3Gbit/sec) drives. 

The new standard incorporates serial-attached SCSI, SATA and PCIe on the same drive chasses, so architecture changes to accommodate new hardware will not be needed. The form factor will build on the current 2.5" standard.

Storage Security for Video Security

Bosch Security Systems releases DSA-N2B40 iSCSI Video Storage Array Series, from the second generation of Bosch Video Storage Arrays engineered as part of the company's global partnership with NetApp.

The DSA-N2B40 assures max protection of recorded video with RAID-4 or RAID-DP technology. RAID-DP technology delivers uninterrupted system reliability even in the event of double-disk failures. Redundant hot-swappable power supplies and cooling fans provide additional safeguards from disk malfunctions. The system also features real-time health Read more...
