MAX Data: Optimising Application Performance with SCM

As the slowest part of the computing architecture, persistent storage is in a constant battle to improve performance.  That goal has moved from being focused on throughput a few decades ago to one of reducing latency as low as possible.  To that end, NVM Express and NVMe over Fabrics have become an area of focus… Read more »

What are Storage Class Memory (SCM) and Persistent Memory (PM)?

Moore’s Law continues to drive innovation in the speed of computing.  In particular, processors and memory continue to push the boundaries of latency and performance.  Persistent storage is always playing catchup in a game where a single I/O to disk is aeons of time compared to a load/store from DRAM.  Flash storage improved latency and… Read more »
