Who's who in SSD? - BeSang

by Zsolt Kerekes, editor - - September 26, 2016

I admit that I completely missed the first 13 years of BeSang's presence in areas which may have intersected with the SSD market.

But I woke up and started paying attention in June 2016 - when I saw the best competitive analysis which I had upto that time about Intel / Micron's (at that time fluff-ware) 3DXPoint technology.

Aha! - I thoughtt - this CEO really seems to understand the semiconductor technologies in this market.

BeSang is a company which is worthy of more industry attention.

when you can make a terabyte of virtual DRAM from a terabyte flash SSD using the heat pump of software - what should you do?
should we set higher expectations for memory systems?

what were the big SSD ideas which emerged in 2016?
"Storage Class Memory

As storage class memories are emerging, the memory hierarchy will be changed. NOR-based NVDIMMs, such as 3D Super-NOR and 3D XPoint, will replace DRAM and SSD at the same time.

Also, software-based NVDIMM-P, such as HybriDIMM, will come to the storage class memory market. Storage class memories mingles fast-but-expensive volatile, and slow-but-inexpensive non-volatile memories together. As a result, it will significantly boost system performance at low cost and create huge market opportunities."

placing 3D XPoint claims in context
Editor:- June 23, 2016 - If you've been trying to renconcile Intel / Micron competitive claims about 3D XPoint compared to flash and DRAM - it has been problematic due to absence of adequate hard data.

A new video - 3D XPoint, reality, opportunity, competition - by Sang Yung Lee, President & CEO - BeSang - places the known features of 3D XPoint into context, and looks at the limitations, manufacturing costs and best likely application roles for this new technology.

If you're interested in analyzing the impact of DIMM wars in your future plans - then the 12 minutes you spend listening to the narrative in this video will remove any mysteries of how the IM technologies could fit into the pattern of adoption and just as important - you'll see where 3D XPoint is unlikely to be the best fit technology too. the video
