  • editor's comments:- August 2011 - Before it was acquired by Cadence (in June 2010) Denali used to market the FlashPoint Platform - a building block for designing PCIe SSDs. They also used to publish an excellent blog - Denali Memory Report.
will it work any better this time? - consumer bybrids
Editor:- June 3, 2010 - Denali Software is named as a possible savior of the hybrid drive concept in a white paper by Objective Analysis - Flash Cache is Back (pdf) - which predicts all computing platforms will soon employ a cache layer between the HDD and the DRAM

Author Jim Handy says projections from notebook SSD makers that SSDs would already have replaced tens of millions of HDDs were over optimistic and may "never happen". Instead he says a flash cache, supported by a properly designed SSD ASAP controller "will provide near-SSD performance at near-HDD prices".

Early implementations of such flash cache schemes - cited in the article - didn't work properly.
