recent Numonyx milestones from SSD Market History

In June 2009 - Numonyx announced a technology agreement with Samsung Electronics to develop common specifications for Phase Change Memory (PCM) products.

In February 2010 -Micron Technology announced an agreement to acquire privately held Numonyx in an all-stock transaction worth approximately $1.3 billion.

This strengthens Micron’s position as one of the world’s leading memory companies, with a broad portfolio of DRAM, NAND and NOR memory products.

Analyst comment:- from Objective Analysis - "By acquiring Numonyx, Micron is buying the current leader in the NOR flash market - which has been a difficult one for nearly all participants. Leaders Numonyx and Spansion have suffered losses for several years, with Spansion recently turning a profit through a strategy largely focused upon markets for low-density parts used by markets outside of cell handsets, the largest consumer of NOR flash. Micron itself participated in NOR starting in the late 1990s, but abandoned this effort in 2006."

There are hundreds of articles about SSDs on
Here, below, are some examples.
  • RAM Cache Ratios in flash SSDs - it's important to know the underlying RAM cache architecture - even if you're happy with the R/W and IOPS performance.
  • 2010 - 1st Fizz in the SSD Bubble? - even the dogs in the street know this is going to be a multibillion dollar market. Greed will play as big a part as technology in shaping the SSD year ahead.
  • the pros and cons of using SSD ASAPs - auto tuning SSD appliances are a new category of SSD which entered the market in the 2nd half of 2009 to accelerate servers without needing human tune-ups. How can you tell if they are right for you? And how well do they work?
  • the Problem with Write IOPS - in flash SSDs - long established as a useful performance modeling metric - this article explains why some specs are exaggerated when applied to flash SSDs - or predict the wrong results for many common applications.
