NVDIMM Special Interest Group

The NVDIMM Special Interest Group (NVDIMM SIG) has been formed to accelerate awareness and adoption of Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Modules (NVDIMMs) in the marketplace by:

  • Providing education on how system vendors can "design-in" NVDIMMs.
  • Communicating existing industry standards, and areas for vendor differentiation. 
  • Helping technology and solution vendors whose products integrate NVDIMMs to communicate their benefits and value to the greater market. 
  • Developing vendor-agnostic user perspective case studies, best practices, and vertical industry requirements to help end user customers understand how products and solutions can meet performance, cost, and efficiency goals.

The NVDIMM SIG is an open community under the SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative (www.snia.org/forums/sssi), which will provide logistical and promotional support for the SIG.

The NVDIMM SIG includes vendors AgigA Tech, IDT,  Inphi,  Intel, Micron, Microsoft Corporation,  Netlist,  Paper Battery, Pericom, Samsung, SK Hynix,  SMART Modular Technologies, and Viking Technology. 

On this page, you will find news, event listings, webcasts, FAQs, white papers, and articles about NVDIMMs.

Your feedback is welcome and encouraged.  If you would like to participate in SIG activities, email nvdimmsigchair@snia.org.

SNIA TUTORIALS

Storage in the DIMM Socket
This tutorial focuses on how IT managers have begun seeking out new ways for flash to be deployed in the data center in order to take greater advantage of the performance and latency benefits. With traditional interfaces such as SAS, SATA and PCIe already taking advantage of flash and deployed, the focus has shifted to non-traditional interfaces in order to further penetrate current infrastructure. This has led to the emergence of new solutions that leverage the DDR3 interface, utilizing existing DIMM slots in server hardware

WEBCASTS

NVDIMM - Persistence Pays
Non-Volatile DIMMs, or NVDIMMs, provide a persistent memory solution with the endurance and performance of DRAM coupled with the non-volatility of Flash. This webinar provides a general overview of this emerging technology and why the industry is starting to take notice. You will learn what an NVDIMM is, how it works, where it fits and why every system architect should consider them for their next generation enterprise server and storage designs.  View on demand HERE.
