Abstract: 

As data sets continuing to grow, 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.
