Persistent Memory Special Interest Group


The Persistent Memory Special Interest Group (PM SIG) mission is to accelerate awareness and adoption of Persistent Memory (PM) and Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Modules (NVDIMMs) for computing architectures. Check out the NVDIMM Infographic!


  • Educates on the types, benefits, value, and integration of Persistent Memories
  • Communicates usage of the NVM Programming Model developed to simplify system integration of current and future PM technologies
  • Influences and collaborate swith middleware and application vendors to support Persistent Memories
  • Develops user-perspective case studies, best practices, and vertical industry requirements
  • Coordinates with industry standard groups and promote industry standards related to PM and NVDIMM
  • Synchronizes and communcates a common Persistent Memory taxonomy

The Persistent Memory SIG is a member communiity under the SNIA and the Compute, Memory, and Storage Initiative (, which provides logistical and promotional support for the SIG.

The Persistent Memory SIG is co-chaired by Arthur Sainio of SMART Modular Technologies and Raghu Kulkarni of Intel Corporation, and includes SNIA member companies AMD, ARM, Calypso Systems, Dell, Futurewei Technologies, HPE, IBM, Intel, Kioxia, Micron, Nyriad, Samsung, Silicon Motion, SK hynix, SMART Modular Technologies, Western Digital, and Xilinx.
