ReThink Storage Class Memory with ReRAM
10x Faster than NAND-based NVMe SSDs; 25x Faster than NAND-based NVDIMMs
Based on the breakthrough ReRAM technology, Crossbar’s memory IP cores enable high performance, great endurance, high density, low energy storage solutions, such as NVMe SSDs, NVDIMMs and custom solutions. Crossbar is enabling a new wave of storage innovations for Data Center, Cloud computing and Hyperconverged Infrastructure.
Compared to existing Flash-based NVMe Solid State Drive (SSD) solutions, Crossbar ReRAM technology drastically simplifies the NVMe controller and firmware design by reducing overall internal data management, delivering superior performance at the system level. ReRAM over-write capability without erase operation, small page support and inherently low latencies enable storage architects to develop NVMe SSDs at maximum 10us random read and write latency (10x better than NAND flash SSD), 6.4M random read and write IOPS@512B (10x better than NAND flash SSD).
The ReRAM based NVMe SSD solutions reduce the performance gap between data storage and CPU processing, and serve as the perfect Flash-based SSD replacement with greater endurance, reliability and low power consumption. ReRAM storage solutions are ideal for cloud computing, data center, mobile computing and artificial intelligence applications.
The ReRAM-based NVDIMM solution is a non-volatile persistent memory solution that combines ReRAM memory chips, controller, firmware into a single memory subsystem. The solution delivers superior performance and non-volatility, enabling instant recovery if power is interrupted. NVDIMMs operate in the standard DRAM memory slots of servers to handle persistent data access at low latency, and high IOPS performance.
Thanks to the intrinsic superiocharacteristics of ReRAM over Flash, NVDIMMs can be dramatically simplified with optimized controller and firmware design. They deliver superior performance with maximum 4us random read and write latency (25x better than NAND flash SSD), 24M random read and write IOPS@512B (32x better than NAND flash SSD), greater endurance, reliability and low power consumption. ReRAM based NVDIMMs are ideal for cloud computing, data center, mobile computing and artificial intelligence applications.
Crossbar will assess customers’ requirements and provide custom solutions to address their product commercialization.
