  • Will web servers find a role in the enterprise?

    An emerging class of extremely low-power servers is helping Internet companies and hosting providers to slash their energy bills, and proponents say they could have a role in the enterprise as well.

  • Flash SSDs may give you more bang for your DRAM

    Device and storage vendors are gradually embracing flash SSDs (solid-state disks) as a complement to spinning disk drives, but one executive at this week's Flash Memory Summit sees great potential in turning flash "upside down" as a lower tier of cache behind DRAM.

  • A simple guide to overclocking your CPU

    Overclocking refers to pushing your computer components harder and faster than the manufacturer designed them to go. The initial pitch is seductive: Buy a slower, lower-cost CPU; juice up the clock speed; and presto! You have a cheap, high-end processor.

  • A guide to SSDs: What you need to know

    Chances are increasing that you'll use flash memory for primary storage, but nasty surprises are possible with naive adoption

  • Is NAND flash about to hit a dead end?

    As the technology used to create NAND flash memory continues to shrink, bit error rates and production costs are going up. That's forcing solid-state memory makers to look for alternatives.

  • Is NAND flash memory a dying technology?

    As the technology used to create NAND flash memory continues to shrink, bit error rates and production costs are going up. That's forcing solid state memory makers to look for alternatives.

  • Four tips for deploying SSDs

    While solid state drives offer increased performance, the key to figuring out the role they can play in the data centre is balancing that performance against cost.

  • Why Apple's Wozniak loves flash storage drives

    Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak accepted a position as chief scientist at solid state drive company Fusion-io earlier this year. Wozniak says he took the job because the company is so much like Apple was in its early days and he sees a huge market for solid state storage on PCIe cards.

  • Encryption - the 'cold boot' hack explained

    Princeton University computer security researcher Edward Felten released a study recently demonstrating that encryption keys are only as secure as the RAM that carries them, and that RAM is vulnerable in surprising ways. The upshot? Even turning a computer off may not be enough.

  • SSD disruptive technology in the datacentre

    Solid state disks will start replacing fast hard drive arrays substantially in 2010 due to cost reduction, write performance improvement, better performance and potentially spectacular better energy efficiency.

Featured White Papers


Memory has evolved significantly over the years because of die shrinks, density increases, speed improvements, and other advances inspired by market demands. As a result, technologies such as SDR and DDR SDRAM are becoming outdated in favor of newer architectures. The current DRAM standard is DDR2, which boasts a number of advantages over its predecessors.
