Data Center

Fast, Reliable Non-Volatile Memory

The trend of virtualization and seamless connectivity has become more evident in the cloud computing era. This trend also drives the development of system integration of logic and memory to achieve better system performance. Two approaches can be used to speed up the data access in cloud computing – increase the bandwidth and reduce the latency. IT managers know that integrating a cache increases system performance by reducing latency of I/O requests. Even milliseconds of latency can cost companies millions of dollars in lost revenue. This drives the data center need for faster, greener, cost-effective, and more reliable memory. This is where AGIGARAM® can help.

AGIGARAM provides many features for a data center environment to enable value add functions such as write caching and posting, data deduplication, data logging and journaling, instant-on recovery, and service and maintenance processing. In addition, AgigA Tech's variable partitioning feature allows system architects to design a more efficient memory subsystem. With this feature, an AGIGARAM can be dynamically allocated for non-contiguous non-volatile, volatile and read-only memory partitions. When incorporated into a data center's power management architecture, AGIGARAM can complement the large Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), potentially lowering power, cooling requirements, space requirements, weight and carbon footprint of the overall system.
