SanDisk and HP announced a long-term partnership to collaborate on a new technology within the Storage Class Memory (SCM) category.
In a press release, the two companies said the partnership will center around HP’s Memristor technology and SanDisk’s non-volatile ReRAM memory technology their expertise in respective fields. The two companies also will partner in enhancing data center solutions with Solid State Drives (SSDs).
“Our partnership to collaborate on new SCM technology solutions is expected to revolutionize computing in the years ahead,” said Siva Sivaram, executive vice president, memory technology, SanDisk.
The technology is expected to be up to 1,000 times faster than flash storage and offer up to 1,000 times more endurance than flash storage. It also is expected to offer significant cost, power, density and persistence improvements over DRAM technologies.
The two companies decided to work together keeping in view of the massive streams of data generated by the convergence of social media, security, mobility, big data analytics, cloud and the Internet of Things.
“The onslaught of data facing enterprises will continue to be a challenge for the foreseeable future. We are excited to be working with SanDisk as they share an understanding of the significance of this challenge, and more importantly share a vision that the solution lies within Memory-Driven Computing,” said Martin Fink, Executive Vice President and HP Chief Technology Officer.
In August, SanDisk introduced, SSD Concierge Service, the first SSD upgrade service with live video support for SanDisk solid state drive (SSD) installations. The new service is designed to simplify upgrades for consumers of all technical backgrounds.
