Diablo Debuts All-flash DDR4 Server System Memory

Diablo introduces an all-flash DDR4 server system memory technology that packs four times the capacity of the largest DRAM modules and that is compatible with standard motherboards, servers, operating systems and applications. Diablo replaces expensive DRAM with low cost, high capacity flash.

The company says its Memory1 technology means that same system memory slots that now hold 128 or 384 gigabytes of DRAM memory can house up to four terabytes of capacity.

“Memory1 represents a major evolution in server architecture. The needs of the large-scale datacenter are changing, with a very sharp focus on increasing capability to win the Internet while managing tight constraints on cost and power. The Memory1 platform allows customers to leverage NAND flash as pure system memory in a seamless manner, with no changes to their hardware and software stacks,” said Riccardo Badalone, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Diablo Technologies. “The business impact on datacenter economics and application performance is dramatic. We’ve seen customers envisioning everything from aggressive server consolidation all the way to doubling and tripling individual machine profit. The implications of this technology cannot be overstated.”

Converged Memory Acceleration: Combining DRAM with Flash

In this 3-minute video, Riccardo Badalone, CEO of Diablo Technologies, discusses Converged Memory -- a powerful new concept that combines the best performance attributes of DRAM with the advantages of Flash, including persistence and low cost.

Diablo's NanoCommit technology supports hundreds of millions of transactions per second, with nanosecond latency.

Diablo Technologies Awarded Memory Channel Storage Patent

Diablo Technologies was awarded U.S. patent No. 8,713,379, entitled a “System and method of interfacing co-processors and input/output devices via a main memory system.”

The ‘379 patent describes:

  • A method for connecting non-volatile memory directly to the memory controllers of a processor
  • A learning machine to handle data interleaving/de-interleaving and data scrambling/de-scrambling algorithms for DDR3/4-based memory controllers
  • A method to remap the non-linear DIMM address space back to linear address space used by the driver.

“The introduction of MCS has been deemed as one of the most disruptive breakthroughs in flash memory technology,” said Riccardo Badalone, CEO and Co-founder of Diablo Technologies. “Receiving this patent is another important milestone as Diablo continues to accelerate its strategic growth initiatives. We have significant innovations planned in the MCS roadmap and this validation underscores our commitment to deliver industry-leading solutions.”

In addition, Ottawa-based Diablo Technologies announced the opening of an office in San Jose, California.

  • Diablo Technologies has developed a Memory Channel Storage (MCS) technology that provides tens of terabytes of ultra-fast NAND flash storage in a DIMM form factor, and enables it to interface with the CPU via DDR3 at near-DRAM speeds. The company says its Memory Channel Storage allows for extremely large "big data" sets to be placed entirely within the NUMA system architecture, resulting in real-time processing and analytics. MCS significantly minimizes storage latency and provides a level of predictability that cannot be attained with pre-existing flash storage technologies. With the MCS architecture, systems in big data clusters, such as Hadoop, have access to terabytes of deterministic, ultra-low latency persistent memory.
