Wolfgang Gruener writes that newly patented non-volatile memory DIMM technology could spark an IT revolution.

These patents describe a form of non-volatile RAM, or NVRAM, which is nothing spectacular as the most common type of NVRAM today is Flash memory – a storage technology that retains its contents even when the power supply is interrupted. What makes AgigaTech’s Technology so interesting is the fact that it is NVRAM that comes in the shape of a DDR2 or DDR3 DIMM and combines traditional DDR memory with Flash as well as a data transfer controller and power source.

Initially, the technology will be targeted at RAID storage arrays. Read the Full Story.
