M600 SSD’s Dynamic Write Acceleration Boosts Performance and Value

Jon Tanguy   |   September 16, 2014   |   Storage

Micron M600 SSD for Client Computing and Ultrathin Laptops

Along with our release of the new M600 SSD for the client computing market, we are very excited to introduce a new feature called dynamic write acceleration. Dynamic write acceleration is the most efficient method of managing the SSD’s NAND media; it optimizes performance while delivering maximum value to the end user. In this post, I’ll provide a little background on what it does and why it’s needed.

Micron 16nm NAND Awarded Semiconductor of the Year

Naga Chandrasekaran   |   July 31, 2014   |   Storage

Last week, Ramin Ghodsi and I had the honor of accepting TechInsights Semiconductor of the Year award on behalf of our process and product development teams. It’s the second time in a row our NAND process technology has won this award, and marks an important third-party recognition of our cell designs. TechInsights does an exceedingly thorough analysis of the semiconductor design—down to the cellular level—and chooses winners based on the innovation in the design and its impact on the marketplace.

Q&A: Three Keys to Choosing the Right Server Flash

Corporate Communication   |   June 20, 2014   |   All Products

If your data center applications are struggling to keep pace with user demand, you may be looking to SSDs to close the gap.  While SSDs will generally offer a host of performance advantages over hard disk drives (‘HDDs’), not all SSDs are the same, and neither is the NAND flash inside them.

I recently did a webinar with Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst George Crump during which we discussed this very topic – how do we choose the ‘right’ solid state storage for data center applications?

Partnering With Freescale to Enable Internet of Things

Wendy Lee-Kadlec   |   April 28, 2014   |   All Products

Over the past few years, “Internet of Things” (IoT) has become an industry buzz word. Not surprisingly, IoT was also the main theme of the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) held earlier this month in Dallas, Texas. FTF brings together embedded designers, as well as innovation enablers, like Freescale and Micron, to discuss current industry topics. This is my fifth year attending FTF—and it turned out to be one of the most exciting events yet! ...

Not All SSDs Are Created Equal: Optimizing Performance Through Flash Management

Doug Rollins   |   July 9, 2013   |   All Products

To get the most out of solid state storage, you must be privy to a little secret: not all solid state drives (SSDs) are created equal. Optimal SSD performance and reliability rely heavily on all of the drive’s parts—the controller, the firmware, and the NAND Flash itself—working and playing nicely together. Well-thought-out and strategic Flash management helps this kindergarten lesson become a storage reality.  As George Crump, lead analyst for Storage Switzerland, d...

Dean's List: ISC'13 Part 3

Dean Klein   |   June 27, 2013   |   All Products

Guten Tag on my last day at ISC in Leipzig. My panel on Memory System Design took place Thursday morning. My three panelists—Dr. Jae Jeong from Samsung, Todd Farrell from Micron, and Roger Pearce from Lawrence Livermore National Labs—each presented their views on opportunities in the design of memory systems. Given that we were the first session on the morning of the last day, I was pleased with the attendance. While it may seem to us that Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) has reached the cri...

Tame the Boot Storm

Janene Ellefson   |   May 14, 2013   |   All Products

Minimize the Impact of Boot Storms

If you manage a network of virtual machines, you’ve probably experienced the negative effects of a boot storm too many times. These virtual storms can occur when a large number of users log in to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system simultaneously. If the VDI system employs traditional storage, like hard disk drives (HDDs), bandwidth gets overwhelmed quickly. Slow boot times and reduced productivity ensue, often resulting in frustrated and less-efficient users. Our ultra-high band...

Why Latency Matters

Janene Ellefson   |   April 30, 2013   |   All Products

Latency Matters

When you think about system performance, you have to think latency. In an IT environment, latency affects everything—from efficiency and throughput, to customer satisfaction and operating costs. We are confident that our SSDs can help solve IT latency issues. This video emphasizes the importance of latency using more general, everyday situations.  It’s not often we get to laugh at latency problems. For countless businesses—especially cloud and data center environments&md...

Contemplating the Future of Computing

Richard Murphy   |   April 30, 2013   |   All Products

I spoke Friday at the IEEE Workshop on Microelectronics and Electron Devices (WMED) in Boise about a memory-centric vision for the future of computing. This was my first time at this workshop, and I was very impressed by two things: the high caliber of the talks and the fact that the workshop had strong representation from students at all levels. Coming from the high-performance computing community—which tends to be a somewhat more distinguished, somewhat greyer crowd—seeing a strong...

e•MMC—An Ideal Solution for Memory-Hungry Automotive Applications

Giorgio Scuro   |   February 12, 2013   |   All Products

Many car buyers today care more about the infotainment technologies embedded in the dashboard than what’s under the hood. Users want to be connected and have convenient access to their personal content anywhere, anytime, on all of their devices. Their vehicles become just another node in the network, an extension of the user’s digital and social lifestyle. A “connected” car is safer, more comfortable, and more energy-efficient, equipped with early access to important info...
