IT Tech Tip: How to Interview an SSD Vendor for Your VDI Deployments

Doug Rollins   |   October 20, 2014   |   Storage

I’m the first to admit it: In the enterprise SSD world, I’m an ”insider”—and in this case, that’s not a bad thing. I work in Micron’s Storage Business Unit, specifically with enterprise SSDs. As an enterprise SSD insider, I wanted to pull back the covers a bit and take a frank look at what SSDs can (and can’t) do to help overcome the challenges faced by so many IT shops on a daily basis.

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.

Lessons from Linley

Ryan Baxter   |   February 21, 2014   |   Events

Though I left Boise the morning of February 5 at 0-dark-hundred to catch a puddle-jumper down to SFO, my morning fatigue soon waned as I found myself standing under bright lights at a Hyatt Regency podium a little after 10 a.m. addressing a room full of engineers and system architects. This was my second appearance at the annual Linley Data Center Conference which was held in Santa Clara, CA February 5-6.  One of several conferences put on by the well-respected research group, this event co...

Accelerating System Bandwidth with Serial Memory Solutions Using Hybrid Memory Cube Technology

Jay Walstrum   |   January 29, 2014   |   All Products

For over 4 years, Micron and Altera have been collaborating on HMC technologies. This ongoing work led to the industry’s first demonstration of a working HMC controller, announced last September and demonstrated at the Supercomputing ’13 Conference in Denver. The working demonstration board consists of one Micron® HMC short reach (SR) device and four 28nm Altera Stratix V FPGAs, each of which has 40 GB/s of bandwidth for 160 GB/s of total bandwidth. This demonstration of Strati...

A Look Back at SC13

Richard Murphy   |   December 13, 2013   |   All Products

I attended this year’s Supercomputing Conference (SC13) a few weeks ago and have finally had a chance to sift through all the news announcements, technical sessions, and meeting notes to provide you with a few highlights. Our very own Todd Farrell gave an overview of HMC technology to conference-goers while Micron and Fujitsu announced the integration of our HMC technology into a supercomputer! I think this is a game-changing system design, which will provide flatter, more powerful memory ...

Buzz from the Linley Tech Processor Conference – HMC and More

Jay Walstrum   |   October 31, 2013   |   All Products

The week before last, I traveled 20 minutes down Highway 101 from Micron’s San Jose offices to Santa Clara to attend the 7th Annual Linley Tech Processor Conference. The small (just over 400 participants), two-day event was like a breath of fresh air compared to some of the more massive conferences that I’ve attended. There were some targeted OEMs and a smattering of industry media, but most of the attendees were real engineers trying to solve real problems. The keynote session cover...

See HMC Live!

Susan Platt   |   September 4, 2013   |   All Products

Our just-announced Altera/HMC reference boards represent an industry first in two ways. Not only are they the industry’s first public demonstration of HMC’s interoperability with FPGAs, but Altera is also the first enabler member of the HMC Consortium to announce product/production support for HMC in their next-generation devices. HMC will be supported by Altera’s Generation 10 portfolio, which  includes both Stratix 10 and Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs. These reference boards g...

The Memory Innovation Everyone's Been Waiting For

Tom Kinsley   |   July 17, 2013   |   All Products

Folks familiar with technology development know that by the time a working group or a company starts talking publicly about an innovation, it’s really just the tip of the iceberg of what may have been years of thought, problem solving, and development of a solution. All of this forward-looking momentum and investment is ultimately intended to solve problems. And the truth is that no one understands the shortcomings of a technology like the people who work in that technology every day...
