Steve Moyer Talks About Microns Open Source Heterogeneous Memory Storage Engine Project

By Rebecca Lewington - 2020-05-20

Micron recently announced a new open-source project, the heterogeneous-memory storage engine, or HSE. HSE was designed to maximize the capabilities of new storage technologies to boost performance and drive endurance. I wanted to learn more about the people behind the technology, so I sat down with Steve Moyer, who was the primary visionary for HSE and continues to lead the development team.


I asked Moyer some piercing questions about his background and the genesis of this project. (Spoiler alert: he’s more than qualified!) We also talked about the importance of open-source technology, Linux integration, and our collaboration with Red Hat, a leading company in the enterprise open-source world.

I found it fascinating, and I think you will too.
