IDC TechBrief: Persistent Memory and Storage-Class Memory
This IDC TechBrief defines the technologies and discusses considerations information technology (IT) managers need to keep in mind as they think about deploying them. As storage performance requirements have continued to increase, emerging memory technologies are arising to meet the need. Persistent memory (PM) and storage-class memory (SCM) are two of these that are available for early production deployments today.
"For some workloads and use cases, enterprises are looking for more storage performance than they can get out of NVMe-based arrays that use NAND flash-based SSDs," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group. "PM and SCM provide two higher-performance options for these types of customers."
