1 Q3’13 ArxCis-NV TM NVDIMM Technology & Roadmap Review


3 3 NVDIMM is “leading the charge” of Non-Volatility & Persistence to main memory Will lead to radical changes in computing / storage architecture / paradigms Many different usage models, with strong Value Prop Arxcis-NV Technical Overview

4 4 FEATURES Arxcis-NV Technical Overview »DRAM Capacities: 2GB, 4GB, 8GB »DDR3 1.5V 1333MT/s »NAND 2x DRAM Capacity »Multiple Host Trigger Methods (incl ADR) »Supercapacitor Charged via DIMM »Save / ~10 sec/GB Powered by SuperCapacitors in event of power-failure DRAM Endurance & Speed NAND for Persistence

5 5 Fastest storage tier, 11GB/S, DDR3 DIMM speed & bandwidth more than 300% faster than PCI-E (3.2GB/S). 1.4 million IOPS Read & Write, 3 times faster than PCI-E cards. (430K Write IOPS) DRAM chips never wear out, no limit on number of writes. DIMM interface “talks” to CPU more directly. 1000x better latency performance than PCI-E, 10 nanoseconds vs 10 microseconds. Complete solution with supercap, monitors supercap health. ArxCis NVDIMM Key Features I. Arxcis-NV Technical Overview

10 10 Use as RAMDISK, and data will be saved in event of power failure. (PRAMDISK) Faster recover from power failure, back to system environment before power failure. Support Instant On, apps layer data kept in flash, fastest boot. Configure as block device for caching, performance + endurance. Memcache application pushing up demand for NVDIMM. Support both ADR & NMI power failure data saving functions. Intel’s chosen partner for NVDIMM enablement for Grantely platform. ArxCis NVDIMM Key Features II. Arxcis-NV Technical Overview

11 11 -Removing need to write on SSDs, extend life of SSD based servers. -No need over-provisioning, releasing extra storage space from SSDs. -No operation cycles wasted on wear leveling. -No longer a “write cliff”, nor need to closely monitor drive usage. -Rapid increase in ROI for enterprise or data center applications. ArxCis NVDIMM, Perfect Match For SSD based Enterprise & DCN Systems. Arxcis-NV Technical Overview
