Viking Technology Collaborates with Sony Corporation to Bring ReRAM Storage Class Memory to NVDIMM Markets

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 10, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Viking Technology, a division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), and leading global manufacturer of NVDIMM, DRAM and solid state drive (SSD) solutions, today announced its collaboration agreement with Sony Corporation to develop the next generation of Non-Volatile Dual in-line Memory Module (NVDIMM) products leveraging ReRAM Storage Class Memory from Sony Corporation.

"Viking has a strong legacy developing Non-Volatile DIMM (NVDIMM) products over several generations from DDR2 to DDR4," said Hamid Shokrgozar, President, Viking Technology. "This partnership with Sony solidifies a long term roadmap for our NVDIMM products by utilizing next generation ReRAM Storage Class Memory from Sony. This product roadmap is also very important for our customers, who are deploying this key technology in their next generation computing and storage products. It also sets the stage for future Persistent Memory module solutions not only for Viking but for the enterprise storage and server markets."

This collaboration between the companies launches a significant advance in Storage Class Memory system product development, designed specifically for enterprise computing customers. Sony ReRAM Storage Class Memory delivers performance and endurance that greatly exceeds NAND flash, while simultaneously providing the data non-volatility and module memory capacity desired for persistent applications.    

"We are excited and looking forward to the co-development with Viking Technology on the next generation of NVDIMM products," said Terushi Shimizu, Senior Vice President and Deputy President of Device Solutions Business Group, Sony Corporation. "At this stage in ReRAM development, we are looking ahead to the implementation of this technology accelerating real-world cloud datacenter applications such as In-Memory Databases and Real Time Analytics. This will prove to be an exciting new chapter in the decade long development of our ReRAM memory technology."

Non-Volatile DIMMs, often termed NVDIMMs, are designed to deliver high performance, endurance and reliability to next generation servers that are NVDIMM enabled. Traditionally, enterprise applications could not trust main memory (DRAM) because it is volatile (loss of data upon power failure). Therefore, batteries, Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS's) and techniques such as check-pointing were used to ensure data security, but at the cost of performance. NVDIMMs now enable server and storage arrays to utilize persistent memory that delivers both the highest performance and 100 percent data security.

Viking Technology and Sony Corporation will be showcasing ReRAM Storage Class Memory at Viking's Booth #517 during the upcoming 2015 Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CAUSA, August 11-13. In addition both companies will be presenting in the following sessions and seminars on NVDIMM and New Memory Technologies:
