Data Storage

+ - Non-Volatile Memory's Future is in Software->

Submitted by Lucas123
Lucas123 (935744) writes "As emerging memory technologies such as Phase-Change Memory and Racetrack Memory offer the promise of higher performance and longevity compared with today's NAND flash, developers are working on specifications that will allow them to serve dual roles of mass storage and system memory in the future. One industry task force made up of system and software manufacturers has already begun work to improve OS speeds by making them aware when a medium that is faster than spinning disk is available. The group will then work on giving applications direct access to the flash through the OS; and lastly, it wants to enable new non-volatile memory to be seen as system memory by the CPU."
