back to article Micron fires off some in-memory flash data rockets

Micron’s Storage Business Unit (SBU) wants to shake up the server status quo with a dynamic upstart duo: in-memory app accelerating data processing rockets and instant access, cold data flash vaults. How it’s going to do that begins with its NAND chip development plans, which we learned about at a Silicon Valley briefing. It …
