Delivering Real-time Application Performance Without Breaking the Bank
Traditional flash storage provided a much-needed performance boost to legacy applications. There is a new breed of real-time applications however that are demanding even lower latencies and higher throughput. Delivering a real-time user experience means in-memory computing of large data sets and provide instant answers. Storage is once again the bottleneck. Fortunately, there is a new class of memory solutions on the market today ideal for real-time computing applications, but accessing these high-speed memory devices via a legacy software stack reintroduces performance bottlenecks.
In this ChalkTalk video Storage Switzerland and Plexistor discuss these new memory solutions and how software-defined memory provides new software stack optimized for in-memory applications.

Plexistor is the developer of a Software-Defined Memory (SDM) platform for next-generation data centers, bringing convergence of memory and storage technologies together. The combination enables high capacity persistent storage and near-memory speed performance by providing a direct data path from the application to the memory storage device. Plexistor’s SDM implementation will go further, enabling users to run large working data sets at lower costs, and offer backward compatibility with traditional storage-based applications to achieve near-memory performance levels.
