Although current shipping quantities of
NVM are merely (!) millions of units with
capacities of just megabytes, all of these
manufacturers are committed to continuing
scale-up to GB. Some of these larger units
will start shipping in 2014/2015.
This is a big industry with many creative
and agile startups pushing the envelope
and the leading IT manufacturers shipping
their own products. The production
technologies are variants of existing
fabrication processes. But let’s move past
arguing the pros and cons of the different
implementation technologies. I’ve no idea
which technology or which company will
win out. But the breadth and commitment
of the industry is such that the NVM
future will arrive sooner than later. My
motivation here is to talk about some of
the implications of this hardware future
and to help the software community think
about what we’d like to do with it.
