"From our start in 2007, we have always believed that NVDIMM technology could be a game-changer for enterprise-class server and storage solutions. " "By combining industry-standard DRAM and NAND flash memory, NVDIMMs will provide the low latency and nearly infinite endurance of DRAM, along with the nonvolatility of flash. During normal operation, the NVDIMM appears to the host system as a standard JEDEC DRAM memory module. "

so they where 3 years behind "Freescale Semiconductor, Inc., 2004,... MRAM is..." and rather than back that real existing commercial "NIH" DRAM/SRAM speed low nanosecond latency, infinite endurance, zero power state retention MRAM product, they picked the antiquated slow high latency NAND Flash SSD in 2012/13 hoping some time in the future with lots of new investors money some generic DRAM can save and extend NAND Flash usable life profit margins and call it hybrid nonvolatile RAM technology.

if the current day enterprise-class server and storage guys such as Google, Facebook, and world's Gov's infrastructure etc have any sense they will back and help financially push the real infinite endurance future MRAM/FRAM (with memory access speeds 100 times faster and 250x less power than dinosaur NAND Flash) and related current nano tech including [self assembled/fractal based] "hybrid photonics" etc today

and forget antiquated dinosaur "NAND Flash" as its days are numbered and past as its reaching its usable limits soon enough
