MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attendees of the upcoming In-Memory Computing Summit have the opportunity to learn more about Plexistor's new converged Software Defined Memory (SDM) architecture. The IMC Summit will be held May 23-24 at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco, Calif.; at 2:00 p.m. on day two, Plexistor CTO Dr. Amit Golander will speak to attendees about the benefits of memory and storage convergence.
In Golander's view, moving active working sets to memory delivered performance gains for applications like in-memory databases and NoSQL, but at the cost of overconsuming expensive DRAM resources, putting data at risk, difficulty scaling, and long recovery times when failures occur. Golander will present the convergence of memory and storage, and how it can address these deficiencies, including real-world examples in which SDM runs working sets that are much larger than the DRAM budget.
"IMC Summit is a tailor-made audience for our message that SDM delivers persistent high-capacity storage at near-memory speed for these newer performance-hungry applications," said Golander. "The workarounds that attendees currently use to achieve their required speeds are complex, risky, and incur much higher costs than necessary. This is madness that we can stop."
Plexistor's converged SDM solution runs both in-memory and traditional enterprise applications on a single infrastructure, without dedicated clusters, simplifying the data center architecture and management and reducing costs. It also allows users to leverage new and upcoming memory and storage technologies like volatile DRAM and emerging Non-Volatile memory devices such as NVDIMM-N and 3D XPoint™ as well as traditional flash storage devices such as NVMe and the upcoming NVMe over Fabric.
A free community edition of Plexistor's software solution is available for both on-premise and cloud-based deployment on EC2 for AWS: http://www.plexistor.com/download.
The only industry-wide event of its kind, IMC Summit attracts technical IT decision makers, implementers and developers in in-memory computing, big data, fast data, IoT and HPC for networking, education and the exchange of ideas. For more information visit http://imcsummit.org.
Plexistor has built a new Software-Defined Memory (SDM) platform to leverage volatile DRAM and emerging persistent memory, such as NVDIMM-N and the forthcoming 3DXPoint™, with large capacity, persistence of storage and performance of memory. Plexistor's solution upgrades infrastructure to ultra-low latency converged primary storage that enables in-memory applications to run large data sets at memory speeds. 100 times faster than flash SSD, Plexistor's SDM supports next-generation applications such as relational databases, in-memory databases, NoSQL, big data analytics, and complex event processing that challenge traditional compute and storage resources. The platform works across the data center to bring together in-memory and Enterprise storage paradigms, so conventional applications and business processes also benefit from SDM performance.
Plexistor was founded in Israel in 2013 and is headquartered in Mountain View, with its R&D in Herzliya, Israel. For further information visit www.plexistor.com
