Non-volatile DIMMs: immortal DRAM?

DRAM’s speed. Flash’s data preservation. The NVDIMM has both. Too good to be true? It isn’t.

Nothing beats synchronous DRAM’s combination of price, performance and durability for main memory. But lose power and DRAM’s data is gone. Critical apps have long used battery-back up (BBU) to guard against wonky power.
