Viking Modular Solutions™ Introduces ArxCis-NV™ a non-volatile cache module optimized for server and storage applications

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. - Viking Modular Solutions™ a division of Sanmina-SCI Corporation, and designer and manufacturer of memory and flash modules, introduces ArxCis-NV™, a non-volatile cache module product family.  ArxCis-NV products have been designed specifically for the RAID, server and storage applications where traditional battery backed DRAM modules offer an inferior performing and substantially less secure method of critical data protection.

ArxCis-NV is the next generation of high performance non-volatile cache modules.  Current technology of backing DRAM modules with batteries provides protection for approximately 72 hours and also brings a host of battery related issues to IT mangers.  ArxCis-NV products help eliminate these issues by transferring data from DRAM to NAND flash through a high-speed Viking proprietary logic interface where the data remains secure for up to 10 years.  This substantially increased level of security coupled with a significantly lower total cost of ownership solves a number of key IT complex hurdles.   In addition, by eliminating the need for batteries ArxCis-NV offers a green solution for RAID DIMM.  

ArxCis-NV provides a standard JEDEC ((Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) edge compatible DDR2 Registered DRAM DIMM module with ECC, embedded SSD (Solid State Drive) on the module for data backup and a proprietary controller.  The DIMM operates as a standard memory module until the system experiences unexpected power loss triggering a SAVE operation.  The SAVE operation transfers data in volatile memory (DRAM) to non-volatile memory (NAND flash) to prevent data loss. During the SAVE operation the modular power is supplied by Super Capacitors either mounted on the module or remotely, depending on the customer’s system space or TCase constraints.

Once the data is transferred to the non-volatile memory the data can be held for up to 10 years, giving you ample time to service the system.   At that time the module can perform a RESTORE function restoring the previously saved data, stored in non-volatile memory, and transferring it back to the DRAM.

Viking Modular Solutions continues to advance its technology leadership role by proactively developing innovative products for the enterprise, server, storage, embedded and network infrastructures markets.  For more information on all other DRAM and flash modules products, visit http://www.vikingmodular.com.
