  • server-side flash

    Server-side flash is the use of a solid state drive with flash memory in a server. The flash memory, typically NAND, may be connected via different interfaces such as SATA, SAS or PCIe.  

  • P/E cycle

    A solid-state-storage program-erase cycle is a sequence of events in which data is written to solid-state NAND flash memory cell (such as the type found in a so-called flash or thumb drive), then erased, and then rewritten. 

  • resistive RAM (RRAM)

    Resistive random-access memory (RRAM) is a form of nonvolatile storage that operates by changing the resistance of a specially formulated solid dielectric material. 

  • solid-state storage

    Solid state storage (SSS) is a type of computer storage media that is made from silicon microchips. 

  • multi-level cell (MLC) flash

    Multi-level cell (MLC) flash writes two data segments to the same cell, effectively doubling the capacity of flash storage media. 

  • solid-state drive (SSD)

    An SSD (solid-state drive or solid-state disk) is a storage device that stores persistent data on solid-state flash memory. (Continued...) 

  • cache memory

    Cache memory is random access memory (RAM) that a computer microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access regular RAM. 

  • flash memory

    Flash memory is a type of constantly-powered nonvolatile memory that can be erased and reprogrammed in units of memory called blocks. 

  • nonvolatile storage (NVS)

    Also see our Fast Guide to RAM. Nonvolatile (sometimes written as "non-volatile") storage (NVS) - also known as nonvolatile memory or nonvolatile random access memory (NVRAM) - is a form of static random access memory whose contents are saved when a ... 

  • nonvolatile memory

    Also see our Fast Guide to RAM. Nonvolatile memory is a general term for all forms of solid state (no moving parts) memory that do not need to have their memory contents periodically refreshed.
