NVMdurance wins new funding at 2014 Flash Summit

NAND flash market expected to be worth $28 billion in 2014: New Venture Partners

Irish flash optimisation company, NVMdurance, has won new funding just a year after winning the Most Innovative Technology at the Flash Memory Summit 2013.

The company's existing investors, New Venture Partners and NDRC, have been joined by ACT Venture Capital and Enterprise Ireland in an $800,000 funding round.

The announcement was made at Flash Summit 2014, Santa Clara.

The funding follows the announcement of NAND flash endurance gains.

NVMdurance software is now proven to make Solid State Disks last more than 20 times longer by extending the endurance of the flash memory on 1x nm chips, according to a company statement.

At Flash Summit 2013 NVMdurance caused a stir by demonstrating on 3x nm NAND flash that it could achieve a tenfold endurance gain by optimising parameter values alone.

Now the company has proven that the gain from the use of various other techniques (Error Correction Code) is multiplicative of the gain from NVMdurance’ software and so it is now at least a twentyfold gain – even on the latest generation of devices, according to a company statement.

New Venture Partners LLC, venture capitalist, Steve Socolof, said he was excited by the progress that NVMdurance had made and was delighted to be following the firm's money in this latest round of funding.

“NAND flash is the fastest-growing product in the history of the semiconductor market," he said.

"The market in 2014 is expected to be over $28 billion.”

NVMdurance receives additional investment from existing and new investors

NVMdurance chief executive, Pearse Coyle, said the investment would support the commercial roll-out of the company's technology.

“Using NVMdurance software, the life of the flash is extended by at least 20 times with no impact on manufacturing process or architecture," he said.

"The endurance improvements we have recently achieved have put us at the head of the pack globally and we are very pleased with the deployments we are now working on.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
