New Technology: SATADIMM™ by Viking Technology

The new SATADIMM™ by Viking Technology has got us all excited. It is an enterprise class SSD that fits into spare DRAM sockets, which will be powered by and connects into a standard SATA port.

There are already many benefits of using these SATA DIMMs. The two main ones are improved cooling over the OS drives and the potential to fully populate a 1U server.

Imagine a 1U server with 4 x 3.5” bays fully populated with 4 x 6Tb drives or 10 x 2.5” bay fully populated with 10 x 1Tb drives. These would make ideal examples of where to use the new SATADIMMs creating a smart and compact system to fit into your rack.

Another interesting possibility would be to use them in very high end desktop systems were you could sacrifice some DRAM slots for the SATADIMMs in order to free up 3.5” and 2.5” bays in a cramped build.

If you are interested in custom built systems with these SATADIMMs please give us a call today.
