Podcast #79: The Future of 3D XPoint And Optane with Chris Mellor

Micron announced a shift in portfolio strategy this week and involves ceasing the development of 3D XPoint. The company stated: “Micron has now determined that there is insufficient market validation to justify the ongoing high levels of investments required to successfully commercialize 3D XPoint at scale to address the evolving memory and storage needs of its customers.” This spurred Chris Mellor to do some digging, which he is oft to do. On this podcast, I sit down with the meanest man in enterprise IT to talk Optane, Micron killing XPoint, the future of PMem, Compute Express Link (CXL), and other up-and-coming tech in the data center.
