nvNITRO™ Storage Accelerator

The nvNITRO Storage Accelerator is a revolutionary MRAM based SSD that has the high speed and high endurance of DRAMs combined with the non-volatility of Flash, all without the need for power backup. SMART Modular Technologies is a member of NVM Express.

Partners in Persistence
Powered by Everspin Technologies, the nvNITRO Storage Accelerator can be used for metadata caching to dramatically accelerate write performance without the need for battery backup and is the first in an emerging lineup of MRAM-based persistent memory products.
