[Links of the day] 24/05/2016: Hybrid Memory Cube performance , Storage history and Energy computing problem

  • Performance Exploration of the Hybrid Memory Cube : Thesis evaluating the performance challenge of Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC). HMC is an emerging main memory technology that leverages advances in 3D fabrication techniques to create a memory device with several DRAM dies stacked on top of a CMOS logic layer. 
  • Computing’s Energy Problem : Mark Horowitz 2014 ISCC presentation on the energy computing challenge and how application needs to be more energy aware
  • Storage History : great presentation of the storage history from 1956 4.4 MB RAMAC to modern day storage system. With some great anecdotes thrown in the middle.
