Presumably they will not really be creating the chips themselves, but rather big system integration. They have been looking at alternatives to flash (PCM) etc. for quite some time.

@selinz, yes I think the emphasis is on replacing HDD in the enterprise/server space with flash or storage-class alternatives. The cost/bit and reliability issues are still vastly different from HDD.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
