SATADIMM™ Solid State Drive Breathes New Life into Existing Servers (whitepaper)


Many businesses would welcome an opportunity to deliver more performance from their existing servers, especially if it could be done without being forced to rework existing storage setups. SATADIMM from Viking Technology provides exactly this opportunity by packaging an SSD in a useful DDR3 form factor. Since most servers have open DIMM slots and unused SATA headers, SATADIMM provides a simple, inexpensive, and non-disruptive way to add enterprise class SSDs to an existing server.




  • Need to deliver more performance from existing data centers without adding to data center footprint.


  • Viking Technology SATADIMM


  • Add Enterprise SSD to the data center with no increase in data center footprint.
  • Installation is quick and non-disruptive to existing storage setups.
  • Cost-effective server capacity and performance multiplier.

Use Cases

  • Fast and secure internal boot drive
  • Application accelerator/SSD cache
  • Tier 0 primary storage

SATADIMM Scalability Advantages
Existing deployed servers Can enable SSD performance without sacrificing HDD drive bays
  Can scale depending on available DDR3 DIMM sockets
  Price and performance can scale over time
  Does not occupy precious PCIe slots, which are best suited to HBA's
  Can optimize servers for fast boot solution
  Very low power consumption compared to HDD & PCIe SSDs 
  Upgrades existing servers without disrupting current storage
*Performance throttling may be engaged to ensure 5-year endurance.
** Option to route SATA signals through DIMM edge connector is available.
