Front, Appears as a normal DDR3 DIMM.


Back (since when did these things have a sandforce controller...or a SATA port for that matter...)


Stuff a SATA drive into a DDR3 form factor. Who would'a thunk it?
Just a little interesting tech tidbit I wanted to share.

info page
260mb supposed read/write with 30k IOPS, and it comes in 25 to 400GB sizes with MLC and SLC, pretty neat. even supports SMART tech.

From what I remember reading they are targeted at enterprise servers. With the selling points being:

1) No cables
2) Fraction of the space of conventional SSDs
3) Many servers are out of SATA ports but have extra unused DIMM slots
