International Business Machines Corporation, commonly referred to as IBM, has recently unveiled an innovative new way to create a cheaper alternative to DRAM, as the company has been developing techniques to make enterprise data centers more dense. Designed to be less expensive than DRAM and faster than flash, phase-change memory, or PCM, is one of the several new emerging technologies. Phase-change memory has the potential to provide consumers as well as enterprises with faster access to data with lower costs; but prior to this happening, there are challenges which must be dealt with first.
