IBM Has a Memory Business in Japan

This week at TU-Automotive, Toshiba Memory America, Inc (TMA) will be on display showcasing its high-performance flash-based enterprise solution based on two different platforms – the i paralysis notebook PC solutions based on IBM’s IBM-made spindle processor and the SATA-based UTI solution on the IBM Serveware platform. The key difference between these two products lies in their underlying storage needs and benefits. Toshiba’s primary software flash solution is based on the IBM Serveware operating system for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) while the partner firm’s spindle based i paralysis notebook PC offers storage capacity much higher than IBM’s offering.


Now a days, automotive applications require enterprise-class storage and data management solutions capable of handling the heavy workloads that come with software applications, software, hardware and even the complex automotive systems. The role of flash memory products has significantly changed over the years and today’s IT solutions are more robust and flexible than ever before. Now is the right time to evaluate and invest in Toshiba Memory America’s latest offerings to improve your business. Toshiba and other global flash memory companies are engaged in a relentless race to deliver new and innovative products to end users. The best solutions today not only offer higher density storage capacities but also allow IT automation to perform demanding tasks with reduced costs.


The IBM-designed spindle processor solution is used in conjunction with Toshiba’s iynek(TM) ultra-small form factor enterprise memory solutions to meet the requirements of auto dealers, OEMs, automotive suppliers and others. With this solution, IT managers can easily manage automotive applications without compromising overall system efficiency and performance. By utilizing standard IT service and generic BIC devices, it is easy to achieve cost savings and increase revenues with the integration of IBM’s in-house developed components. This innovation further helps to improve automotive OEM sales by reducing lead times for new clients. The key benefits of incorporating IBM’s flash memory technology into an existing system include:


High Availability – For the most demanding automotive applications, Toshiba’s iynek(TM) and IBM’s ufs(TM) UFS chips provide the flexibility and reliability required to meet company-specific demands. These two technologies are designed to support a wide range of automotive applications and can deliver superior performance. As an example, both types of iynek flash memory chips can support EDO systems for fast data access even under high-traffic conditions.


Name Change – In November 2021, Toshiba announced that it would implement two new flash memory chips manufactured by Toshiba and sold under its own brand name. The two new products are known as “Toshiba iynek” and “IBM iynek”. The “IBM iynek” is a high-performanceurance flash memory chip manufactured by IBM’s Power Generation Infrastructure (PGI) in collaboration with chip designer International Data Corp. (IDC). The “Toshiba iynek” is a high-qualityuranceurance flash memory chip manufactured and licensed by Toshiba. As part of the name change, the company will also begin selling the IBM brand of iynek to consumers in Japan and Korea.


The IBM-Toshiba alliance expands the global use of IBM memory chips for automotive and other uses. With the new name, IBM can broaden its memory services to include other IT needs, while also adding new markets. In addition to expanding into the automotive industry, IBM intends to enter into strategic alliances with JEDEC, makers of the leading open-standards-based database management systems, and with flash device manufacturers. The combination of a strong customer base, deep pool of resources and aggressive marketing could help boost profitability for IBM and help it achieve its growth goals. Now that this alliance has been launched, we will see how it can expand the reach of IBM memory chips in the consumer market.
