Hybrid SSD with ReRAM

It looks like that a group of Japanese researchers have found a way to push SSD disks performance even farther. They have implemented an algorithm called MRU (most recently used) which moves frequently used data from the NAND cells of the SSD drive to the 8GB of a memristor based RAM added to the drive itself.

The main advantages of this technology is the fact that it allows faster performance and an extended MTBF, the latter being the main weakness of SSD.
