This patent protects a technique to reduce power consumption and heat generation in a system containing large amounts of DRAM and/or flash memory, such as Violin´s Flash Storage Platform. This is achieved by actively placing memory components into a low power state, while still maintaining the refresh cycles required. Coupled with vRAID technology, performance is not impacted by the time delay associated with devices in a low power state, thus guaranteeing a consistent level of performance while saving power and data center cooling.
