SSDAlloc Memory expansion technology commercialized

Graduate student Anirudh Badam and Professor Vivek Pai have been working on exploiting solid-state disk (SSD) to expand the addressable memory that programs can use; they developed a hybrid memory allocator called SSDAlloc. Today, Fusion-io announced their Extended Memory technology resulting from a collaboration with Badam and Pai.
