Hold the phone (smartphone, wearable device, virtual reality headset, and so forth) at least for the moment. Dell EMC want to see improved performance in the consumer and server capabilities, and have put their money squarely on NRAM.
At the Dell EMC World annual conference at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas recently, Dell Technologies Capital disclosed a large number of investments in multiple intriguing technologies, but none more fascinating than Nantero. The size of the investment in NRAM has not be revealed, but it is yet another sign of confidence in a technology repeatedly ridiculed for being an unsound bet.
Dell EMC does not fit the frivolous gambler type. They have made a serious investment in their own future, and as described previously, we at BCC Research made a similar calculation. The chief variable, at this point, is just how big will NRAM pay out.
Opposites attract, and the results are becoming hard to ignore. Stay tuned, as we continue to follow the magnetic pull of a gravity defying technology becoming entwined within archly conservative and risk averse industries. It’s a story worth betting on.
