Memory reliability is important for the correct operation of computing systems. While technology scaling as paved the way for improvements in the capacity and energy-efficiency of memory, the reliability aspects of such scaling must be well characterized and addressed in the design of computer hardware. AMD has collected and analyzed memory reliability data from several production systems running in data centers. This data spans several generations of DRAM technologies, as well as SRAM. This talk will first explain how bit-cell reliability can impact on the design and use of computing hardware and highlight the importance of studying memory faults from commercial hardware in the field. The talk will then present memory reliability data and insights from AMD’s field studies and discuss their implications from the viewpoint architecting resilient systems.
