Netlist Announces 16GB HyperCloud(TM) Memory Technology Qualified for HP SmartMemory on HP ProLiant Gen8 ServersEnterprise Data Centers Benefit From 16GB 1333MT/s Memory Modules for Complex, Scale-Out Computing Applications (May 15, 2012)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that Netlist's 16GB HyperCloud memory modules have been qualified by HP and will become the basis for HP SmartMemory HyperCloud for use on HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) DL rack-mount server models.
Two of the newest HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, the HP Proliant DL360p Gen8 and DL380p Gen8, are used by customers for leading server performance in increasingly virtualized environments. By qualifying Netlist HyperCloud technology for these high volume HP servers, Netlist brings the performance and cost benefits of HyperCloud to the high performance server market as part of HP SmartMemory.
Independent benchmark results from Computer Memory Test Labs, Inc. (CMTL) and customer-specific application performance tests confirm that HyperCloud memory technology operates up to 16% faster than LRDIMM, the industry's standard offering for high-density memory. This performance differential is equivalent to one server memory speed grade.
"Side-by-side benchmarking from various independent sources have proven HyperCloud technology to be the fastest server memory in the market and thus ideal for high-performance servers," said Chuck Hong, CEO of Netlist. "These qualifications expand the availability of HyperCloud to the highest volume servers in the world while extending the benefits of HyperCloud technology to customers running the most demanding applications."
"Clients continue to require both higher performance and increased memory capacity to run the most demanding applications for financial services, virtualization and high performance computing," said Jim Ganthier, vice president of marketing, Industry Standard Servers and Software, HP. "By adding HP SmartMemory with HyperCloud technology to our new HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, customers achieve higher memory bandwidth."
Netlist, Inc. designs and manufactures high-performance, logic-based memory subsystems for server and storage applications for cloud computing. Netlist's flagship products include HyperCloud, a patented memory technology that breaks traditional memory barriers, NVvault family of products that enables data retention during power interruption, EXPRESSvault, a PCI Express backup/recovery solution for cache data protection and a broad portfolio of industrial Flash and specialty memory subsystems including VLP (very low profile) DIMMs and Planar-X RDIMMs.
Netlist develops technology solutions for customer applications in which high-speed, high-capacity, small form factor and heat dissipation are key requirements for system memory. These customers include OEMs that design and build tower, rack-mounted, and blade servers, high-performance computing clusters, engineering workstations and telecommunications equipment.
