High-performance memory subsystems company Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST) has announced that its 16GB HyperCloud memory modules have been qualified by HP. Going forward, the modules will become the basis for HP SmartMemory HyperCloud for use on HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) DL rack-mount server models.
HP Qualified Server Memory is an HP Qualified Option, which means every genuine HP DIMM has been through the company's rigorous qualification process that extends beyond standard industry practice. HP Qualified Server Memory is tested specifically on HP ProLiant servers to ensure compatibility, performance, longevity and reliability.
According to Netlist, 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 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.
Netlist's HCDIMM technology enables 384GB memory support at 1333MT/s in the latest generation Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 server platforms, improving performance in business-critical applications as compared to industry-standard RDIMM or LRDIMM for large memory capacities.
"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."
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."
