Claims to enhance server performance with power savings of up to 19% versus 1.5V offerings
Netlist has unveiled low voltage HyperCloud, a 1.35V virtual rank memory module supporting up to 384GB of DRAM populated in a single dual socket server.
The company claims that HyperCloud will offer datacentres the ability to realise up to 19% in memory power savings when compared with traditional 1.5V offerings.
According to Netlist, the new memory module features low latency and supports 3 DIMMs per channel at a transfer rate of 1067 MT/s to provide maximum memory bandwidth and increased server performance versus standard registered DIMMs (RDIMMs) at 1.35V.
Netlist said that the new offering utilises rank multiplication ASIC technology to fully populate three memory channels with 16GB 2 virtual rank RDIMMs. Four physical ranks are hidden from the memory controller hub and presented as two virtual ranks. Dual socket servers can then be fully populated with twenty-four 16GB 2 vRank RDIMMs reaching a total capacity of 384GB.
C.K. Hong, president and CEO of Netlist, said: The need for datacenters to run more efficiently is increasing, especially as IT managers place more emphasis on both the economic and environmental impact of their energy consumption.
Low voltage HyperCloud memory provides a lower power option for datacenters that will reduce total energy costs while still delivering a ‘best in class’ high capacity and bandwidth memory solution.
