Netlist Introduces Low Voltage HyperCloud, Industry's First 1.35V Virtual Rank Memory Module

LAS VEGAS, April 27. Today at Interop 2010, Netlist, Inc. introduced its low voltage HyperCloud, the industry's highest density 1.35V virtual rank memory module. Supporting up to 384GB of DRAM populated in a single dual socket server, low voltage HyperCloud now offers datacenters the ability to realize up to 19 percent in memory power savings when compared with traditional 1.5V solutions.

"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," said C.K. Hong, president and CEO of Netlist. "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."

Low voltage HyperCloud memory features low latency and supports 3 DIMMs per channel (3 DPC) at a transfer rate of 1067 MT/s (backward compatible with 3 DPC 1333 MT/s at 1.5V) to provide maximum memory bandwidth and increased server performance versus standard registered DIMMs (RDIMMs) at 1.35V. It also utilizes Netlist's patented rank multiplication ASIC technology to fully populate three memory channels with 16GB 2 virtual rank (vRank) 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 (4 DPC) reaching a total capacity of 384GB.

Netlist will debut a 4GB low voltage HyperCloud module in an IBM x3550 M3 server along with other HyperCloud demonstrations, including "Datacenter in a Box," at Interop on April 27-29 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, booth number 850. The "Datacenter in Box" will showcase how to run a datacenter from a single server utilizing 288GB of HyperCloud memory. Netlist plans to sample customers with 1.35V low voltage HyperCloud this quarter and expects to be in production during the second half of this year.
