Achieving 384GB of memory, Netlist improves efficiency for virtualization applications
NEW YORK, Oct. 20 -- At Interop New York, Netlist, Inc. today announced its demonstration of 100 virtual machines on a single, fully loaded, 24-slot 2P server with 384GB of DRAM -- highlighting its HyperCloud memory technology. The demonstration will showcase how companies can increase memory capacity and maximize server utilization and consolidation ratios, supporting the growing demand of virtualization applications.
The addition of DRAM capacity, made possible with HyperCloud memory modules, allows IT managers to increase the number of virtual machines per server and allocates more memory to each virtual machine. Consolidation of servers lowers hardware and operation costs and in turn maximizes virtualization efficiency. For this specific demonstration, Netlist will use a HP DL385 G7 dual socket server with AMD's Opteron 8-core CPUs and 24 memory slots acting as the vehicle. Populated with 24 16GB, 2vRank HyperCloud DIMMs, the servers will run vSphere virtualization software from VMware with 100 virtual machines, Linux, and Microsoft-based host software.
"This demonstration highlights the benefits of HyperCloud memory in virtualized environments," said Paul Duran, director of marketing for Netlist. "Featuring 100 virtual machines on a single dual socket server we have improved server utilization by maximizing memory. This ultimately can improve consolidation ratios and overall datacenter efficiency."
Netlist's demonstration is taking place at Interop October 20-21 in booth # 611 at the Javits Center in New York City.
HyperCloud memory is available in both 8GB and 16GB, 2 vRank module options.
Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST) designs and manufactures high-performance, logic-based memory subsystems for datacenter server and high-performance computing and communications markets. Netlist's flagship products include HyperCloud Memory, which breaks traditional memory barriers and NetVault, a flash memory-based subsystem that enables data retention weeks following a disaster. The memory technologies are developed for applications in which high-speed, high-capacity memory, enhanced functionality, small form factor, and heat dissipation are key requirements. These applications include tower-servers, rack-mounted servers, blade servers, high-performance computing clusters, engineering workstations, and telecommunication equipment. Founded in 2000, Netlist is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., with manufacturing facilities in Suzhou, People's Republic of China. For more information, visit the company's website at www.netlist.com.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
