Patented HyperCloud and Planar-X technologies enable 768GB of DRAM server memory
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 14 -- Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced the industry's first 32GB Virtual Dual Rank (2vR) RDIMM (registered dual inline memory module). The new HyperCloud module enables an unprecedented 768GB of RDIMM memory capacity in the next generation two-processor servers.
While the industry-at-large waits several years for the development of 8Gb monolithic DRAM to create this level of density, today Netlist is delivering the first 32GB 2vR RDIMM by using currently available 4Gb monolithic DRAM. At the center of this feat is HyperCloud's patented rank multiplication technology which replicates the functionality of a yet unavailable 8Gb DRAM with two 4Gb DRAMs. Netlist's innovative Planar-X technology further enables cost-effective packaging of 72 4Gb components into a standard RDIMM form-factor, producing the lowest-cost highest-density memory module in the market. HyperCloud modules are JEDEC compatible and plug into standard server memory slots.
"By delivering the industry's first 32GB 2vR RDIMM, we are able to offer our customers unprecedented memory capacity with efficient economics associated with widely available DRAM components," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, Netlist. "The processing of large data sets at high CPU speeds requires large amounts of dynamic memory to avoid costly disk drive wait times. With the new 32GB HyperCloud, our OEM customers can maximize server utilization and application performance which translate into differentiated value for their products."
"Customers are looking for greater memory capacity and bandwidth for enhanced application performance," said Mike Gill, vice president of engineering, Industry Standard Servers and Software, HP. "HP ProLiant servers that use Netlist's HyperCloud memory products help customers achieve improved capacity and memory bandwidth needed for cloud computing, analytics, virtualization and high performance computing applications."
Netlist is showcasing its 32GB Virtual Dual Rank HyperCloud Planar-X RDIMM at SC11 in booth number 2938. SC11 is the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis taking place in Seattle November 12-18; for more information, see the SC11 website: www.sc11.supercomputing.org.

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.
