IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 28 — Netlist, Inc., a leading provider of high performance memory solutions for the cloud computing market, announced that its 32GB HyperCloud HCDIMM memory was an integral part of a system which broke the one million transaction per minute barrier in TPC Benchmark C testing.
Along with the latest server hardware technologies and Linux software running Hypervisor on an x86 platform, 768GB of HyperCloud memory enabled a server system for the first time to surpass the one million transaction per minute barrier in a virtualized x86 platform.
"The Transaction Processing Council is one of the most respected benchmarking organizations in the server and supercomputing industry. We’re very pleased to have HyperCloud memory be part of a record-setting performance as measured and recorded by TPC-C," said C.K. Hong, CEO of Netlist.

HyperCloud memory utilizes a distributed buffer architecture to reduce latency and incorporates Netlist's patented rank multiplication and load reduction technologies. Rank multiplication enables more DRAM capacity and load reduction reduces the loading to the memory interface allowing HCDIMMs to run at faster speeds at maximum capacity.
HCDIMMs allow servers to operate at their peak potential by speeding up the transfer of data between CPU and memory. HyperCloud increases performance in such key applications as analytics, simulation and as shown by this benchmark, virtualization.
Netlist, Inc. designs and manufactures high-performance, logic-based memory subsystems for server and storage applications for cloud computing. Netlist’s flagship products include HyperCloud, a patented memory technology that breaks traditional memory barriers, NVvault family of products that enables data retention during power interruption, EXPRESSvault, a PCI Express backup/recovery solution for cache data protection and a broad portfolio of industrial Flash and specialty memory subsystems including VLP (very low profile) DIMMs and Planar-X RDIMMs.
Netlist develops technology solutions for customer applications in which high-speed, high-capacity, small form factor and heat dissipation are key requirements for system memory. These customers include OEMs that design and build tower, rack-mounted, and blade servers, high-performance computing clusters, engineering workstations and telecommunications equipment. Founded in 2000, Netlist is headquartered in Irvine, CA with manufacturing facilities in Suzhou, People’s Republic of China and an engineering design center in Silicon Valley, CA.
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

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.
