HyperCloud memory and MDS Micro Servers increase server utility for virtualization efficiency in the cloud
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 15 -- Netlist, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that its HyperCloud memory module is now part of the MDS Micro Cloud Matrix. The MDS Micro Cloud Matrix provides modular server-based computing blocks that contain core datacenter hardware within a single enclosure including VMware-certified QUADv servers with mass local storage.
Cloud computing infrastructure is often based on elastic hardware platforms that allow on-demand access to virtual machines of varying sizes. This requires that memory, the central processing unit (CPU), and disks be maximized to full potential on each server. HyperCloud increases server utility by maximizing memory instead of adding more CPUs.
"Netlist's offering is unique in that it directly addresses the memory slowness that customers face on a server platform with a large amount of memory," said Tim Myers, senior architect of VMware. "Instead of the speed being reduced, they are able to maintain the faster speeds which provides a better opportunity for customer satisfaction."
With the incorporation of HyperCloud, MDS Micro is now able to provide increased server utility for virtualization applications in the Cloud.
"HyperCloud memory enables the Cloud Matrix to deliver efficient server compute blocks," said Karriem Adams, vice president of sales at MDS Micro. "We've seen significant interest in our Cloud Matrix solution for virtualization applications and we're in need of a technology that can effectively support demanding memory requirements. When evaluating memory solutions, Netlist was the clear winner for its ability to help increase server utility in our Cloud Matrix."
Certification of HyperCloud memory modules on MDS Micro's QUADv for the Cloud Matrix increases server performance to its full potential and enables up to 768GB of memory running at 1333 MT/s.
"Selection by MDS Micro is validation that HyperCloud enables more efficiency in virtualization environments," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Netlist. "We are excited to work with MDS Micro on delivering compelling server solutions to support the industry's growth in virtualization and cloud computing applications."
Netlist will demonstrate HyperCloud memory in the MDS Micro QUADv server at the Supercomputing show (SC10), taking place November 15-18 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, in booth number 4223.
