IRVINE, CA, Nov. 1 – Netlist, Inc., a leading provider of high performance memory solutions for the cloud computing market, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has recently issued to Netlist -- U.S. Patent No. 8,301,833 ('833) entitled "Non-Volatile Memory Module."
The '833 patent covers fundamentals of hybrid memory subsystems. Netlist has been a leader for many years in the field of hybrid memory, a technology that combines flash and DRAMs to prevent loss of critical data by transferring data from volatile to non-volatile memory. Netlist is the only supplier to have shipped high volumes of memory subsystems (e.g. NVvault and EXPRESSvault) using this technology to major server and storage customers.
NVvault is a plug-and-play DDR2/DDR3 DIMM solution which lowers data center TCO through reduced system downtime and elimination of battery maintenance. EXPRESSvault plugs into a PCIe slot with the same functionality and the same benefit of expanded write life cycles. These improved data protection solutions provide high throughput and fast access times with low latency read and write transactions. Enterprise customers using NVvault and EXPRESSvault are able to reliably recover critical data following a system power outage, while traditional solutions can only preserve data for a limited period of time.
"We are pleased that the USPTO has granted Netlist this patent which we believe to be seminal in the area of hybrid memory data protection," said Netlist CEO, C.K. Hong. "This patent validates our historical market leadership for solutions that protect critical data in enterprise systems. Today, as many companies' servers and storage systems are being brought back on-line after power outages, our technology is helping to facilitate the recovery of mission critical data in these enterprises."
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.
