NORCROSS, Ga., Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- American Megatrends, Inc., (AMI), a leader in BIOS, remote management, data storage and solutions for the Android™ and Linux® operating systems, is pleased to announce that its flagship Aptio® V UEFI BIOS Firmware features support for the new Memory1™ storage technology introduced today from Diablo Technologies.

Aptio V® from American Megatrends represents the "next generation" of UEFI BIOS Firmware, featuring support for the latest UEFI specifications and the security, fast boot and touch interface support that today's platforms require. It brings together all of the experience, value-adds and improvements that AMI has incorporated into its UEFI and BIOS products from over 30 years as an industry leader, empowering the top OEMs and ODMs around the world with The Aptio Advantage. Aptio V also features specific enhancements and benefits for each key market segment - server, embedded, tablet, client and ARM - making the reasons to choose Aptio V perfectly clear.

The new Memory1™ family of products from Diablo Technologies represents a revolutionary technology that transforms the way server systems operate and perform. Memory1-based products are physically deployed into the same DIMM slots that house DRAM and represent the first generation of solutions from Diablo that are fully compatible with the DDR4 protocol and serve as system memory. With Memory1, massive capacity at a significant economic advantage is now possible, allowing up to four terabytes of system memory in a single two-socket server. Data now remains local to the CPU and applications, so that enterprise performance can be unlocked in ways that were previously impossible. Applications can immediately access larger data sets, perform faster analysis, and service more users than ever before.

With support now added to Aptio V UEFI Firmware, server systems can immediately realize the benefits of DDR4-based Memory1, including four times the capacity and improved economics. This gives even greater choice and flexibility to OEM and ODM server manufacturers when creating their hardware designs - and marries the best UEFI BIOS solution in the market with high capacity, economical Memory1.

"We're excited that American Megatrends has integrated support for the Diablo Memory1 product into their Aptio UEFI firmware solution," said Riccardo Badalone, CEO and Co-founder of Diablo Technologies. "With AMI providing BIOS for the majority of the server market, our collaboration is making it easy for OEM and ODMs to create a broad and vibrant ecosystem around solutions with Memory1."

"AMI is the first independent BIOS vendor (IBV) to enable BIOS-level support for Diablo Technologies' Memory1 product in our Aptio V UEFI firmware solution. We strongly believe that this technology will be a disruptive force in the server industry. Hardware manufacturers that use Aptio V will soon be able to offer support for DDR-4 Memory1 modules, in addition to our existing support for Diablo Memory Channel Storage products," commented Subramonian Shankar, President and CEO of American Megatrends.
