SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Large-scale, memory-hungry applications are notoriously costly to support and scale, but advances in server system memory technologies have made headway in containing costs. Diablo Technologies'™ Memory1 DDR4 modules enable the high capacities needed to support data- and memory-intensive applications like large-scale search engines, voice recognition services, cloud computing, or data analysis. However, these benefits also extend to dramatic reductions in data center TCO.
Below are tips from experts at Diablo Technologies for using Memory1 to improve operation and lower costs in the data center.
Use Fewer Servers for the Same Workload
Depending on the application, Memory1 can reduce the total number of servers required to support a given workload or capacity by as much as 90 percent. Aside from the application-level advantages of higher available capacity, the infrastructure consolidation this allows translates to a substantial reduction in overall operating costs, from initial capital expenses (Capex) to management and maintenance (Opex).
Memory1 cost effectively provides up to four times the memory capacity of standard DRAM DIMMs. This enables much higher total system memory configurations, without the additional and prohibitive cost that would be required to achieve the same levels using DRAM alone. By blending the best attributes of DRAM and NAND-Flash, Memory1 augments system memory with higher capacity and better overall economics.
Increase Solid State Life
Solid-state disk delivers improved performance over hard disk drives, but with wear out concern. This is especially the case for budget arrays that use less expensive, MLC or TLC flash. Using Diablo's tiered-memory software algorithms, which constantly manage service and capacity levels, data moves automatically between the DRAM and Memory1 tiers based on utilization and access patterns. By leveraging DRAM endurance and logically delivering the right capacity and performance to each application, Memory1 boosts the effective endurance of NAND-Flash memory by several factors over SSDs.
Gain Business Insights Faster
The value of Big Data analytics engines are that they allow enterprises to derive insights and information from large pools of data, insights that have relevance to business processes. With the added performance of Memory1, users can process data and gain valuable insight faster than competitors, and turn performance into profit. Memory1 users gain up to 75 percent efficiency improvements to enable real-time Big Data analytics jobs.
Reduce Power, Cooling and Floor Space Budgets
Any reduction in server sprawl has a corresponding reduction in PCFE – Power, Cooling, and Floor space Expenses. Using Memory1 to achieve even a conservative 50 percent reduction in hardware footprint will cut IT's power and real estate requirements dramatically; some Memory1 users are seeing PCFE savings of up to 80 percent. This is not only a relief to overall operational expenses, but also to the planet.
Maintain Current Data Center Environment
Memory1 does not require any changes to server operating systems, application software or hardware. Memory1 modules install in the same industry standard memory slots that hold DDR4 DRAM, integrating seamlessly into the datacenter.
Diablo Technologies' Memory1 is available now and is the first memory DIMM to expose NAND-Flash as standard application memory. This revolutionary solution provides the industry's most economical and highest-capacity byte-addressable memory modules. Memory1 also minimizes Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing the number of servers required to support memory-constrained applications. To download the Memory1 white papers, visit:
