IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a leading provider of high performance memory storage solutions for the cloud computing and storage markets, announced its participation at the SNIA Flash Memory Summit Conference where it will provide a demonstration of its recently launched EXPRESSvault EV3 PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 Non-volatile RAM (NVRAM).  Netlist, a member of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), will showcase EXPRESSvault's bandwidth and I/Os per second (IOPS) on a Dell R630 Haswell based Server at the SNIA booth 820 during the Conference which is taking place this week in Santa Clara, CA.

Mario Martinez, Senior Director of Marketing at Netlist, will participate in the Flash on the Memory Bus Panel Discussion taking place on Wednesday, August 12th from 9:45-10:50 AM PST.  The Panel will discuss flash on the memory bus, one of the hottest subsystem solutions to emerge recently.  They will examine how high speed and low latency FLASH in DIMM form factor on the memory bus has opened up a wide range of new markets.

"We are thrilled to showcase the EXPRESSvault EV3's ["EV3"] plug-and-play PCIe connectivity at this premier industry event," said Chris Lopes VP of Sales and Co-founder at Netlist.  "EV3 provides impressive performance and is ready to use the day it ships. There are no motherboard, BIOS, and Memory Reference Code (MRC) adjustments required and no need to rewrite any of the software applications. This unparalleled simplicity for a high performance solution will further accelerate the product's adoption into the market."

Netlist's EV3 family is a new ultra-fast storage class memory tier designed to accelerate mission critical applications in scale-out storage, all-flash arrays, database systems, distributed file systems, and server-side caching.  The product can be used as both a block storage device and a persistent memory extension mapped directly to the host.  In addition, the EV3 can be applied to storage systems using inline deduplication and compression, encryption, indexing and mapping.

EV3 is the latest enterprise class product from Netlist, based on the industry-standard PCIe 3.0 interface to enable plug-and-play PCIe connectivity.  The half-height and half-length card combines the high speed and endurance of DRAM with the non-volatility of MLC NAND flash to deliver sustainable performance of more than 400K I/Os per second (IOPS) with sub-microsecond latency—performance far superior than today's fastest Solid State Drives (SSD).  EV3 is an ideal match for 1U server and storage solutions in next-generation data centers for cloud computing that integrate IBM POWER or Intel Haswell/Broadwell CPUs and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and PCI Express SSD products.

Key competitive attributes of the EXPRESSvault EV3 include:

  • Virtually unlimited write endurance
  • Fast backup times: 4GB ~ 24 seconds, 8GB ~ 48 seconds, 16GB ~ 96 seconds
  • Supercap rating: 5 year @ 55C ambient, UL certification
  • Supercap charge time – less than 4 min
  • Extensive health monitoring, error reporting with predictive failure warnings, and backup, restore, power, NAND life status
  • 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities
