RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtium, a leading provider of storage and memory solutions for embedded systems, today announced that the company's ECC SODIMM memory modules are proven for use on high-volume MicroServers.  Intel® has validated Virtium's ECC SODIMM modules on its Bordenville MicroServer platform, which paves the way for more mainstream applications to realize the advantages of ECC on a smaller form factor module.   Because MicroServers are optimized for smaller, lightweight scale-out of non-enterprise applications such as front-end web, content delivery nodes and low-end dedicated hosting devices, these applications require lower cost, reduced footprint memory modules.

"Virtium is committed to delivering innovative memory solutions, and our ECC SODIMM modules have been successfully implemented in telecom, networking and embedded systems for many years.  Now, MicroServers can leverage this proven memory solution," said Phan Hoang, vice president of R&D at Virtium.  "Embedded and industrial systems customers also benefit from better economies of scale due to broader adoption of this technology."  

Virtium has developed numerous industry firsts such as VLP and Blade VLP (ULP).  It was the first to introduce ECC SODIMM and SO-RDIMM products in 2006, and led its specification development through JEDEC.  The expansion into more mainstream MicroServer applications demonstrates how DDR2, DDR3, DDR3L ECC SODIMM can serve as a cost-effective memory module alternative in higher volume system deployments. 

Virtium's full line of ECC SODIMM memory modules are available now in DDR2, DDR3, DDR3L, standard VLP and Blade VLP (ULP) form factors.   For detailed product specifications on Virtium's ECC SODIMM products, please go to:
