LSI Launches Nytro Product Portfolio of Intelligent, Flash-based Solutions

LSI Corporation today introduced the Nytro portfolio, a comprehensive family of solutions that combines PCIe flash technology with intelligent caching and management software to achieve accelerated application performance in datacenters and cloud environments.

The amount of data being stored and accessed worldwide is growing at an exponential rate, outpacing the ability of traditional storage architectures to keep up. This creates bottlenecks, throttling application performance and making it harder for companies to extract the full value from data. Nytro solutions allow datacenters to contend with massive data growth and speed the ability of databases and other applications to access data and provide real-time analytics and reporting.

ADATA Takes the Lead with the Launch of DDR3L ECC SO-DIMM for Micro-Servers

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, today launched a new line of DDR3L ECC SO-DIMM server memory modules, boasting low voltage, large densities, and rapid processing capability. They are designed and engineered especially for cloud computing solutions, and can greatly minimize the power consumption of a wide range of network systems.

A new kind of server is becoming increasingly needed for website hosting and mission critical applications. Micro-servers are a new type of server suited for the special workloads of data centers. Starting in the second half of 2009, many large data centers and information service suppliers have begun to use micro-servers. Micro-servers are taking an increasingly important role in small site dedicated hosting, lightweight web serving, and simple content delivery. Many semiconductor manufacturers have announced plans to enter the micro-server market, and are expected to release new low-power processors for use with high density servers.

HPC Server Market Delivers Record Revenues and 8.4% Growth in 2011

Worldwide factory revenue for the high performance computing (HPC) technical server market increased by 8.4% in full-year 2011 to reach a record $10.3 billion, up from $9.5 billion in 2010, according to the newly released International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide High-Performance Technical Server QView. The 2011 results exceeded IDC's forecast of 7.2% year-over-year revenue growth.

Unit shipments in 2011 declined 6.9% year over year as average selling prices grew, indicating a continued shift to large system sales. IBM and HP ended the year in a statistical tie for leadership with 32.6% and 32.1% of overall factory revenue market share, respectively. (Note: IDC declares a statistical tie in the worldwide server market when there is less than one percent difference in the factory revenues of two or more vendors.)

Transcend Launches New Server-Class DDR3 Memory Modules

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to announce its launch of 16 GB DDR3-1600 Registered DIMM (RDIMM) and 8GB DDR3L-1333 Low Voltage RDIMM modules. Fully compatible with the latest generation of Intel Xeon and Core i7 processors, the cost-effective DDR3 memory modules provide increased memory density and higher performance, while significantly reducing power consumption.

As Transcend's highest density DDR3 module, the 16GB DDR3-1600 RDIMM is constructed with top quality 4 Gb DDR3 1 Gbx4 35nm DRAM chips that deliver stable performance and durability. A single 16 GB memory module can lower power consumption by a staggering 75% compared with using four 4 GB modules, thereby saving energy and costs. The 16GB DDR3 module is rated at 1600 MHz with low latency of 11-11-11-28 and an operating voltage of a mere 1.5V. Offering memory bandwidth up to 12.8 GB/s and the flexibility to expand maximum capacity to 96 GB (per processor), the 16GB DDR3-1600 RDIMM module allows administrators to create a robust infrastructure that runs memory-intensive applications such as virtualization and cloud computing with ease.
