Crucial 128 GB DDR4 LRDIMM Server Memory Now Available

Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the immediate availability of 128GB DDR4 LRDIMMs, a new offering in its server memory product portfolio. The 128GB DDR4 LRDIMM is the highest density server memory module that Crucial has offered to date, and with speeds starting at 2666 MT/s, the new DDR4 server memory modules increase the installed memory capacity per server to help maximize CPU and server hardware capabilities.

Memory-dependent server applications like virtualization, in-memory database computing, and high-performance computing (HPC) require massive amounts of available RAM. These new server modules support a number of memory-intensive computing applications, such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Microsoft Azure, VMware VDI, Cloudera, Hortonworks and SAP HANA. Additionally, each module is 100 percent component- and module-tested to mission-critical server standards, ensuring quality from start to finish through a 34-stage manufacturing process and more than 100 tests and verifications. For qualified customers, the 128 GB LRDIMM server modules are also backed by the Crucial Reliance Program.
"Performance bottlenecks weaken an organization's infrastructure and impede overall productivity," said Michael Moreland, Crucial worldwide product manager. "Increasing the memory footprint per server can help IT managers extend the life of their current infrastructure so that workloads can thrive."

The new 128GB DDR4 LRDIMMs are optimized for the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Processor family, allowing companies to maximize next-generation deployments. All Crucial memory is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Key Messages:
  • Increased performance and memory capacity with module densities up to 128GB
  • Available in speeds starting at 2666 MT/s
  • 100% component and module tested to mission-critical server standards
  • Compatible with OEM servers
  • Optimized for Intel Xeon Scalable Processor family
  • Backed by a limited lifetime warranty and the Crucial Reliance Program

I was thinking they finally managed to find out how to stick 128GB on a single ram module.....

What? No RGB?!
These arent for the mainstream consumer.

It's 128GB ON ONE STICK OF MEMORY. I hope I live to see 128TB on one stick of memory.
When I was 16, I said something siliar about 16MBs of memory and living to see 16GB sticks of ram.

Unless you have a very short life expectancy, don't count out what two decades of progress can do.

Still seems like a bargain compared to the $13k MSRP of the flagship Xeon.
Also puts it into perspective: when you need to load up your dual Xeon box with 24 of these buggers, the 13k Xeon doesn't seem nearly as steep anymore :)

Got a spare $500000 for an 8-processor, 224C/448T, 12TB memory server? I wonder if there is even a single user who will ever buy such a system.

Define "single-user". If companies count, there are quite a few out there who buy multiple of those monsters (for redundancy and performance), and even more who at least consider it vs engineering around the 2CPU standard. Typically you see these in big database and big storage applications because the huge RAM caches are absolute godsends with some usage patterns.

@xkm1948 would love to have 512GB of ram in 4 DIMMs.

Please. *I*'d love to have an 8CPU Broadwell-EX machine with 24TiB of RAM (yeah.. rather hilariously, the older gen platform can take twice the RAM of the newest when maxxed out...). POWER9 2-8CPU can also come in. Or even ARM.

I ain't picky!

He actually uses the 128GB of memory in his machine for genomics, not because he wants the shiny.

I also have uses for such large amounts of RAM (in my case toying around with disk caching and RAMdisks and such other fun)
