Crucial has announced the "immediate availability of 128GB DDR4 LRDIMMs, a new offering in its server memory product portfolio".
The company tells us its "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 maximise CPU and server hardware capabilities".
So, what are some of the scenarios that can truly benefit from truly advanced and superfast memory?
Furthermore, Crucial states: "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% 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 128GB LRDIMM server modules are also backed by the Crucial Reliance Program."
Michael Moreland, Crucial worldwide product manager, said: "Performance bottlenecks weaken an organisation’s infrastructure and impede overall productivity.
“Increasing the memory footprint per server can help IT managers extend the life of their current infrastructure so that workloads can thrive.”
Crucial reminds us its new 128GB DDR4 LRDIMMs are "optimised for the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Processor family, allowing companies to maximise next-generation deployments".
The modules are available for purchase at Crucial online, and through "select global partners", with "all Crucial memory backed by a limited lifetime warranty".
