Today, Crucial announced the launch of its all-new 64GB DDR3L Load-Reduced DIMMs for use in enterprise servers. Crucial says that the new LRDIMMs enable more DIMMs per channel which is able to double the memory capacity per server, and saves companies money by not having to purchase additional machines.
These new 64GB Crucial DDR3L Load-Reduced DIMMs offer up to a 35-percent increase in memory bandwidth when compared to standard DIMMs, and are much more power efficient as they operate on 1.35V over the 1.5V standard found in other DIMMs. The company says that these new memory modules are also compatible with OEM servers and warranties which allows users to upgrade their existing infrastructures without having to shell out the cost for new systems.
"For memory-intensive server applications such as cloud computing, virtualization, and in-memory databases, optimizing the capabilities of new or existing hardware is by far a more cost-effective solution than purchasing additional servers," said Michael Moreland, worldwide DRAM product marketing manager, Crucial. "The new 64GB Crucial LRDIMMs allow servers to reach the maximum amount of installed memory possible, which can enable dramatic performance gains in memory bandwidth and overall server productivity, all while reducing power costs relative to adding additional servers."
