Netlist Announces the Qualification of 32GB HyperCloud® for HP's ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Server

Marries the World's Fastest Server Memory With the World's Highest Volume Server

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2013) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a leading provider of high performance and hybrid memory solutions for the cloud computing and storage markets, announced that its 32GB HyperCloud® memory modules have been qualified on the world's best-selling server, HP's ProLiant DL380p Gen8.

32GB 1333 HCDIMMs are the highest performing memory in ProLiant DL380p Gen8 servers. In a 768GB, 1333MT/second HP server configuration, HyperCloud® provides up to 78% faster data throughput compared to any other memory technology at the same density. In real-life application tests utilizing SPECfp2006_rate base measurement, a commonly-used benchmark for commercial applications, this faster data throughput translated to a 38% performance improvement over LRDIMM.

"After extensive collaborative work with HP, we are very pleased to complete the design-in of 32GB HyperCloud®," said C.K. Hong, CEO of Netlist. "By bringing the world's fastest server memory technology to the world's top selling server, we provide HP an unparalleled performance advantage across a variety of applications for the mainstream server market."

HyperCloud® utilizes Netlist's patented distributed architecture which is being broadly adopted by the industry for DDR4 LRDIMM. Netlist has made available this superior architecture for today's DDR3 servers, a generation ahead of the industry.

32GB HyperCloud® can be ordered directly through HP sales. Information on HyperCloud's industry leading performance, including recent independent tests and OEM qualifications, can be found at
