Netlist Demonstrates NVDIMMs' Interoperability With Industry Standard Servers and DIMMs at SNIA Hands-On Lab

Sold Out Event at Flash Memory Summit to Demonstrate True Plug and Play Capabilities

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a leading provider of high performance memory storage solutions for the cloud computing and storage markets, and Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) member, demonstrates the operation of Netlist's NVvault™ NVDIMM in a broader ecosystem environment in the Hands-On Lab at the Flash Memory Summit.

The Hands-On Lab will overview the NVDIMM solution, detailing the critical operations and competitive advantages of the product category. The Hands-On Lab demo will use multiple suppliers' NVDIMMs running simultaneously. The demonstrations include: full system boot up and recognition of the NVDIMMs in the memory space; pattern writing to the NVDIMM memory space; power loss and backup operation; power reconnect, resume and restore; pattern verification in the NVDIMM memory space; NVDIMM space configuration as Type C memory, and recognition as a Non-volatile Disk using Intel-based Linux RAMDisk.

"We are proud to demonstrate the true plug and play interoperability of Netlist's NVvault™ NVDIMM and the significant performance advantages we provide," said Mitch Statham, Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Netlist. "We have a long history of serving the hybrid memory market. Our NVvault™ product family highlights our expertise and technical know-how in hybrid (DRAM to FLASH) DIMM technology."

Netlist's NVvault™ dramatically improves performance in applications such as metadata, indexing, cache, storage, logging, message queuing, on-line transactions, batch processing, and RAID applications requiring higher throughput while providing fault tolerance data integrity. NVvault™ NVDIMMs utilize Netlist's patented Vault NV controller and work in conjunction with general purpose JEDEC DDR3 RDIMMs, CPUs and other devices.

Key competitive attributes of Netlist's NVvault™ DDR3 NVDIMM product family include:

  • Highest performance in the industry
  • Low energy super-cap allowing for compact power module unit enabling 8GB in 1U systems
  • Extensive health monitoring, management and control features to support proactive system wellness
  • Planar JEDEC form factor to fit in all server types
  • Any two DIMMs in the system channel can operate together at 1600MTs

Netlist will be at the Flash Memory Summit taking place at the Santa Clara, CA, Convention Center on August 5, 6 and 7, 2014. Netlist can be located at booth #120 and at the Hands-On Lab during the Summit. 

Netlist is currently sampling NVvault™ DDR3 to qualified customers. Samples can be requested by visiting www.netlist.com. NVvault™ information can be obtained by downloading NVDIMM technical briefs by visiting www.netlist.com.
