IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a leading provider of high performance and hybrid memory solutions for the cloud computing and storage markets, announced the shipment of its 50,000th Vault product into the NAS storage appliance market.

NVvault™ and EXPRESSvault™ (a compact PCI Express solution) combine DRAM, Flash and Ultra-capacitor technologies to greatly improve system performance and provide battery-free cache backup of critical data during power outages and catastrophic events. Recognizing the benefits of NVvault and EXPRESSvault, leading storage vendors such as Cisco, Nimble Storage, Dell, Avere, and Tintri have designed Netlist's Vault technology into their NAS appliances.

"We're proud to have been selected by leading innovators in the storage market, and we look forward to working with each company to deliver compelling new products that bridge the gap between memory and storage," said C.K. Hong, CEO of Netlist.

Utilizing patented hybrid DRAM and NAND technology, Netlist Vault technology provides significant system performance improvement and eliminates system downtime, material replacement and write performance degradation associated with traditional solid-state drives. NVvault and EXPRESSvault are well-suited for journaling, data logging, and persistent memory applications which demand the lowest latencies and highest write Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS) performance.

Additional NVvault and EXPRESSvault information is available at the Netlist website:
