Netlist's HyperCloud Memory Tackles Big Data Bottlenecks at SC11

HyperCloud Performance Benefits Demonstrated With Sybase Analytics Software; Visit Netlist at SC11, Booth 2938

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Nov 10, 2011) - Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announces the showcase of its flagship HyperCloud™ memory module and Vault™ cache-to-flash non-volatile DIMM portfolio at SC11, the international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis. Netlist also introduces the latest in its series of HyperCloud whitepapers, "Improving Data Analytics Performance Using HyperCloud Memory."

HyperCloud is the industry leading high-performance, load-reduced virtual dual rank RDIMM and overcomes traditional memory bottlenecks that can limit server DRAM memory capacity and bandwidth. Netlist validated HyperCloud's significant performance advantages for big data analytics workloads when compared to RDIMM memory on an industry standard two-processor server running Sybase IQ. Sybase IQ database software targets mission-critical business intelligence, analytics and data warehousing challenges. Using financial services workload models, which query financial market data or "tick data," HyperCloud delivers the following performance improvements:

  • Up to 90% performance gains for inter-day and intra-day queries with 16-32 concurrent database users;
  • 68% inter-day query average performance gain with 1 to 32 concurrent database users;
  • 31% query average performance gain with 1 to 32 concurrent database queries

"The use of big data and predictive analytics is fast becoming a valuable tool that enterprises are using to cut costs and maximize opportunities. Increasing server memory capacity and bandwidth is necessary to maintain and improve the performance of these tools," said Dan Olds of Gabriel Consulting Group. "Wall Street firms use analytics to build models and trading algorithms to maximize their market returns."

Netlist will showcase its product portfolio, including HyperCloud high performance memory and Vault cache-to-flash non-volatile memory modules, at SC11 in booth number 2938 taking place in Seattle November 14-17.

In addition to its product showcase, Netlist's Philip Swart, Vault technical marketing manager, will also present during the disruptive technologies session. The talk will detail how NVvault™ enables reliable and scalable cache data protection for today's big data storage equipment. The session will take place daily Tuesday through Thursday, November 15-17 at 10:30 a.m. in booth number WL1, WSCC 6th floor foyer.
