Virtualization Challenges

The ability to host a growing number of virtual machines (VMs) running memory intensive applications on each physical server is a critical element in the design and operation of today’s advanced data centers. Performance optimization of VM servers requires high-capacity and high-speed memory to enhance on-demand scalability while controlling costs.

Because every virtual machine on the host reserves a portion of the available system memory to support its users and applications, the amount of DRAM memory required increases with the number of VMs hosted.

HyperCloud HCDIMM Advantage

HyperCloud HCDIMM is enabling unprecedented scalability and performance in virtualized servers:

  • Delivering more memory per dual processor server
  • Providing more memory per VM
  • Enabling more VMs per core
  • Increasing consolidation ratios
  • Increasing application performance
  • Reducing capital expenses and TCO

HyperCloud HCDIMMs are the only solution to achieve maximum memory at maximum speed on cost effective dual processor servers.
