Crucial Announces 128GB DDR4 LRDIMM Server Memory
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
Crucial announced a new 128GB memory module for servers, and it is the largest module capacity from Crucial to date. The Crucial 128GB DDR4 LRDIMM 2666 MT/s server memory module will allow you to take your servers abilities to the max and install an impressive amount of total memory.
“We’re committed to helping organisations of all sizes reduce costly server performance slowdowns by offering reliable, quality, and high-density server memory,” said Michael Moreland, Crucial worldwide product manager. “These new Crucial 128GB DDR4 LRDIMM modules will help IT Managers extend the life of their current infrastructure as well as optimise new server deployments with best-in-class quality of service in mind.”
The module is optimised for memory-dependent server applications like virtualization, in-memory database computing, and high-performance computing (HPC). All of these tasks require a massive amount of available RAM. These new server modules support a number of memory-intensive computing applications, such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Microsoft Azure, VMware VDI, Cloudera, Hortonworks and SAP HANA.
Compatibility and Validation
Crucial naturally optimised the new memory modules for the Intel Xeon product family, both current and future. After all, those are the systems running these sort of modules.
Crucial tests each module to be 100 percent component- and module-tested to mission-critical server standards. That ensures quality from start to finish through a 34-stage manufacturing process and more than 100 tests and verifications.
The 128GB LRDIMM server module is also part of the Crucial Reliance Program for qualified customers.
Availability, Pricing, and Warranty
The company didn’t reveal a price at this time, but the new Crucial 128GB DDR4 LRDIMM server memory module will be available in Q3 2017.
We do know that the current 64GB modules go for around $950 each. With that in mind, it is easy to guess where the 128GB modules will land.
Like all the other Crucial memory modules, this one is also backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
