SMART Modular Technologies, a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., (Nasdaq: SGH), has expanded its support for data centre networking applications with the introduction of DuraMemory™ high-density, very low profile DIMMs and Mini-DIMMs for hyperscale network switching. These products are ideal for maximising network bandwidth and reliability, which is critical to data centre networking requirements.
Network memory dictates the amount of data stored or transferred in switching and routing equipment. Low density as well as poor quality memory can disrupt the performance of a network by acting as a bottleneck to data transfer. The rating and attributes of memory can also greatly affect data centre network’s overall efficiency.
Propriety data centre networking equipment, such as Network Interface Cards (NICs), routers and switches have become highly specialised. Very dense compact equipment is being developed, and as 5G rollouts continue, a shift in network design is critical to support 5G service capabilities. Memory features contained in SMART Modular’s new DuraMemory low profile DIMMs and Mini-DIMMs, which include ultra-low latency and high capacities, enable various networks to connect multiple devices and systems into one, seamless and automated complete system.
SMART Modular’s high density DuraMemory VLP or ULP DIMMs and Mini-DIMMs are also used in hyperscale data centre networking applications to maximise data centre connectivity and throughput. “We see tremendous opportunity in providing our customers with exact-fit networking memory solutions to support all types of data centre networking equipment,” stated Arthur Sainio, Director, product marketing for DRAM for SMART Modular Technologies. He concluded, “SMART Modular maintains the highest quality levels to support customers’ mission-critical use-case requirements.”
