HyperCloud Memory Helps Break the 1 Million Transaction per Minute Barrier in Virtualized x86-64 Benchmark Performance

HyperCloud Memory Helps Break the 1 Million Transaction per Minute Barrier in 
Virtualized x86-64 Benchmark Performance 
Breakthrough TPC-C Results With 768GB of HyperCloud 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 --   Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ:
NLST), a leading provider of high performance memory solutions for
the cloud computing market, announced that its 32GB HyperCloud HCDIMM
memory was an integral part of a system which broke the one million
transaction per minute barrier in TPC Benchmark C testing. 
Along with the latest server hardware technologies and Linux software
running Hypervisor on an x86 platform, 768GB of HyperCloud memory
enabled a server system for the first time to surpass the one million
transaction per minute barrier in a virtualized x86 platform. 
"The Transaction Processing Council is one of the most respected
benchmarking organizations in the server and supercomputing industry.
We're very pleased to have HyperCloud memory be part of a
record-setting performance as measured and recorded by TPC-C," said
C.K. Hong, CEO of Netlist.  
The TPC-C benchmark results can be accessed via our blog:

HyperCloud memory utilizes a distributed buffer architecture to
reduce latency and incorporates Netlist's patented rank
multiplication and load reduction technologies. Rank multiplication
enables more DRAM capacity and load reduction reduces the loading to
the memory interface allowing HCDIMMs to run at faster speeds at
maximum capacity. 
HCDIMMs allow servers to operate at their peak potential by speeding
up the transfer of data between CPU and memory. HyperCloud increases
performance in such key applications as analytics, simulation and as
shown by this benchmark, virtualization.
