Dataram Doubles Memory to Half Terabyte Capacity in Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 Servers
Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAM), a leading provider of server and workstation memory, today announced upgrades of Sun Microsystems SPARC Enterprise M5000 servers to an industry leading 512GB of memory capacity. Until now, this server was only available with up to 256GB of memory. Dataram is first to deliver the high capacity 8GB memory modules for this server.
The DRSM5000D/64GB memory upgrades consist of eight x 8GB capacity PC2-5300, DDR2-667 Registered ECC memory modules. One of Dataram's customer's, a leading provider of analytical and transactional database information, needed a half terabyte memory capacity for a Solaris based database. At their datacenter, 64 high-capacity 8GB DIMMs were successfully installed in an M5000 server enabling 512GB. Now with in-memory database capability, the company can run updates of its proprietary database on a nightly basis. Using existing conventional storage infrastructure, database updates could only be done weekly.
"We strive to deliver the products our customers need to maintain a competitive advantage in their respective markets. Once again, Dataram memory provides the speed and performance needed by doubling the capacity currently available," stated Paul Henke, Director Technology & Product Management.
The DRSM5000D/64GB memory upgrades also double the capacity of the Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 server to 256GB. Dataram has immediate availability of high capacity, cost saving memory upgrades for the most popular servers and all feature a Lifetime Warranty.
