Inphi Ships 1 Million DDR3 LRDIMM Memory Buffers

Inphi's Memory Buffer Enables Increased Memory Performance and Capacity for Server Virtualization, Big Data Analytics, HPC and Enterprise Storage Applications

SHENZEN, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets, today announced it has shipped more than one million units of its Isolation Memory Buffer (iMB)™ for Load Reduced Dual-inline Memory Modules (LRDIMMs). LRDIMMs based on Inphi's iMB offer a significant performance improvement across high-density rack and blade server memory capacities -- a critical requirement as IT leaders look to boost data center performance and reliability, while maintaining compatibility with a host of critical applications.

Inphi's iMB technology, the industry's first fully compliant with the memory buffer specification of the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, helps reduce DRAM device and channel loading on the memory bus, enabling faster processing for big data applications and greater data center server consolidation with higher-capacity virtualized servers. This enables lower total cost of ownership with increased performance for cloud computing data center operators and Fortune 1000 enterprise data centers.

"This milestone is a testimony to Inphi's continued LRDIMM memory buffer leadership and focus on delivering valued products for enterprise and cloud data centers worldwide. In 2013 alone, our memory buffer revenue grew by 270%," said Vinod Lakhani, Inphi's vice president, Memory and Storage Interconnect. "Inphi led the industry standard definition of LRDIMMs at JEDEC and continues to aggressively invest in next-generation memory interconnect technologies to extend our technical and market leadership for the upcoming Intel DDR4 server platforms."

"Dell has worked very closely with Inphi to enable high-capacity LRDIMM memory solutions on our industry-leading PowerEdge servers," said Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, vice president of Server Engineering at Dell. "The combination of Inphi's LRDIMM technology and Dell PowerEdge servers has enabled our enterprise and data center customers to address their growing memory requirements while lowering overall total cost of ownership."

"Intel worked with Inphi and the server memory ecosystem to help define and enable LRDIMMs over the past five years. We are extremely pleased to witness the volume ramp of LRDIMMs as the value proposition accelerated with the launch of Intel's® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v2 product family and cost effective memory modules," said Geof Findley, director, Platform Memory Operations at Intel. "The value and importance of Inphi's LRDIMM technology will continue to rise as we enable and rollout our upcoming next-generation DDR4 server platforms."

"Micron leveraged Inphi's LRDIMM buffers in its high-capacity server DIMMs," said Robert Feurle, vice president of DRAM marketing at Micron. "We see significant growth opportunities for our LRDIMMs in addressing the large memory capacity requirements of in-memory database and big data analytics markets."

In an independent report made by the technology assessment company Principled Technologies, analysts found that doubling a server systems memory with LRDIMM memory and then using Inphi's iMB technology to reduce the data load times could produce up to 148.1 percent better performance(1).

Similarly, a recent Gartner report estimates that two-thirds of the server workloads are virtualized -- an environment that Inphi's iMB technology can optimize. This includes application, Web and database servers; hosted virtual desktops [HVDs]; and file, print and security servers that would normally be deployed on standard physical servers(2).

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
