Customers continue to look for ways to increase their return on their IT investments and continue to drive system performance. This includes delivering more virtual machines as well as increased performance from the DB-based applications. Virtualization demands maximum memory to run the most-efficient virtual environments, and Big Data, Analytics, and SAP Hana need maximum memory capacity and bandwidth. Customers need to deliver increased performance for their workloads.

IBM offers a complete DDR3 memory portfolio for IBM System x and BladeCenter servers and IBM Flex System compute nodes that will help improve the performance of your workloads. Many applications will see immediate performance benefits with more memory. The IBM DDR3 portfolio includes RDIMMs with advanced error correction for reliability, performance and maximum memory capacity. This includes both 1.5 V and 1.35 V offerings to maximize workload performance and energy efficiency. IBM also offers 1.5 V and 1.35 V UDIMMs with basic error correction. For the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2 , Samsung’s Green DDR3 32 GB LRDIMMs are supported at 3 DIMMs Per Channel (DPC) configurations for up to 768 GB on select System x servers. In addition, the Samsung Green DDR3 32 GB VLP RDIMM for the IBM BladeCenter HX5 enables double the memory previously offered on this Intel Xeon Processor E7-8800/4800/2800 based server. For the Intel Xeon Processor E7-4800/8800 v2 based IBM X6 4- socket and 8- socket enterprise servers, SK hynix’s DDR3 64 GB LRDIMMs are supported for maximum memory.
