Empowering a Sea of Innovation

I’m always pleased to hear of manufacturers making major inroads in conjunction with the use of our green memory. One of the latest to successfully integrate Samsung’s green memory into its servers is SeaMicro, a true innovator in the data center marketplace. SeaMicro relies on the speed and energy savings of Samsung’s Green DDR3 to increase the efficiency of its new SM10000-XE microserver, which is receiving wide industry recognition.

SeaMicro‘s microservers are designed specifically for the unique requirements of large data center environments. Our Green DDR3 is providing these microservers with breakthrough reductions in power and space. In fact, SeaMicro’s SM10000-XE contains a 64 quad-core Intel® Xeon® processor, E3-1260L CPUs for 256 2.4 GHz cores in a 10 rack unit system, and 1,024 cores in a standard rack. The SM10000-XE is even capable of supporting up to 32 GB of Samsung DRAM per socket, for a system total of up to 2.04 terabytes!

 In addition to SeaMicro, other companies have recognized the advantages of Samsung’s Green DDR3.With its energy-efficient design and advanced performance, our Green DDR3 brings to  SeaMicro’s new microservers a 70 percent power savings for memory components, 30nm class memory process technology and 1.35 memory voltage.  Its small outline dual in-line memory module  with error correction circuitry ECC_SODIMM) has also been applauded for its highly space efficient form factor, measuring only 67.6 x 30 mm.

Data centers now account for 23 percent of all the power consumed by information communication technology in the world. Samsung’s 30nm green DDR3 stands to greatly impact overall energy savings in the IT sector by providing microservers with the ability to consume only 1.04 watts/GB. And as the industry adapts to our newest 20nm class of green memory, we’ll see consumption as low as 0.29 watts/GB. I hope you will agree that’s an incredible savings.

We are delighted that SeaMicro understands the full extent of our value proposition as it embraces our DDR3 in its latest microservers, which now bring the massive benefits of microservers to all segments of the scale-out data center.  

What are your thoughts on the overall implications of green memory for the data center?
