Lexar Media has introduced 8GB Crucial DDR3-1066 (PC3-8500) CL9 very low-profile (VLP), ECC registered dual in-line memory modules (RDIMMs), enabling blade and low-profile server users to populate their systems with up to 144GB of memory. The new modules are compatible with Intel Xeon processors based on the Nehalem architecture, according to the company.
VLP memory modules are designed to stand vertically in order to accommodate additional memory modules and improve system airflow.
"Our customers continue to adopt high-density computing solutions like blade servers, not only as they upgrade existing applications and platforms, but also as they adopt technologies like virtualization. The new 8GB Crucial DDR3-1066 VLP RDIMMs enable them to move to these solutions without compromising memory density, performance, or quality," says Jim Jardine, Lexar Media senior worldwide product manager.
