CIARA Qualifies Netlist's Hypercloud™ Memory on High Performance Computing Servers

IRVINE, Calif., June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that its HyperCloud™ Memory module has been qualified on CIARA Atlas servers and on Titan graphics processing unit (GPU) systems. HyperCloud's integration into CIARA servers enhances high-performance computing capabilities while reducing simulation run times. As a result, CIARA is able to run more advanced memory intensive simulations within a given timeframe and increase overall productivity for end-users.

"HyperCloud ensures our customers can maximize server utilization allowing more complex simulations to run in less time than before," said Patrick Scateni, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CIARA. "The integration of HyperCloud positions us to support and develop new levels of high-performance computing grids with increased performance. Netlist is clearly a leader in memory advancements for the high-performance computing (HPC) user."

CIARA Atlas servers and Titan GPU solutions offer a high-density solution for HPC applications and are ideal for network infrastructure, front-end enterprise and minimal-downtime cluster server systems. With HyperCloud, CIARA is able to increase system memory without compromising memory speed. This eliminates simulation cache misses and input/output (I/O) delays. By overcoming traditional memory bottlenecks, HyperCloud optimizes performances on memory constrained servers.

"CIARA is a leader in HPC systems and its qualification of HyperCloud is yet another validation of HyperCloud's performance benefits," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing of Netlist. "We look forward to providing CIARA's customers with exceptional solution improving memory performance and simulation run times."
