A treat for enterprise customers

It's easy to get lazy towards the end of the work week as we look forward to the weekend, but not so at Micron. Rather than check out early, Micron today announced the introduction of a monolithic 8Gb DDR3 SDRAM component based on the company's latest-generation 25nm DRAM manufacturing process. According to Micron, the addition of an 8Gb monolithic component will enable cost-effective, high-capacity solutions optimized for large-scale, data-intensive workloads.

"The ability to scale with our customers' accelerating memory demand was a key driver in developing this 8Gb DDR3 design," said Robert Feurle , vice president of compute and networking marketing at Micron. "We are committed to working together with our partners to minimize risk, maximize flexibility and optimize total cost of ownership."

Micron says the availability of 8Gb-based solutions, including the mainstream 32GB RDIMM, will enable long-term, economically configured systems across the data center. Some prime applications that will benefit from this development include in-memory data analytics, search, and social networking.
