Samsung Begins Mass Producing 30nm-class 32GB Memory Modules

This type of memory is very good for large database clusters and mid to large VM environments. Using less memory DIMMs to keep speeds at 1333MHz for better performance is especially a challenge now even when using 16GB memory modules. Any other configuration of modules using different size modules can result in slower speeds. Only a few verified (vendor verified) configs with these size modules allow you to run at 1333MHz and even then, they are dual ranked. Dual ranked modules are very expensive vs quad ranked which are slower and less expensive. If your boss is a DBA or a VM expert and speed/performance is everything, money should be no object for the higher performance memory.

Hopefully as the modules get bigger (and eventually faster) the server community will have more options of configurations to choose from in order to keep performance at a Maximum!
