Today Diablo Technologies announced that its Memory Channel Storage (MCS) architecture has been integrated into the latest edition of Lenovo’s X6 server solutions. The news comes on the heels of Diablo winning a series of legal battles against Netlist that have stalled deployment of the MCS technology.
Lenovo leverages MCS to power its eXFlash Memory-Channel Storage products. The newly announced X6 rack and blade servers support up to 32 eXFlash DIMMs per system, enabling a massive 12.8TBs of high-performance system storage.
We are extremely proud to be working with Lenovo on such a wide range of server platforms,” said Riccardo Badalone, CEO and Co-founder of Diablo Technologies. “Lenovo’s X6 systems were the first to support MCS and with this new announce, we look forward to delivering great solutions to even more clients with Lenovo and their business partners.”
The X6 server portfolio includes the four-socket System x3850 X6 and eight-socket System x3950 X6 rack-mount servers and the Flex System x280, x480, and x880 X6 Compute Node portfolio of two-socket, four-socket and eight-socket blade servers. Lenovo X6 systems with eXFlash technology deliver industry leading performance and value. eXFlash DIMMs integrate seamlessly with the X6 platform to deliver a best-in-class storage solution – accelerating a wide range of enterprise workloads including database, analytics and virtualization.
