Microsoft and Samsung Cooperate on More Efficient Cloud Implementation


By Greentech Lead Team: Samsung Electronics announced
that a system based on Samsung’s 20nm-class DDR3 memory and solid state drives
(SSDs) together with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V proved to be
twice as fast as current memory configurations for servers setting up virtual
machine instances and recovering data in private cloud environments.

The tests were conducted at the Microsoft Technology
Center (MTC) in Munich. These advanced configurations also consumed as much as
50 percent less power per server. Test results show that the joint solution
offers energy savings, and improves system performance as well.

Samsung’s 20nm-class Green was tested in 8GB DDR3
registered dual inline memory modules and in the SATA 6Gb/s 256GB SSD PM830
series, installed on server systems running virtualized environments with the
Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise operating system and Hyper-V. They delivered
power conservation and time savings of 50 percent compared to systems using
40nm-class DDR3 and enterprise grade HDD.

Test platforms equipped with Samsung Green SSDs are now
available at MTC Munich and 20nm-class DDR3 server modules will be available at
MTC Munich in the second quarter of this year.

“In an increasingly complex IT world, Microsoft
Technology Centers (MTC) are set to provide complete solutions to customers, and
we achieve this goal through strong collaboration with our partners. With
Samsung’s Green DRAM and SSDs, we have just such a partner on board at the MTC
in Munich to educate and to provide highly advanced solutions to our
customers,” said Chris
Bayer, director, MTC Munich.

Samsung plans to expand the collaboration with MTC in
both technological advancements and marketing promotions in a diversity of
areas including solutions for data centers, and keep on developing green
computing solutions for more effective levels of IT investment.

Samsung enabled the Green memory solution that combines
20nm-class DDR3 modules and SATA 6Gbps SSDs for advanced server systems only
five months after collaborating with MTC Munich
for development of an optimized server solution that utilizes 30nm-class green
DDR3 memory modules.

“By utilizing the green server solution which
combines the two companies’ leading-edge developments including green
20nm-class DRAM and SSD, our customers can enjoy achieving a high level of
performance and efficiency in their server systems and also highly effective IT
investment without having to increase the total cost of ownership,” said
Wanhoon Hong, executive vice president of memory sales & marketing, Device
Solutions, Samsung Electronics.  

Samsung Electronics recently partnered  with
Electronic Recyclers International (ERI) for the E-Waste Collection Event on
December 10th at no charge to consumers.
