Importance Of Understanding Server Memory Requirements In Data Centers

Blade Server vs Rack Server

Virtualization, big data, and the cloud are the top three drivers that are changing the rules for flexibility and elasticity in data centers. Datacenter growth is escalating, costs are rising, and there is a massive demand to support data that must move quickly and efficiently.

The demand for ubiquitous access to content generated by consumers and companies is exhausting resources. The performance of systems in the data center is a priority, and capacity, cost, and power issues are considered significant.

In this sense, server memory plays a vital role in meeting user demand. Currently, it is difficult to know how to choose the right type of memory configuration required to get the desired results? And memory is often not considered a solution to improve performance, as the immediate reaction is to add more servers without looking at the best way to maximize the use of poorly used servers that are installed.

Balancing low power consumption with capacity and performance requires an understanding of the role memory plays. Memory has evolved to become one of the most important components of the data center. Server processors (often wasted) are capable of processing multiple threads on many cores to maximize the use of a single server. Without sufficient or well-configured memory, performance degrades, and servers do not reach their full potential. Rather than automatically adding more servers to improve performance, adding additional memory will almost always solve problems and reduce complexity and cost.

To get a better idea of ​​how additional server memory can help data centers efficiently improve overall performance and ensure that new memory simplifies the allocation of resources without disrupting business, we have some important points to consider are attached:

Identify the role and goals of a given server or servers like HPE ProLiant DL160 Gen10 in the data center. Define the order of importance based on better performance and speed, reduction of energy consumption, or greater capacity.

Second, check the processor’s capacity to determine the maximum memory speed it can support. It is important to note that although memory is considered a common technology with built-in industry standards, it does not mean that all memory modules will be supported by all servers, as compatibility issues between memory module components and your server may arise.

 An IBM server, for example, may have height restrictions and require very low profile design (VLP) memory, or an HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 server may have compatibility problems with certain registry components or DRAM memory brands, this is It is very important to choose a memory that is guaranteed to be compatible with a specific server system.
