Upgrade existing system memory with ease.
WDs Ultrastar Memory Drives are designed to let you achieve more for less.
They can be used to scale existing system memory, promote server consolidation, and reduce the complexity of
splitting large multi-TB data sets across multiple servers.
Provide your applications with large amounts of system memory at a fraction of the cost of DRAM without changes to your OS and application stacks. Western Digitals advanced software algorithms are designed to maintain near DRAM-like performance across a variety of applications with its main target being highly parallel workloads with high numbers of transactions.
Web application caching in particular requires large amounts of system memory to quickly ingest and analyze vast streams of data from Internet users, transaction events, and IoT devices. High concurrency environments, such as virtualized servers and container-based applications, are prime examples where memory usage can quickly outpace processing capabilities, requiring expensive additional scale-out servers to house the extra memory and virtual machines.
