American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux and Android operating systems, is proud to announce the launch of OEM server systems with Aptio V support for Diablo Technologies’ Memory1.
Over the span of a year, AMI worked alongside Diablo Technologies to integrate AMI’s flagship Aptio V UEFI firmware features with Diablo’s Memory1 system memory module. With AMI’s support for Diablo’s Memory1 technology, OEMs in the server industry can expect higher capacities and greater performance when creating their system solutions. Together, Aptio V and Memory1 not only add memory capacity and economic value to OEMs, but also provide the tools to create high quality hardware solutions for their end users. The first shipment of server systems with this support is now publicly available and Aptio V is updated for Memory1 to support 3rd and 4th generation Intel Xeon (D- and E-series) server processors.
Aptio V from American Megatrends represents the “next generation” of UEFI BIOS firmware and comes fully equipped with support for the latest UEFI specifications. AMI leads in the UEFI/BIOS industry with over 30 years of development experience – and Aptio V is designed to exceed the expectations of various market segments, specifically the server, embedded, tablet, client, and ARM markets.
Diablo Technologies’ flagship Memory1 is a system memory solution that efficiently optimizes big data applications by providing up to 2TB of application memory in a single, dual-socket server. Memory1 128GB all-flash DDR4 DIMMs integrate seamlessly with standard servers without changes to the operating system, hardware or applications. With Memory1, OEMs can significantly lower the total cost of ownership for end users – creating more performance per server to benefit big data analytics, database and cloud applications. Diablo’s system memory solution is production released and available now through select server OEMs.
“This partnership with AMI has enabled a rapid market launch and the success of Memory1 in delivering Big Memory for Big Data,” said Mark Stibitz, Chief Executive Officer of Diablo Technologies. “Incorporating Memory1 support into Aptio V, the industry’s leading UEFI firmware solution for servers, provides multiple advantages to OEMs and end-users, along with the confidence of having a robust, easy to deploy, industry-standard solution.”
“The collaboration between AMI and Diablo Technologies to integrate Aptio V with DDR4 Memory1 modules is another sign of our commitment to embrace the very latest hardware protocols and standards in server design,” said Subramonian Shankar, President, CEO and Founder of American Megatrends. “We share the excitement of Diablo Technologies to be able to provide our OEMs with support for this technology, as we see its vast potential as the industry continues to move towards high-capacity, low cost, energy-efficient memory solutions for datacenter and big data applications,” he continued.
