Memory spec terms
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
NON-ECC/Non-parity Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory.
ECC/Parity ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses.
Unbuffered Most PCs and workstations use unbuffered memory which is faster than registered memory.
Registered/Buffered Registered or buffered modules delay all information transferred to the module by one clock cycle. This type of memory is primarily used in servers.
Fully buffered Designed for next-generation servers, features an advanced memory buffer.
CL CAS (column address strobe) latency, which is the number of clock cycles it takes before data starts to flow after a command is received. Lower CL is faster. Modules with different CL can be mixed on a system, but the system will only run at the highest (slowest) CL.
Component configuration (For example: 64Meg x 64) Indicates the size of the memory chip components on the module.
Voltage For example 2.6V. Indicates the power used by the module. The lower the better.
Designed for blade, rack, and other space-constrained servers
Enables improved airflow and cooling
100% component and module tested to mission-critical server standards
Optimized for the Intel® Xeon® processor product families
Compatible with OEM servers and OEM warranties
Limited lifetime warranty
The easiest way to improve performance in small form factor servers
Pack more performance into space-constrained rack and blade servers with memory that’s 40% shorter than standard size modules. Measuring just 18.75mm tall, Crucial VLP RDIMMs allow for improved airflow and more effective cooling in small form factor servers. Get all the benefits of Crucial server memory – just in a smaller package.
Enhance hyperscale computing, virtualization, cloud computing, Big Data, and more
For memory-dependent server applications, Crucial server memory is an ideal way to increase memory bandwidth and capacity while also reducing power expenses. Since memory often functions as a fixed (non-shared) component, it’s one of the biggest performance constraints for data centers. Crucial VLP RDIMMs are optimized for Intel Xeon processor product families, allowing you to handle diverse enterprise workloads with ease.
Enable better airflow and increase system reliability and performance
Because of their size, Crucial VLP RDIMMs can be installed at a 90-degree angle to the motherboard, which enables better airflow to keep the system cool while the memory runs at high speeds. Lower system temperatures in turn help minimize your total cost of ownership by reducing the risk of damage caused by the system overheating. Crucial VLP RDIMMs are also backed by the Reliance Program* and a limited lifetime warranty.
Available in the latest technology
Built with new technology tailored for the latest Intel platforms, Crucial DDR4 VLP RDIMMs allow you to increase system performance with memory speeds up to 2666 MT/s and densities up to 32GB. Increasing the installed memory capacity of each server with modules equipped with 8Gb-based components enables your systems to reach their full performance potential.
Backed by the Reliance Program*
When you make an enterprise-level investment in Crucial products, we believe you deserve a higher level of support. The Reliance Program offers qualified customers up to four additional benefits that affirm our commitment to your servers through service call reimbursements, on-site spares, 24/7 technical support through our direct hotline, and special bulk shipping options.
Micron® quality – A higher level of reliability
Server memory that’s built to last requires lasting industry relationships and technology collaboration over multiple product cycles. As a brand of Micron, we work closely with the industry leaders in CPU and platform development, along with the leading server and motherboard manufacturers to enable the next level of memory technology. The result? More than 35 years of expertise that’s poured into die selection, DRAM and PCB design, module assembly, and testing from start to finish. This can only be achieved by a true memory manufacturer – don’t settle for anything less.
