Talk the Talk. We have listed a few definitions and explanations to help keep you informed about memory. DIMM

Dual in-line memory module, comprises a series of dynamic random access memory integrated circuits. These modules are mounted on a printed circuit board and designed for use in personal computers, workstations and servers. DIMMs began to replace SIMMs (single in-line memory modules) as the predominant type of memory module as Intel’s Pentium processors began to gain market share.

ECC

Errors and Error Correction. An ECC-capable memory controller as used in many modern PCs can typically detect and correct errors of a single bit per 64-bit “word” (the unit of bus transfer), and detect (but not correct) errors of two bits per 64-bit word. Some systems also ‘scrub’ the errors, by writing the corrected version back to memory.

Registered Memory

Registered (also called buffered) memory modules have a register between the DRAM modules and the system’s memory controller. They place less electrical load on the memory controller and allow single systems to remain stable with more memory modules than they would have otherwise. Registered memory is more expensive because of the lower volume and the additional components, so it is usually found only in applications where the need for scalability and stability outweighs the need for a low price

Fully Buffered

Fully Buffered DIMM (or FB-DIMM) is a memory technology which can be used to increase reliability, speed and density of memory systems. Conventionally, data lines from the memory controller have to be connected to data lines in every DRAM module. As memory width, as well as access speed, increases, the signal degrades at the interface of the bus and the device. This limits the speed and/or the memory density. FB-DIMMs take a different approach to solve this problem. As with nearly all RAM specifications, the FB-DIMM specification was published by JEDEC.

Timings

Column Address Strobe (CAS) latency, or CL, is the delay time between the moment a memory controller tells the memory module to access a particular memory column on a RAM memory module, and the moment the data from given array location is available on the module’s output pins.

Ranking

The number of ranks on any DIMM is the number of independent sets of DRAMs that can be accessed for the full data bit-width of the DIMM i.e. 64 bits. The ranks cannot be accessed simultaneously as they share the same data path. The physical layout of the DRAM chips on the DIMM itself does not necessarily relate to the number of ranks. DIMMs are often referred to as “single-sided” or “double-sided” in reference to the location of the memory devices or “chips” being on only one or both sides of the DIMM printed-circuit board (PCB). These terms may cause confusion as they do not necessarily relate to how the DIMMs are logically organized or accessed. Definitions and descriptions courtesy of www.wikipedia.org

FastStream storage controllers are designed for applications that demand high-performance storage without the complexity of a traditional Fibre Channel SAN. With features like oneclick installation via a web-based interface and RAID tuned to your application, FastStream is an easy-to-use storage solution. As your need for storage capacity increases, simply add another JBOD – a much more affordable solution than purchasing multiple RAID storage arrays – and all of your storage can be managed through the FastStream.

6.1.2. Windows Server Software

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2008 R2 builds on the award-winning foundation of Windows Server 2008, expanding existing technology and adding new features to enable IT professionals to increase the reliability and flexibility of their server infrastructures. New virtualisation tools, Web resources, management enhancements, and exciting Windows 7 integration help save time, reduce costs, and provide a platform for a dynamic and efficiently managed data center. Powerful tools such as Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.5, updated Server Manager and Hyper-V platforms and Windows PowerShell version 2.0 combine to give customers greater control, increased efficiency and the ability to react to front-line business needs faster than ever before. Windows Server 2008 R2 includes many enhancements that make this release the most robust Windows Server Web application platform yet. It offers an updated Web server role, Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5, and greater support for .NET on Server Core. Design goals for IIS 7.5 concentrated on improvements that enable Web administrators to more easily deploy and manage Web applications that increase both reliability and scalability. Additionally, IIS 7.5 has streamlined management capabilities and provides more ways to customize your Web serving environment. The following improvements to IIS and the Windows Web platform are included in Windows Server 2008 R2: • • • • • • •

Reduced Effort to Administer and Support Web-Based Applications Reduced Support and Troubleshooting Effort Improved File-Transfer Services Ability to Extend Functionality and Features Improved .NET Support Improved Application Pool Security IIS.NET Community Portal

Enabling Server and Desktop Virtualisation Virtualisation is a major part of today’s data centers. The operating efficiencies offered by virtualisation allow organizations to dramatically reduce operational effort and power consumption. Windows Server 2008 R2 provides the following virtualisation types: Client and Server virtualisation provided by Hyper-V and Presentation virtualisation with Remote Desktop Services. Hyper-V Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a new version of Hyper-V. Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 includes a number of core areas of improvement for creating dynamic virtual data centers including increased availability and performance, improved management, simplified methods for deployment and new features including live migration. Remote Desktop Services (formerly known as Terminal Services) Remote Desktop Services provides users and administrators with both the features and the flexibility necessary to build the most robust access experience in any deployment scenario. To expand the Remote Desktop Services feature set, Microsoft has been investing in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, also known as VDI. VDI is a centralized desktop delivery architecture, which enables Windows and other desktop environments to run and be managed in virtual machines on a centralized server. Improving Power Management and Streamlining Management The ongoing management of servers in the data center is one of the most time-consuming tasks facing IT professionals today. Any management strategy you deploy must support the management of both your physical and virtual environments. To help with this problem, Windows Server 2008 R2 has new features to reduce the ongoing management of Windows Server 2008 R2 and to reduce the administrative effort for common day-to-day operational tasks. These include: • • • • • • •

Improved data center power consumption management Improved Management of File Services Improved remote administration Reduced administrative effort for administrative tasks performed interactively Enhanced command-line and automated management by using PowerShell version 2.0 Improved identity management Improved compliance with established standards and best practices
