Crucial Supports Intel Demo Depot Program w. High-Density Server Memory Modules
Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, and Intel, a world leader in computing innovation, today announced the inclusion of Crucial server memory modules in the Intel Demo Depot Program. This service lends fully configured Intel Xeon-based servers to customers for evaluation and testing prior to final purchase. As a brand of Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world, Crucial supplies the Intel Demo Depot Program with DDR3L registered DIMMs ranging from 8 GB to 16 GB densities, in speeds of 1600 MT/s and 1333 MT/s to support Intel’s latest generation of servers.
The Intel Demo Depot Program consists of more than 200 servers and is available to interested customers throughout North America. Potential customers procure evaluation servers for 30-day periods to test equipment and proof-of-concept trials. Servers are also used by various technology manufacturers for demonstrations at tech-focused tradeshows and customer demos by Intel field account engineers.
“Launching a new server architecture requires close cooperation from the entire industry,” said David L. Brown, Director of Marketing for Intel Enterprise Platforms and Services Division (EPSD). “We are pleased to be partnering with Crucial to include their memory products in the Intel Server Systems based on the Intel Xeon Processor E5 Family we lend for validation and demos. Micron is a leader in server memory technology and a great fit for these EPSD boards and systems.”
Micron’s Systems Compatibility Group utilizes extensive qualification, validation, and testing procedures to ensure Crucial server modules are compatible with the widest range of servers and data center platforms available. By working directly with Intel, as well as many of the Intel-based server manufacturers, we are able to deliver server memory solutions that are compatible and offer reliable performance throughout the server system lifecycle.
“The Intel Demo Depot Program offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with a global leader and trusted name in servers,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing manager, Crucial. “Supporting Intel server customers helps us to solidify our relationship with Intel and expand our presence in the server and data center space.”
