Kingston Launches Innovative, Web-Based Server Memory Calculator

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingston Technology Company today announced the launch of its innovative Server Memory Calculator, a ground-breaking, web-based tool designed to recommend the most effective amount of memory for a server to achieve optimal computing performance.

Immediately available, the new Kingston Server Memory Calculator will help IS professionals determine the optimal amount of RAM for their servers, by performing an initial calculation and subsequently presenting a range of recommended RAM for a server.

The Kingston Server Memory Calculator asks specific questions in order to assess the demands of one's server. Some of the questions include the age of the server, the platform or operating system, the processor speed, the number of processors and the number of users on a given server. The initial calculation can be refined by a user's response to an additional set of questions, such as the migration to Windows NT 5.0 or what memory-intensive programs are presently being utilized on the server.

"This tool will allow IS professionals to determine the demands on their server's hardware and then assist them in finding the exact amount of memory required for optimal performance," said Jackie Barrera, product manager, Kingston. "Our Server Memory Calculator tool has been designed to help those who specify, recommend, or buy server upgrades in a manner that's both easy to use and convenient since it's web-based," continued Barrera.

STAT resources developed the Kingston Server Memory Calculator from research conducted on more than 500 servers drawn from a variety of corporate environments. Research addressed evaluations focused on levels of performance within basic system architectures and accounted for the functions performed and the operating system in use.

"Using sophisticated multivariate statistical procedures, memory requirements were analyzed to classify and differentiate servers in typical organizational environments. We applied the most advanced statistical modeling techniques available to give Kingston a unique tool to offer the IT professional," explained Susan Ellerin, Ph.D., president of STAT Resources. Ellerin added, "We not only created a state-of-the-art basis for determining memory requirements, but also the first interactive memory optimization calculator ever made available on the internet." The Server Memory Calculator is currently available on-line. Users can easily access the tool via the Kingston web site at:
