Kingston Server Memory

Reliable memory for your server

Selecting the right memory for your server is as important as choosing the right manufacturer. Kingston server memory is designed to be ultra-reliable and reduce your total cost of ownership. Purchase it by brand or by specification to get the exact RAM you need.

  • ValueRAM Server Memory

    Kingston® invests millions in the quality of its modules today to reduce your total cost of ownership tomorrow. The resulting performance, stability and long-term reliability are among the reasons Kingston ValueRAM has become a worldwide industry standard.

    ValueRAM is made from components sourced from Tier-1 quality suppliers and ideal for customers who know what specs they need for their systems.

  • JEDEC Spec

    As a long-time member of the JEDEC Board of Directors, Kingston Technology helps set the industry standards for memory technology. All Kingston memory is fully JEDEC compliant, an important specification used by leading semiconductor manufacturers.

  • ValueRAM Server Premier Memory

    ValueRAM Server Premier modules are manufactured using a locked Bill of Materials (BOM), which is ideal for those who use or build white box systems and require a consistent brand and revision of DRAM. Server Premier memory offers full BOM control (down to the chip die revision) for those designing server memory into essential hardware for high availability systems.

    Product Change Notification (PCN)

    Server Premier modules are built using the same components every time and include advanced product change notification (PCN). PCN ensures ample time for requalification and testing at the customer site. With ValueRAM Server Premier, you can expect the same degree of reliability and performance that IT professionals worldwide have come to depend on from Kingston memory.

  • Full BOM Control

    ValueRAM Server Premier modules are manufactured using a locked Bill of Materials (BOM), which is ideal for those who use or build white box systems and require a consistent brand and revision of DRAM. Server Premier memory is JEDEC compliant and offers full BOM control (down to the chip die revision) for those designing server memory into essential hardware for high availability systems. More

  • ValueRAM Manufacturer Certified or Validated Server Memory

    Kingston ValueRAM memory has been tested and qualified to meet specific manufacturer specifications. It’s easy to determine which parts have been qualified for use, just select your motherboard manufacturer below.

    Kingston and Intel Certifications

    Kingston has been working with Intel since 1998 to create memory ideal for Intel systems. Kingston ValueRAM memory is tested to meet Intel’s memory module specifications for compatibility with Intel chipsets. Kingston memory has been posted on board-specific tested memory lists on Intel’s site and Kingston has developed I-part numbers to make it easy to identify compatible parts.

  • Manufacturer Validation

    Kingston works with leading server motherboard manufacturers to qualify its industry standard memory on their platforms. Kingston also works with Advanced Validation Labs (AVL) to provide compatibility certification on a select list of SuperMicro server boards. Select a manufacturer to learn more.

  • Kingston Memory for OEM Branded Systems

    From the world’s independent memory leader. Each Kingston system-specific module is designed, manufactured, tested and tailored to maximize the performance of a specific brand name computer system and guaranteed to be compatible in that system.

    Kingston’s system-specific server memory is ideal for customers who use OEM or branded systems and know the name and model number of their system.

  • Guaranteed Compatibility

    Kingston system-specific memory is guaranteed to be compatible so you can rest assured you’re getting the highest quality memory, tailored to your specific computer and backed by 100-percent testing and legendary Kingston reliability.

Why upgrade?

The easiest way to improve performance is with a memory upgrade. Consider upgrading if you’re implementing a new database program, adding commerce functionality to your company’s website, adding users to an application or if you are faced with an increasing virtual workload.

Upgrading your server’s memory can serve larger databases, provide faster responses for those using the cloud and improve speed for applications living in memory.


By increasing memory, you allow more virtual machines and can also increase allocation to maximize your existing hardware. Virtualization lowers total cost of ownership and more memory for VDI means a faster response when apps sit in memory.

Windows Server 2003 EOL

On July 15, 2015, Microsoft ends support for Windows 2003. As support ends, the numerous companies still using this operating system must migrate to Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2.

Rather than just swapping in Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2, organizations should understand the benefits available with the operating system upgrade. Read more



Maximizing Capacity for Servers

Adding or replacing your servers’ RAM is a cost-effective way to significantly boost its capacity while also improving efficiency – your servers can handle more VMs and distribute their load more effectively.

Maximizing Performance for Servers

Memory speed and bandwidth in servers is increasing to accommodate applications requiring high performance. Upgrading your server’s memory can have the biggest impact on performance – and it’s usually the easiest component to expand.

Latest platform memory implications

See the impact of such platforms as Romley, Westmere and Nehalem.

Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 (Romley or Sandy Bridge-EP)
Intel Xeon 5600 (Westmere-EP)
Intel Xeon 5500 (Nehalem-EP)

Minimizing Power for Servers

Energy costs are soaring, so reducing your server’s power consumption is more important than ever. Using low-voltage server memory and optimizing your installation with a low-power strategy can add up to serious savings.
