Shares of memory subsystems maker Netlist Inc. (NLST) rose as much as 23% on Wednesday after the company announced that Dell Inc. (DELL) has qualified both its 512 megabyte and 1 gigabyte memory-based subsystems, NetVault NV, for use in the PC-maker’s servers. Netlist’s NetVault NV would help Dell servers recover and retain critical data for weeks in the event of data-center power failures.
