Over 90 percent of enterprises are in the midst of their digital transformation journey to become data-centric businesses. Thus, they will need to capture, analyze, and secure increasing amounts of data. Data growth is accelerating the demand for performant, data-intensive computing. As the demand for compute grows, memory capacity in the system typically needs to scale along with it. Large pools of DRAM help accelerate computing with low latency, but DRAM is limited in capacity, is volatile, and expensive. DRAM is becoming one of the most expensive components in modern server bills of materials. Alternatively, block storage is large, cheap, and persistent, but slow to bring data to the CPU.
Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem) bridges the gap with an innovative memory technology. This new memory delivers a unique combination of affordable large capacity and support for data persistence. With 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel Optane PMem 200 series workloads can optimize performance and cost by creating a 2-tier hierarchy in memory and storage. Supported for these processors on 2-socket and 4-socket platforms, PMem is helping to turn more data into actionable insights.
Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory 200 Series in the Data Center: Delivering Real Value Today
With Intel® Optane™ PMem 200 series, With Intel® Optane™ PMem 200 series, developers have direct, byte-addressable load/store access to large memory. They can drive innovation and capabilities using the same persistent memory programming model introduced with the first generation of PMem. Rapid adoption is easy. Customers are able to take full advantage of PMem capabilities with a growing global ecosystem that includes the following:
