New of­fer­ing al­lows OEMs and cloud ser­vice providers to of­fer their cus­tomers early ac­cess to the rev­o­lu­tion­ary mem­ory tech­nol­ogy

Chip maker In­tel, has launched its beta pro­gramme for In­tel Op­tane DC per­sis­tent mem­ory.

Ac­cord­ing to the vendor, the pro­gramme al­lows orig­i­nal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers (OEMs) and cloud ser­vice providers (CSPs) to of­fer their cus­tomers early ac­cess to In­tel’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary mem­ory tech­nol­ogy and paves the way for gen­eral avail­abil­ity in the first half of 2019.

As part of the launch, global OEMs and CSPs have an­nounced beta ser­vices and sys­tems for early cus­tomer tri­als and de­ploy­ments.

“In­tel Op­tane DC per­sis­tent mem­ory is a ground-break­ing tech­nol­ogy that helps ad­dress real prob­lems our cus­tomers face. In the data-cen­tric era, busi­nesses need to move data faster, store more of it and process ev­ery­thing,” Lisa Spel­man, In­tel vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager, In­tel

Xeon Prod­ucts and Data Cen­tre Mar­ket­ing. “De­liv­ered with nextgen­er­a­tion In­tel Xeon Scal­able pro­ces­sors, this tech­nol­ogy will trans­form crit­i­cal data work­loads, from cloud, data­bases and high-per­for­mance com­put­ing to in-mem­ory an­a­lyt­ics and con­tent de­liv­ery net­works.”

As a part of the launch, In­tel an­nounced unique ca­pa­bil­i­ties de­liv­ered by In­tel Op­tane DC per­sis­tent mem­ory through two spe­cial op­er­at­ing modes – App Di­rect mode and Mem­ory mode. Ap­pli­ca­tions that have been specif­i­cally tuned can take ad­van­tage of App Di­rect mode to re­ceive the full value of the prod­uct’s native per­sis­tence and larger ca­pac­ity. In Mem­ory mode, ap­pli­ca­tions run­ning in a sup­ported op­er­at­ing sys­tem or vir­tual en­vi­ron­ment can use the prod­uct as volatile mem­ory, tak­ing ad­van­tage of the ad­di­tional sys­tem ca­pac­ity made pos­si­ble from mod­ule sizes up to 512 GB with­out need­ing to re­write soft­ware.

In­tel Op­tane DC per­sis­tent mem­ory rep­re­sents a new class of mem­ory ar­chi­tected to ex­tract fur­ther value from data.

In­tel Op­tane DC pro­vides sup­port for a breadth of ap­pli­ca­tions.
