Intel said that it supports the deployment of up to 3TB of non-volatile storage, and can quickly handle a huge amount of data. Obviously, this is ideal for analytics applications that are pretty hungry for data, so that the platform does not need to bypass the "remote" storage on the PCIe bus.
It is worth mentioning that the Optane DC PM module also comes with a hardware acceleration-based encryption scheme to ensure the security of existing data. Taking the Aerospike NoSQL database as an example, the new solution can be restarted in a few seconds, compared to the way traditional buses connect storage and DRAM.
In addition, Redis servers running on Optane DIMMs can host more host instances and services. Intel is expected to sample specific customers later this year and will be widely used since 2019.
