Applications are increasingly being built with insatiable appetites for DRAM, which can be problematic if there’s limited availability of system memory (in other words, slow performance).

Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory addresses this issue. It’s a new type of non-volatile memory and storage tier architected specifically for the data center. Faster than solid-state drives (SSDs) or hard drives, Intel Optane persistent memory increases the capacity of available system memory, and delivers rapid restart times and reduced wait times.

Join Kevin O’Leary, lead technical consulting engineer at Intel for an in-depth analysis of memory, including:

  • An overview of the new technology
  • A step-by-step guide to determine if your application is a good candidate for using Intel Optane DC persistent memory
  • Optimization guidelines and best practices for using Intel Optane persistent memory

  • Intel® VTune™ Profiler analysis and tuning tools help you determine if your application can benefit from persistent memory and if it’s optimized.
