Challenges

Customers experience an I/O bottleneck due to limited main memory today, which underutilizes the CPU and limits throughput that can be achieved. Adding additional memory is often cost prohibitive, especially for large deployments.

Solution

  • Baosight xInsight* application is limited by available memory, resulting in an I/O bottleneck. Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory (App Direct mode) delivers significantly larger, affordable memory capacities, as well as the flexibility to allocate data structures to specific memory tiers.
  • This allows customers to have larger datasets in memory, therefore delivering better performance with more transactions per second (see chart for performance improvement).1 2 3

Value

Better performance at similar cost - Baosight customers will benefit from improved performance (i.e., being able to run more transactions per second), at comparable cost, and while meeting SLA target of a response time less than 10ms.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
