Frank Hady, Chief Optane Systems Architect describes in detail the Intel® Optane™ technology advantage and how it provides the memory and storage today's systems need to meet the ever-increasing demands of the data center.
The information on this page is intended to help system architects, engineers, and IT administrators better understand the limitations of traditional memory and storage options, how those limitations lead to performance and capacity gaps in your data center, and finally how Intel® Optane™ technology is helping to fill those gaps with a new industry-disrupting architecture.

More than 10 years after NAND SSDs were introduced, Intel® Optane™ SSDs significantly decrease latency for storage, offering a balance between bandwidth and latency allowing the processor to get to more of its data faster.
This paper discusses endurance issues and properties of NAND SSDs and traditional memory, and it shows how Intel® Optane™ media can overcome those issues when used in either Intel® Optane™ DC SSDs or Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory modules.
Intel Fellow Frank Hady explores the role that the queue depth [QD] of a workload plays in Intel® SSD performance. Intel® Optane™ SSDs, with its low latency, deliver high performance at low QDs for wide set of applications.
