In this deck from the 2019 Stanford HPC Conference, Usha Upadhyayula & Tom Krueger from Intel present: Introduction to Intel Optane Data Center Persistent Memory.
"For decades, developers had to balance data in memory for performance with data in storage for persistence. The emergence of data-intensive applications in various market segments is stretching the existing I/O models beyond limits.
Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory introduces a new, flexible tier within the memory/storage hierarchy, applicable to workloads across cloud, HPC, in-memory computing, and storage. This disruptive technology will deliver persistence at memory bus speeds, reducing the need for persistence in storage which means fewer I/O trips, and lower latency, for accelerated performance. In addition, the new media will offer a lower-cost alternative compared to DRAM.
In this session you will learn about different modes supported by Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory and open source libraries called PMDK (Persistent Memory Developer Kit) designed to solve challenges with persistent memory and simplify adoption of persistent memory programming. Usha Upadhyayula is a Developer Evangelist who will be providing this information in interactive format moderated by Tom Krueger, Global Sales Enablement Director both with Intel."
