This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

INTEL DC Persistent Memory

Intel® Optane persistent memory offers larger and more affordable capacity than DRAM but with nearly the same latency, bridging the gap between DRAM and storage in data-intensive workloads.

Intel Optane persistent memory is compatible with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon® Scalable Processors. The modules are DDR4 socket compatible and can coexist with DDR4 DIMMs. In Memory mode, the modules increase capacity at a lower cost than DRAM, enabling applications such as in-memory databases with large memory footprints to be consolidated to fewer nodes. In App Direct mode, the modules retain data through power cycles and provide greater bandwidth and endurance than SSDs, providing fault tolerance, faster restart and replication times, and increased VM density.

Intel Optane persistent memory also has built-in hardware encryption to keep data secure. 

  • Compatible with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon® Scalable Processors 
  • DDR4 socket compatible module form factor 
    • Can coexist on the same bus/channels as DDR4 
  • Two operating modes: Memory (volatile) and App Direct (non-volatile) 
  • Memory Mode: enables larger and more affordable memory capacity 
    • Capacities: 128GiB, 256GiB, and 512GiB 
  • App Direct Mode: enables faster restart/replication times and increased VM density 
  • Data security: integrated 256-bit AES hardware encryption
