What you'll learn

  • Understand the advantages of Intel Optane data center persistent memory


It’s not getting any easier for organizations to compete on data. The increasing amount of data generated from edge devices, the complexity of various streaming datasets, and the challenge of real-time analytics on multidimensional data all keep data professionals and IT managers awake at night. However, new technologies are beginning to ease the pain, particularly those that are blurring the lines between storage and memory.

Persistent memory—a breakthrough technology—accelerates analytics, database, and storage workloads across a variety of use cases, bringing new levels of speed and efficiency to the data center and to in-memory computing. Arakere Ramesh and Bharath Yadla offer an overview of the newly announced Intel Optane data center persistent memory and share the exciting potential of this technology in analytics solutions.

This session is sponsored by Intel.
