Selectel Blog: Guest Post: Intel Optane and In-Memory Databases

Konstantin worked with in-memory databases (memacached, Redis, Apache ignite, etc.) on a server built with an Intel Optane SSD. The specific device tested was the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X and was connected using IMDT (Intel Memory Drive Technology), which made the drive available to the OS and applications as RAM.

Stanford University and Facebook research: Reducing DRAM Footprint with NVM [non-volatile memory] in Facebook

In this work, we design a key-value store, MyNVM, which leverages an NVM block device to reduce DRAM usage, and to reduce the total cost of ownership, while providing comparable latency and queries-per-second (QPS) as MyRocks on a server with a much larger amount of DRAM.

Redis Labs Blog: Redis Enterprise Flash on Intel Optane

Our partners at Intel have recently announced the availability of Optane, an NVMe-based SSD device built on top of the new persistent memory technology from Intel and Micron, 3D XPoint (3DXP). The new Intel Optane SSD is a major improvement over the P3700 (especially for items larger than 1000B), delivering more than nine times the throughput using our RF product.

ScyllaDB Blog: Intel Optane Review

Intel® Optane™ drives help servers to maximize their potential by delivering a drive that is extremely responsive under any load, has low latency, and helps the CPU’s on the server to be better utilized. Based on the testing done in this blog post, we can see that Optane workload latency numbers are almost as low as in-memory for reads while lowering the RAM costs and keeping it all consistent.
