In yet another excellent and fruitful partnership, Howard Chu of Symas tested LMDB and RocksDB on Optane in the Packet+Intel lab. The tests really pushed the drives to their limits due to the characteristics of the database, which led to some really interesting results.

Howard wrote two fascinating articles. The first on Optane in general is here, while the follow-up on IMDT is here.

Do you manage, develop or use a data store, caching software, message bus or any software that could benefit from Optane’s performance? Contact us to request access to the AccelerateWithOptane lab.
