Memcache is the most common way to speed up queries, by caching common results in memory. But memory is expensive and volatile. Can you have memcache without the “mem”?

IBM researchers used 3DXP, the technology behind Intel Optane, to provide memcache-speed results at a fraction of the cost.

Read the blog here, where the USENIX paper will be available as well.

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.
