At the core of stakes, we have: larger system memory, DRAM for memory-intensive applications, in-memory-intensive applications, in-memory databases and cloud and high-performance computing applications, advancements in computer architecture and more.
In effect, Intel and ScaleMP collaborate to bring software-defined memory (SDM) and storage-class memory (SCM) together.
For those who are unfamiliar, ScaleMP’s software-defined memory technology enables the use of DRAM placed in fabric-connected systems or the use of storage class memory (such as NVMe), as system memory - transparently (respectively, SDM-F and SDM-S). Therefore, more data can be analyzed in real time, leading to more insights and faster decision making.
Then, Software Defined Memory technology solutions will allow Intel® Optane™ SSDs to be immediately and transparently useable as main system memory.
This technology enables the creation of very high memory systems based on the Intel® SSD DC P3700 Series and future Intel® Optane™ SSDs.
