NetApp MAX Data Now Supports Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory

NetApp has announced that NetApp Memory Accelerated Data (MAX Data) 1.3 is supporting the Intel Optane DC persistent memory.

According to NetApp, companies are challenged with using enormous volumes of data to achieve business impact, and new applications such as AI, machine learning, deep learning, real-time analytics, and IoT which are memory-hungry and fueled by massive datasets, are compounding the challenge.

MAX Data aims to give customers the tools to unlock the value of vast datasets and extend a data fabric strategy all the way into their servers with applications and data that are critical to their business.

“With NetApp MAX Data now supporting Intel Optane DC persistent memory, organizations can accelerate data pipelines across an entire enterprise to power applications such as Oracle and MongoDB with the simplicity, choice, and scale necessary for real business impact,” said Joel Reich, executive vice president, Storage Systems and Software, NetApp. “With the volume of data generated and managed across on-premises data centers, IoT devices, and sensors, as well as in hybrid cloud environments, having a data fabric strategy that spans edge, core, and cloud is essential to business success.”

According to NetApp, MAX Data is the industry’s first enterprise storage solution using Intel Optane DC persistent memory in servers to store persistent data delivering affordable, memory-like low latency and flash-like capacity, without any rewrites required to application code, allowing companies to take full advantage of the benefits of real-time apps.
