Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory

  • More system memory capacity with optimized TCO 
  • Keeps data integrity with persistency, even when power is lost
  • Better system performance and in-memory analytics capabilities
  • Optimizes workloads by moving and maintaining larger amounts of data closer to the CPU


Benefits of Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory


Significantly lower latency than fetching data from system storage



High capacities

128, 256, 512GB modules
DDR4 PIN compatible


Affordable cost



Memory Mode 

  • Bring large memory capacity and does not require application changes
  • Requires compatible Operating System
  • DRAM functions as cache and is not counted in total available memory
  • Intel Optane DC persistent memory functions as volatile memory pool

APP Direct Mode

  • Compatible OS is explicitly aware of two types of load store memory
  • Compatible applications can direct data to volatile or persistent memory
  • The power of persistent memory adds business resilience to systems with faster restart times because data is retained even during power cycles

  • How to enable Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory into daily operation 

    Memory Mode

    • Larger Memory size 
    • Infrastructures as a service (IaaS) applications and cloud service 
    • More VMs and Containers in per server
    • More Memory allocation to VM


    APP Direct Mode

    • In-memory database
    • Storage Cache


    Mixed Mode

    Combination of Memory Mode and App Direct Mode, where a portion of the capacity of the DCPMMs is used for the Memory Mode operations, and the remaining capacity of the DCPMMs is used for the App Direct Mode operations
