Solution brief

Revolutionize: Move storage into memory

Achieving huge performance gains by transforming storage into memory

Bridging the gap between DRAM and nonvolatile storage

In today's memory storage ecosystem, there are traditionally two common types of memory: nonvolatile (NVRAM) and DRAM. Even the highest-performing NVRAM is never close to the performance of conventional DRAM. With the introduction of HPE servers using second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, HPE now offers HPE Persistent Memory in 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities featuring Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory, which sits in system DIMM slots to provide a data storage layer between DRAM and disk.
HPE Persistent Memory offers three different operating modes: Memory, App Direct, and Mixed. These modes ensure that HPE Persistent Memory technology remains flexible enough to accommodate nearly any memory-intensive workload. This solution focuses on newly developed native persist technology found in certain commercial, community, and open source NoSQL databases.

App Direct Mode for low-latency data transfer operations

HPE Persistent Memory servers are the ideal location for real-time persistent NoSQL databases using the integrated App Direct Mode, which is also called Persistent Memory-Aware, or "PMEM-aware ." App Direct integration provides accelerated, low-latency data transfers directly between the database and the HPE Persistent Memory hardware.
