Since the earliest days of computing, it’s been a widely accepted constraint:
From 16kb introduced in the 1980’s to Bill Gates’ oft-quoted misstep that “640kb ought to be enough for anybody”, solving for memory constraints has been a perpetual challenge—made even more critical with today’s data explosion and multi-Terabyte processing needs.
So what’s the end state vision?
According to Sri Doddapaneni, Senior Director of Intel’s Software Analyzers team, it’s moving from Limited to Unlimited Memory and having a hierarchy of flexible performance memory options.
It’s a paradigm shift that’s not only possible, it’s happening now with a hardware and software convergence that offers unprecedented system memory capacity and persistence.
Tune in to get the big picture from Sri, including:
- how Intel’s newly released hardware—Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory—delivers a unique combination of affordable large capacity and persistence (non-volatility)
- how new and affordable persistent memory enables developers to create flexile designs for managing workloads that meet optimal costs and balance performance tradeoffs
- what developers need to consider, including a review of options within a memory and storage hierarchy
