CTO Advisor 056: Promises of Intel Optane & 3D xpoint
Intel Architect James Myers joins the podcast to discuss Intel Optane built on 3D xpoint memory. The promise of 3D xpoint is to deliver permanent storage with performance closer to DRAM (system memory) while maintaining capacity closer to NAND (SSD) technology. Keith and Mark go over some use cases, the potential impact to enterprise applications, and ask challenging questions around market viability of the product.
