Evaluating the latest Optane memory: A glorious swansong?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

In this paper we evaluate the 3rd generation of Intel's Optane non-volatile memory technology, assess the performance it can provide, and investigate the modes of use that can be beneficial in high performance computing, both for application performance and system architecture. We demonstrate sustained performance and functionality improvements from the latest hardware, along with I/O and memory performance and functionality that is not available from other memory or storage hardware. We show that leveraging Optane can provide significant reductions in the required volatile memory for applications, with minimal performance impacts, provided the appropriate memory hierarchy designs and considerations are taken into account.
