Over at Datacenter Knowledge, Pat Buddenbaum from Intel writes that the newly announced Xeon E7 V2 processors are tailor-made for in-memory analytics.
The new Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 product family is designed to make data more valuable for your business through in-memory computing – one of the more recent advances in data management and analytic solutions, which stores the entire data set in main memory rather than traditional hard disk storage. In-memory database and analytics solutions enable significant performance gains in analyzing complex and diverse datasets. We’re talking about analysis in seconds or minutes rather than hours or days. This is how you get to real-time insight.
