Big Memory software specialist MemVerge today announced GA of Memory Machine software that, used with Intel Optane persistent memory, “fundamentally changes in-memory computing infrastructure,” according to the company.
MemVerge said the offering offers the benefits of high-performance DRAM along with lower-cost and persistent memory, “the industry’s first software-defined pools of DRAM and persistent memory that are easy to deploy because they appear to applications as familiar DRAM. MemVerge is the first to extend the performance limits of persistent memory to offer DRAM-like speed; and provide enterprise-class memory data services that transform the decades-old and fragile DRAM memory tier into a new highly available memory tier.”
MemVerge said that by transforming DRAM and persistent memory hardware into virtualized, software-defined memory pools, “the software provides access to persistent memory without changes to applications, super-charges persistent memory with DRAM-like performance, and introduces enterprise-class memory data services that make server memory highly available.”
“Servers deployed with Intel Optane persistent memory hardware and Memory Machine software incorporate a Big Memory architecture without compromise,” said Charles Fan, MemVerge co-founder and CEO. “Memory Machine harnesses the best of DRAM and persistent memory to create a new software-defined Big Memory tier that is simultaneously lower cost, high-performance and highly available.”
IDC defines Big Memory as a market segment consisting of memory hardware and Big Memory software that creates a new persistent memory tier.
“By 2024 a quarter of all data will be real-time data and two-thirds of Global 2000 corporations will have deployed at least 1 real-time app.” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, infrastructure systems, platforms and technologies at IDC. “This is driving the need for the price, performance and enterprise-class data services in Big Memory Computing.”
“Intel developed Optane persistent memory to help fill the gap in the memory-storage subsystem,” said Alper Ilkbahar, Intel’s VP/GM, Memory & Storage Product Group. “It is exciting to see this offering from MemVerge that will help enable enterprises to take advantage of the speed of traditional memory with the capacity that persistent memory delivers, without requiring application code modifications.”
