Intel is disrupting the memory and storage market with key technologies that bridge cost and performance gaps in the memory and storage hierarchy. Memory and storage are vital to the computing experience, and with the introduction of Intel Optane DC persistent memory, combined with additions to the Intel Optane SSD and Intel[R] QLC 3D NAND SSD families, Intel is enabling businesses to remove the bottlenecks that restrict the flow and readiness of data for processing.
As an example, Facebook and Intel are collaborating closely on Intel(r) Optane(tm) technology, and Facebook has been working to re-architect its storage hierarchy to take advantage of this type of technology.
The Hadoop solution will include a Linux operating system, workload management software, the Cray Advanced Cluster Engine (ACE) management software and the Intel Distribution, which includes greater security, improved real-time handling of data, and improved performance throughout the storage hierarchy. The entire solution is integrated, optimised, validated and supported by Cray.
Our virtualization technologies enable you to consolidate networked storage at every level of the storage hierarchy,regardless of specific requirements for NAS, Fibre Channel SAN, or IP SAN implementations.
Though no one knew it at the time, two key events in the storage industry had occurred; 1) the storage hierarchy was created with online and offline storage and 2) the first storage management applications were born, namely backup and recovery.
