Intel Optane persistent memory delivers a new category that sits between memory and storage and provides the best of both worlds through the convergence of memory and storage product traits.

Available in capacities of 128GB, 256 GB and 512 GB, Intel Optane persistent memory is a significantly larger alternative to DRAM (which is currently capped at 128 GB). With Intel Optane persistent memory you have access to cost-efficient, large capacity memory that delivers flexibility and serves as a high-performance storage tier.

The option of application managed memory also exists, which is key to optimising system performance. Consistent, low latency together with high bandwidth, QoS and endurance of this special Intel technology leads to –

  • Increased capacity
  • Increased VMs for virtualised and cloud users
  • Significantly higher and cost-efficient capacity for in-memory databases
  • Ultra-fast storage
  • Bigger memory pools

Enjoy increased system performance with more memory, with 3x the performance of NVMe SSDs and a significantly higher endurance than NAND SSDs for write-intensive workloads.


Advanced Memory with Optane™ PMem

Intel Optane persistent memory revolutionises traditional architectures, providing a cost-efficient, large and persistent memory tier. Intel Optane persistent memory speeds up IT transformation to meet the requirements of the data era, delivering ceiling shattering performance levels in memory intensive workloads, virtual machine density and blazing-fast storage capacity.


Affordable, Increased Capacity

Intel Optane persistent memory allows you to cost-efficiently boost your memory capacity per socket, obtain value from bigger data sets and boost the utility of the server. PMem is able to enhance TCO through lowered SW licensing costs, power-efficiency and more.

Maximise Your Investments

Intel Optane persistent memory propels infrastructure consolidation. More memory helps to consolidate workloads, focusing them on less nodes, saving on deployments and helping maximise processors that were previously underutilised because of the constraints on memory.

Driving Innovation

An advanced memory technology, Optane PMem delivers blazing fast performance to break through system bottlenecks that significantly inhibit workloads.


Memory Mode is ideal for large memory capacity and doesn’t need application changes, making Intel Optane persistent memory simple to adopt. When in Memory Mode, Optane PMem extends the amount of available volatile memory visible to the OS. DRAM is utilised as Cache for the Intel Optane PMem. The CPU memory controller uses the DRAM as cache while the Intel Optane persistent memory is used as addressable main memory.

Intel Optane persistent memory in Memory Mode can be an advantage for virtualisation as there is a bigger memory capacity which delivers increased VMs and higher memory per VM at a reduced cost (in comparison to DRAM). I/O bound workloads can also benefit from utilising Memory Mode as Intel Optane persistent memory. This is because it delivers larger memory capacity which supports larger databases and is more cost-efficient than DRAM. When used in Memory Mode, the data in the Intel Optane persistent memory is volatile. It is handled with an encryption key that is discarded when the system is powered down, making the data inaccessible.

In App Direct Mode, software and applications are able to communicate directly to the Intel Optane persistent memory, lessening complexity in the stack. The option exists to have App Direct Mode utilise legacy storage APIs. This enables it to behave as an SSD and can boot an operating system. The OS views Intel Optane persistent memory and DRAM as two distinct memory pools. Like storage it is persistent and like memory it is byte addressable. It is cache coherent, extending persistent memory usage outside of the local node. Consistently low latency, larger data sets are supported.

The benefits delivered by persistent memory add business resilience to systems with quicker restart times as data is retained even during power cycles. Intel Optane persistent memory features larger capacity, high endurance and enhanced bandwidth in comparison to NAND SSDs.

Dual Mode is a subset of App Direct, you can provision it so that part of the Intel Optane persistent memory is in Memory Mode and the rest is in App Direct Node. In Dual Mode, applications are able to utilise high performance storage without the latency of moving data to and from the I/O bus.


Intel Optane persistent memory features 256-AES hardware encryption, ensuring your data remains protected. Whilst in Memory Mode, the Intel Optane persistent memory encryption key is removed when powered down and regenerated at boot, meaning data is no longer accessible. In App Direct Mode data is encrypted using a key on the module. Intel Optane persistent memory is locked at power loss and a passphrase is required to unlock and access the data.

The encryption key is stored within a security metadata region on the module. It can only be accessed by the Intel Optane persistent memory controller. In the event of the module being repurposed or no longer used, a cryptographic erase and DIMM over write are used to ensure data can’t be accessed.


Address and Overcome Key Challenges

Persistent Memory deals with a multitude of importing computing challengers that modern centres face. These include high DRAM costs for large-memory modes, data protection during maintenance or in the event of an outage, emerging workloads that take advantage of hierarchical memory architectures and a lot more.

With the emergence of larger persistent memory capacity capabilities, bigger datasets can exist closer to the CPU for quicker processing which leads to greater insights. The enhanced capacities of Intel persistent memory help towards generating a more cost-efficient solution.

Intel Optane persistent memory offers customers large capacity memory to choose from, enabling them to support larger datasets for analysis.

A multitude of mission critical databases and enterprise apps store huge amounts of data in working memory. In the case of a server going down, downtime can be significant as it can take multiple hours to reload the memory array.

As Intel Optane persistent memory retains data during power cycles, applications can be returned to service significantly faster. This enables cloud, enterprises and communication service provides avoid expensive redundancy costs. For example, SAP HANA can reach a 13x faster restart time and 39% cost savings.


Intel Optane Persistent Memory - Frequently Asked Questions

There are a number of differences between Intel Optane Persistent Memory (PMem) and DRAM. The main difference is that even with no power applied to the module, PMem is still able to store data. However with DRAM, data is lost every time power is lost, as it is not persistent.

PMem can go up to significantly higher capacities than traditional DRAM, whilst DRAM modules usually max out at 64GB, PMem modules can reach up to a massive 512GB capacity. PMem also comes with built-in hardware encryption, helping to ensure data at rest is secure.

Intel Optane Persistent Memory is more cost-efficient than DRAM and its ability to increase capacity is far beyond what DRAM is capable of.

There is a big difference between Intel Optane Persistent Memory and Intel Optane SSDs. Intel Optane PMem operates on the DRAM bus and is packaged in DIMMs. It can be utilised as volatile or persistent memory.

Alternatively, Intel Optane SSDs are solely used for fast storage residing in standard NAND package models and occupies the PCIe bus utilising the NVMe protocol.

There are a multitude of benefits and advantages to Intel Optane Persistent Memory:

  • Native Persistence – You can store data even when powered off.
  • Cost-Efficient, Larger Capacities – With the introduction of larger persistent memory capacities, larger datasets are able to exist closer to the CPU for quicker processing, enabling much better insights.
  • Operational Modes – Intel Optane Persistent Memory features two operating modes, Memory Node and App Direct Node. Memory Mode is ideal for large memory capacity and doesn’t need application changes as the memory is treated as volatile. App Direct Mode delivers large memory capacity and enables applications to communicate with PMem as a 2nd tier memory.
  • Hardware Encryption – PMem features industry standard AES-256 hardware encryption, securing your data. In the event you repurpose or discard the module, a secure cryptographic erase and DIMM overwrite make sure your data isn’t accessed.
