Features and Performance

Affordable Larger Capacity

PMem enables you to affordably increase your memory capacity per socket, extract value from larger data sets and increase the utility of the server. PMem can help improve TCO via reduced SW licensing costs, power efficiencies and more.

Maximizing Your Investments

PMem is propelling infrastructure consolidation. Larger memory helps consolidate workloads, concentrating them on fewer nodes, saving on deployments and helping maximize previously underutilized processors due to memory constraints.

Driving Innovation

Optane™ PMem is an advanced memory technology with groundbreaking performance to break-through system bottlenecks that severely constrain workloads.

Target Workloads

In-Memory Database and Data Services

Today's in-memory databases are constrained to traditional computing architectures, where memory is small, expensive, and volatile. The new Intel® Optane™ persistent memory represents a new memory tier that is large, persistent, and affordable, significantly boosting capacity and performance for rapid data processing. Because data persists in memory through power cycles, restart times are reduced, resulting in rapid service recovery and up-times, where previously minutes, now only seconds.


Virtual machine (VM) density and virtualization performance has historically been constrained by system memory that is small, expensive, and volatile. New Intel® Optane™ persistent memory provides virtualization services with more capacity, offering a large, affordable, and persistent memory tier for delivering increased VM density at affordable cost.

Fast Storage

Ultra-fast storage solutions have been constrained by small and expensive system memory capacities that transition data to varying degrees of fast-to-slow performing media, providing a mix of performance, capacity, and cost. Intel® Optane™ persistent memory and Intel® Optane™ SSDs deliver a new paradigm for ultra-fast data storage and processing by introducing entirely new storage solutions at levels of performance historically reserved for high-end, expensive, memory-only solutions.

Product and Performance Information

This feature may not be available on all computing systems. Please check with the system vendor to determine if your system delivers this feature, or reference the system specifications (motherboard, processor, chipset, power supply, HDD, graphics controller, memory, BIOS, drivers, virtual machine monitor-VMM, platform software, and/or operating system) for feature compatibility. Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration.
