Several converging trends, such as IT consumerization, increased number of users, more devices, and a lot more data, have pushed the storage environment to a new level. These new technologies aren't only driving the cloud—they're pushing forward all of the technologies that support cloud computing. At the epicenter of the cloud sits the data center and data storage.
Intel strives to outdo current technology by supporting end-to-end solutions and designing system architecture that meets impending needs while exceeding current ones. See how innovative technologies such as Intel® Solid State Drives are leading to a future of endless possibilities.
How would your life change if you could do things hundreds of times faster? If the wait went away? What if your storage device was that much faster? You could unleash the power of your processor instead of it working at a fraction of its power. Eliminating that bottleneck requires better storage memory that is fast, inexpensive, and non-volatile. Intel® Optane™ technology has the potential to revolutionize big data, high performance computing (HPC), virtualization, storage, cloud, gaming, and many other applications.
Storage developers face challenges when integrating solid-state drives, faster network infrastructure, and the latest processor technology. Performance and cost optimization requires careful consideration and an understanding of the underlying hardware and software.
