In this video from the Swiss HPC Conference, Dr. Jean-Laurent Philippe from Intel presents: HPC Platform and Memory Technologies.
Building on more than 20 years of Intel Xeon platform leadership, Intel is delivering the first data-centric portfolio launch in its history – expanding its leadership portfolio to move, store and process data with unique innovations to fuel high-growth workloads. Several trends are driving the exponential growth of data generation and consumption, including the democratization of artificial intelligence, emerging 5G networks and increased scale of cloud computing. Combined with the broad proliferation of data-centric workloads across a distributed computing landscape, these trends are driving the architecture of modernized data centers, networks that can quickly flex and scale, and the future of entire industries. Businesses must invest in data-centric infrastructure to unleash insights from data to keep up in this competitive environment.
Intel continues to deliver performance leadership with the introduction of the 56-core, 12 memory channel Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 This processor is designed to deliver leadership socket-level performance and unprecedented DDR memory bandwidth in a wide variety of HPC workloads, AI applications, and high-density infrastructure.
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 QLC 3D NAND SSD families, Intel is enabling businesses to remove the bottlenecks that restrict the flow and readiness of data for processing.
The latest memory and storage solutions available today from Intel include:
- Intel Optane DC persistent memory brings breakthrough storage-class memory capacity to the Intel Xeon Scalable platform.
- Intel Optane SSD DC D4800X (Dual Port) combines the performance of Intel Optane DC SSDs with the data resilience required by mission-critical high-availability enterprise IT applications. Dual port capability adds redundancy to the data path to deliver continued data access in the event of failures or service operations and upgrades.
- Intel SSD D5-P4326 (Intel QLC 3D NAND) is an addition to Intel’s first-to-market PCIe QLC NAND SSDs for the data center. Using 64-Layer QLC technology (4 bits/cell), the product family delivers large affordable capacities to read-intensive cloud workloads. Additional cost optimizations on the Intel SSD D5-P4326 enable it to help accelerate HDD displacement in warm storage.
