Liqid and Intel® Optane™ Aim for DRAM at Gartner IT Infrastructure 2018

Liqid PCIe Fabric and Intel Software Bridge the Gap Between SSD and DRAM Supercharging Industry-leading Solid State Solution for Memory-centric Workloads

LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 5, 2018 — At Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations, and Cloud Strategies Conference 2018 (Inspur partner booth # 347), Liqid, leading provider of composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) and NVMe solutions, is demonstrating Liqid and Intel® Optane™ solid state drive solutions that combine the unparalleled high throughput, low latency, quality of service (QoS) and endurance of Intel Optane SSDs with Liqid’s industry-leading PCIe fabrics to scale 2-4X the capacity and bandwidth. Achieving DRAM memory-like speeds, the Liqid and Intel Optane solution suite is available in capacities of up to 1.5 TB for high-performance workloads associated with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, high performance computing (HPC), cloud and edge computing environments.

“The Intel Optane P4800X SSD is the first Intel product to combine the attributes of memory and storage, which is leading to a shift in how storage and memory are deployed in the data center,” said James Myers, Director of Storage Solutions Architecture, Intel. “By partnering with Liqid, we can offer Intel customers the ability to flexibly deploy Optane SSDs solutions into a Liqid Grid composable system, or within the Liqid Element SSD consolidating multiple Optane SSDs into a single SSD with significantly increased capacity and bandwidth, effectively doubling the data speeds that Optane can achieve for the most demanding applications for which lightning fast data manipulation is imperative.”

Intel Optane technology represents a unique combination of Intel® 3D XPoint™ memory media with Intel-built advanced system memory controller, interface hardware and software IP. Leveraged with Liqid PCIe fabric technology, together, these building blocks deliver a game-changing NVM technology that presents new system architecture and computing possibilities for a breadth of existing and new high-growth markets.

When coupled with Liqid’s PCIe fabric technology, Intel Optane can achieve performance enhancements and features that include:

  • Up to 7GBps throughput and 1.5 million IOPs
  • High Capacity Design up to 1.5 TB
  • Multiple Form Factors: HH-HL AIC or 2.5” U.2
  • HH-HL AIC Supports Gen3x8 Interface
  • Single or Dual Port U.2, Gen3x8 interface
  • Dual Port U.2 Supports Active/Active Mode
  • Plug-n-Play & UEFI Compatibility
  • Active Monitoring and Thermal Throttling
  • Supports Intel Memory Drive Technology (IMDT)

“We are proud to collaborate with Intel to outfit the data center with non-volatile memory solutions bridging the gap between SSDs and DRAM at a fraction of RAM’s power and cost,” said Marius Tudor, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Liqid. “PCIe fabric and composable infrastructure software from Liqid are enabling enterprise companies with the latest non-volatile memory and SSD technology as a fundamental building block in their quest to transform the data center landscape from historically static to dynamic and elastic bare-metal infrastructure.”
