MemVerge Memory Machine Released

MemVerge Memory Machine

Today, MemVerge announced the general availability of their “Memory Machine” software. Like most MemVerge software, their “Memory Machine” software is intended to work with Intel Optane persistent memory to provide a software-defined memory pool. MemVerge was founded in August 2017, shortly after Intel released its Optane SSDs. MemVerge’s primary product used to be Memory-Converged Infrastructure (MCI) software, but it seems to have been replaced by Memory Machine, which has most of the same features. MemVerge also provides distributed memory objects (DMO) technology to accelerate data-intensive workloads such as AI, machine learning (ML), and analytics.

MemVerge is offering two versions of their “Memory Machine” software. Memory Machine Standard Edition and Memory Machine Advanced Edition.

The Memory Machine Standard Edition provides a memory virtualization layer that allows applications to treat Intel Optane PMEM (Persistent Memory) DIMMS (Dual In-line Memory ModuleS, i.e. the sticks, not SSDS) as DRAM. This means companies that purchase MemVerge’s software can immediately and transparently begin running existing applications on servers using Intel Optane PMEM. As Intel Optane PMem both offers much higher memory density and lower cost per gigabyte than traditional DRAM, this represents a tremendous savings opportunity.

The Memory Machine Advanced Edition builds on the standard edition by adding enterprise-targeted features. Features like Memverge’s ZeroIO memory snapshot technology.  According to the company, their ZeroIO software eliminates IO to storage by keeping everything in PMem. MemVerge says this allows customers to snapshot and recover hundreds of gigabytes of data from persistent memory in a few seconds, instead of taking minutes to hours from storage.
