Intel Optane P4800x SSD

David Tuhy, amongst other things, is the GM – Data Center Optane Storage Division, at Intel. In this podcast Brian and David discuss the modern data center and the impact of Optane SSDs on these architectures. Some of the new use cases include traditional architectures like Dell EMC PowerStore, which is using dual-ported Optane NVMe SSDs. For an emerging use case, David highlights VAST Data, which has a software-defined solution that leverages Optane SSDs in conjunction with low-cost QLC SSDs to deliver a blend of performance and aggressive economics.

The podcast also covers off on a wide range of topics including:

  • The impact of containers on SSDs
  • The SPDK, which is a set of “tools and libraries for writing high performance, scalable, user-mode storage application,”
  • Use case examples like how Twitter saw massive performance gains and reduction in data center footprint by 75% in Hadoop from Intel Optane SSDs
  • How Cisco altered HyperFlex to take full advantage of Optane SSDs to make their HCI solution more responsive

A great example of how Optane SSDs are helping HCI performance can be seen in a recent Azure Stack HCI review.
