Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory Overview
Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory has two main properties:
- It is persistent. Data is maintained even when the system power is off.
- This memory is byte-addressable. Like in regular DRAM, programs can access data structures in place at cache line granularity, avoiding the need to access data in large blocks as it currently happens in traditional I/O.
Persistent memory available modes:
Application Direct (App-Direct) Mode
Mixed Mode (combination of the two)
