Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Available Now on IBM Cloud
After conducting a successful early access testbed program with Intel® and Lenovo®, IBM is excited to announce that the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X is available today on selected IBM cloud bare metal configurations. Intel® Optane™ technology is a premium, non-volatile memory media with an industry-leading combination of high throughput, low latency, high QoS and ultra-high endurance. This innovative SSD solution is optimized to break through today’s data access bottlenecks and enable more work to get done per server.
Why Intel Optane technology?
Every day, the amount of data created around the world is exploding. Enterprises use business-relevant data to make critical decisions, gain new insights, and drive their competitive differentiation. But, today’s current storage technologies either don’t deliver the performance needed or are too expensive to scale to the size required by today’s large datasets. In an environment of fast growing data and ever demanding needs, enterprises are looking for ever faster storage solutions that behave more like system memory.
The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X is the first product to combine the attributes of memory and storage, thereby delivering an innovative solution that accelerates applications through faster caching and faster storage performance to increase scale per server and reduce transaction costs for latency sensitive workloads. The DC P4800X offers amazing response times for virtually any workload — making it ideal for critical applications with demanding latency requirements. In addition, the DC P4800X enables enterprises to deploy bigger and more affordable datasets to gain new insights from large memory pools.
Available in August on the IBM Cloud, enterprises of all sizes can realize the high-performance gains of the DC P4800X for a minimum investment cost. This makes the DC P4800X the perfect storage option for applications including: blockchain, quantum compute simulations, cloud-assisted autonomous navigation workloads, high frequency trading, real-time analytics/databases, cloud gaming, and more.
We’re excited to announce that Kubernetes 1.7 is available for IBM Bluemix Container Service. You can now update your Kubernetes master and worker nodes to the latest supported version of Kubernetes by using either the Bluemix dashboard or the CLI. To get the most of the 1.7 features, you must enable those features after you update. Before […]
On a recent project we were looking at rewriting a system which provides data-ingestion services into a DB2 instance. As we move more workloads into IBM’s cloud offerings we always stop, think, review to implement the most suitable technical approach to create the work product.
IBM Design San Francisco has announced that they won the prestigious Red Dot Communications Design Award for IBM Data Science Experience. This achievement points to the relentless efforts, diligence, and innovation that IBM Design has demonstrated over the past years and continues to demonstrate in everything they do. The Red Dot Award is one of the highest forms of recognition in the design world. This is a phenomenal achievement on multiple accounts. (1) Red dot jury is pretty tough and to beat out thousands of entries speaks to the quality of design innovation (2) It sheds light on the positive impacts of design led products (3) Speaks volumes to the investment in design thinking and IBM Design.
