Intel Optane DC and Java: Lessons learned in practice

img

Join this talk to learn more about our journey of providing Optane DC support.

<p>Intel claims that Optane DC, non-volatile memory technology, brings affordable large capacity (even TBs and more) and support for data persistence keeping comparable speed to classic RAM. Imagine RAM-like storage, but half the price and even persistent! That sounds amazing for in-memory computing platforms like Hazelcast. We decided to research the technology and then implement the support for it. How did it go? </p> <p>Join this talk to learn more about our journey of providing Optane DC support. We will answer to question like:</p> <ul> <li>What is Intel Optane DC?</li> <li>What are the pros and cons of it?</li> <li>How can you use Intel Optane DC from Java?</li> <li>How did the practical implementation go and what are the lessons learned?</li> </ul> <p>The talk includes live demos showing the actual code working with Intel Optane DC as well as discussion about other aspects like cost and performance.</p>
