Memory is the new Storage. Next generation storage architectures will include a persistent memory tier based on NVDIMMs such as Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory technology, which will ship with the Intel® Xeon® processor Scalable family refresh codenamed Cascade Lake.
In this webinar, we demonstrate how to provision Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory modules in Linux using the open source ipmctl and ndctl utilities. Aimed at System Administrators or Application Developers with minimal or no experience working with NVDIMMs, we first introduce some new terms and concepts then walk through provisioning several typical configurations.
What You Will Learn:
• Generic concepts and terminology for NVDIMM technologies
• Available command line utilities to provision, manage, and monitor NVDIMMs and Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory
• The different storage modes
• How to provision Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory Modules within Linux for production or development purposes
