Advanced Caching with Intel Optane

Intel Optane SSD's are solid, stable and high-performance data storage devices that have revolutionised memory and storage, delivering unparalleled performance and new computing possibilities.

Excelling in even the most demanding data storage environments, the biggest benefit of Intel Optane is the use of 3D XPoint technology over traditional NAND for read and write operations, where it addresses individual cells rather than whole blocks.

The robust, reliable and resilient nature of Intel Optane drives make them a perfect option as a cache device to completement the advanced caching facilities of the Broadberry CyberStore ZFS range.

  • First Read Cache level in RAM (ARC - Adaptive Replacement Cache).
  • Second Read Cache level on fast memory device (eg. SSD) (L2ARC Level 2 Adaptive Replacement Cache)
  • Write Log - ZFS Intent Log (ZIL) located on separated fast memory device (SLOG)
High and Stable Write IOPS

Its well known that cache functionality requires ultra-fast random IOPS devices. Where as NAND SSD's' intially work fast but slow down over time, Intel Optane SSD's provide blazing performance at every IOPS level, and crucially never slow down.

Low and Stable Latency

Latency is extremely important when writing large amounts of small files, especially in database, virtualisation and online transaction processing. Where as latency of NAND SSDs increases over time, latency of Intel® Optane SSDs are significantly lower, and stay low.

High Quality of service (QoS)

Due to significant simplification and thus shortening of write operation, the Intel® Optane disk offers significantly lower and stable latency - resulting in improving the QoS factor since more write operations are handled in a lower and narrower latency time period.

Cost-effective RAM cache replacement

As a read cache, Intel® Optane drives significantly lower server costs since when used as a replacement of ECC RAM. In certain configurations, large amounts of ECC RAM (used for ARC) can be replaced with small amounts of ECC RAM together with Intel® Optane (used for L2ARC) giving huge cost savings while only marginally decreasing speed.

Intel Optane Features:

Low and Stable Latency

Intel Optane SSDs have a significantly lower latency than their NAND counterparts. Where the latency of NAND SSDS increases over time, the latency of Intel Optane SSDs remains stable. Latency is a vital factor when writing large amounts of small files, for example in database, virtualisation or online transaction processing.

Best in Class

Intel Optane SSDs can provide huge boosts to your data storage solution, providing the very best-in-class read and write speeds, as well as data storage protection.

Cost-Effective Option

Intel Optane SSDs can provide huge boosts to your data storage solution, providing the very best-in-class read and write speeds, as well as data storage protection.

Capacity Storage Tier Protection

By using Intel Optane drives as a write log, you protect the drives serving as main data storage from extensive write operations. With an all-flash storage setup based on regular NAND SSDs utilised as a capacity storage tier, using Intel Optane as a write log protects the NAND memory and extends its lifetime.

High Quality of Service (QoS)

Intel Optane SSDs offer substantially lowered latency which remains stable long term. This results in an improved QoS factor, as more write operations are handled in time.

Fully Compatible

Intel Optane SSDS are built for compatibility with all Open-E JovianDSS storage architecture.

Extended Lifetime

Intel Optane SSDs are significantly more durable than regular NAND SSDs. Where NAND SSDs falter is the number of writes, and especially so when it comes to write cache functionality. Intel Optane surpasses NAND durability by several orders of magnitude, delivering endurance of up to 60 DWPD (device write per day) over 5 years.

High and Stable Write IOPS

A perfect enhancement for ZFS-based Broadberry data storage systems. Intel Optane delivers ultra-fast random IOPS and cache functionality. Where NAND SSDs suffer a loss of speed over time, Intel Optane SSDs remains stable.
