First public cloud provider to offer virtual machines using Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory
In July, Google Cloud announced a new partnership with Intel and SAP to offer GCP virtual machines supporting Intel’s Optane DC Persistent Memory. This was a significant step forward for customers that handle and store large amounts of data and run in-memory databases such as SAP HANA.
We recently announced the availability of virtual machines with 7 TB of total memory utilizing Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory.
Enterprise customers need increased scaling, reduced latency, and improved efficiency for their in-memory databases. Early customers have seen as much as a 12x improvement in SAP HANA start-up times using Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory. And with lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to DRAM-based VMs, GCP customers using this technology no longer have to balance operational efficiency against cost.
Google Cloud is the first public cloud provider to offer virtual machines using Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory, in addition to even larger Optane-based VM offerings to follow in 2019.Try GCP Now
