Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem), in combination with Intel’s open-source distributed asynchronous object storage (DAOS) solution, sets a new world record, soaring to the top of the Virtual Institute for I/O IO-500 list. With just 30 servers of Intel Optane PMem, Intel’s DAOS solution defeated today’s best supercomputers and now ranks No. 1 for file system performance worldwide.
These results validate the solution’s delivery as having the most performance of any distributed storage today. They also demonstrate how Intel is truly changing the storage paradigm by providing customers the persistence of disk storage with the fine-grained and low-latency data access of memory in its Intel Optane PMem product.
“The recent IO-500 results for DAOS demonstrate the continuing maturity of the software’s functionality enabled by a well-managed code development and testing process. The collaborative development program will continue to deliver additional capabilities for DAOS in support of Argonne’s upcoming exascale system, Aurora,” said Gordon McPheeters, HPC systems administration specialist at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility.
