New demands for data storage are emerging with the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and big data applications in information technology. Explosive growth, real-time read/write, and random access to ultra-large datasets have become commonplace challenges in the data storage arena. Developing a data storage system with high performance, stability, security, and scalability is the key factor driving business growth and innovation.
To this end, Baidu collaborated with Intel to launch the next-gen user-mode single-node storage engine built on Intel® Optane™ persistent memory featuring large capacity and low latency. This engine provides efficient, stable, low-latency, low-cost, and scalable storage services to Baidu’s offline and some online businesses, thereby fully tapping the value in data.
Intel engineers worked closely with the Baidu team in developing the new single-node engine, matching to the latest hardware products based on the performance features of the single-node engine, and tapping the full potential of hardware through iterative optimization.
