SUSE is collaborating with Intel to support 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory. This brings persistent, large-scale memory closer to the processor. With solutions running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, businesses will be better able to address the challenges of massive data increases with greater speed and agility while incurring lower infrastructure and management costs.
Optimized for Digital Transformation
Fueled by 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and platform complements, customers can move, store, and process data with confidence across the most demanding workloads: from multi-Cloud to intelligent Edge and back. These new Intel Xeon processors enable customers to optimize workloads across the spectrum of cloud, edge and core.
What are the challenges in Data-Centric world?
Cloud service providers need to drive higher revenue, protect data privacy, and provide the best experience while reducing downtime and driving operational efficiency.
Communication service providers are preparing for 5G, are engaged in network transformation and striving to meet demands at the network edge.
Enterprises are tackling siloed applications & data packets, improving on slow deployments of new services, trying to stay ahead of growing security exploits, constantly removing network bottlenecks, and managing the data influx that is swamping storage.
How do you deliver customer value in a Data-Centric world?
SUSE and Intel collaborated to deliver customer value in this data-centric era with a focus on delivering end-to-end solutions. Imagine the end-to-end solution as a workflow, where the workloads can be supported for the overall workflow that spans the edge, core and cloud. Across the workflow, the 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors powered with SUSE Linux Enterprise provide a platform to enable workloads optimized for applications such as high-performance computing, analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
SUSE and Intel have eyes set on future
Earlier this year SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications became the FIRST enterprise Linux optimized for Intel Optane DC persistent memory with SAP HANA® workloads. Users can now optimize their workloads by moving and maintaining larger amounts of data closer to the processor and minimizing the higher latency of fetching data from system storage during maintenance. As an example, SAP HANA optimized for Intel Optane DC persistent memory has demonstrated startup time improvement by a factor of 12.5.
The persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage, with in-memory database solutions being just one application of persistent memory technology.
With SUSE Linux Enterprise solution built on Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, businesses can expect infrastructure cost savings alongside a reduction in management overhead.
SUSE continues to collaborate with Intel to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure. It is the customer needs that drive the direction of our joint innovation.
