Liqid, Intel Optane Take Aim at DRAM with New Fabric Package

December 05, 2018 / Chris Preimesberger

New-gen IT infrastructure provider Liqid and old-school chipmaker Intel have combined forces to produce a new alternative, solid state-based storage memory fabric in an effort to dislodge conventional DRAM (dymanic random-access memory) and bring better efficiencies to data centers. At the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations and Cloud Strategies Conference 2018, Liqid, which makes trendy composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) and NVMe (non-volatile memory) solutions, on Dec. 5 demonstrated its own and Intel’s Optane solid-state drive solutions that combine the performance of Intel Optane SSDs with Liqid’s new-gen PCIe fabrics to offer projected new levels of performance.Liqid Grid is a package that uses an intelligent PCI-Express (PCIe) fabric switch with Liqid’s Command Center software to enable bare-metal composable infrastructure.
