New processors, chipsets, graphics cards, solid-state drives, and network equipment are released every quarter by the world’s leading IT manufacturers, including Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, and Cisco. Software manufacturers, like Microsoft, Red Hat, VMware, and Citrix, launch beta versions of new operating systems, hypervisors, and software platforms before their final release. While newly-released versions are not the easiest or cheapest to come by, you can try them for free at the Selectel Lab.

Thanks for the opportunity to test out the Intel Optane—I’d heard a lot about it, but never thought I’d be able to actually get my hands on it.

Alexander Nosar

Thanks for the opportunity to get a firsthand look at the hardware. The console tests showed positive results: 2-3 times better than the SSDs already on the system.

Eldar Dzhavadov

The task we looked at with this server deals with machine learning: segmenting users by text markers. We plan to continue testing when Optane becomes a paid service.
