Be the first to experience the world’s fastest solid-state drive: the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series.
Selectel will provide a dedicated server built with the Intel® Optane™ SSD completely for free, making you one of the first to use the latest innovation in computing technology. All you have to do is write about your experience with the Intel® Optane™ on a blog, website, or relevant online community at the end of the test period.
The world’s fastest SSD: Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series
The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series is built with revolutionary 3D XPoint™ memory technology and is the first product to combine attributes of memory and storage. This innovative solution is optimized with a new data tier to break through storage bottlenecks.
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 reading test that took a virtual machine around twelve hours—practically blocked the host’s disk—took the Intel Optane about ten minutes. It was interesting to look around inside the server; this hardware is completely new to me. The configuration was perfect for a distributed search of gravitational waves. Memory is critical for the project; if there’s not enough or it’s too slow, unit calculations will drag: what should take 12 hours could take several days. But everything ran on your equipment without any hesitation.Aleksandr Vinogradov
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.Aleksandr Maslov
We optimize algorithms in the field of computational electrodynamics and work with enormous matrices, which have to be saved on harddisks. For certain blocks, the Intel Optane proved to work twice as fast. We evaluated read and write speeds for different writable block volumes and compared them to the speeds of the other SSDs on the system.Vyacheslav Kizimenko
Intel® Memory Drive Technology is optimized for the low latency and high endurance of the Intel® Optane™ SSD and makes the OS and applications recognize the SSD as DRAM. Intel® Memory Drive Technology can run out-of-the-box without making any changes to your applications or OS.
