The combination of the SAP HANA platform and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory means that enterprises now have new ways to approach data tiering and management. Downtime can be significantly reduced because SAP HANA doesn’t have to reload data back into main memory after a server reboot, and more data can remain in the “hot” tier of main memory, which increases the amount of data that can be analyzed at a time. See this new infographic for a quick summary.
Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory also benefits SAP HANA by providing a higher memory density than DRAM, in addition to being byte-addressable. Up to three terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory is available per CPU socket on systems configured with future Intel® Xeon® Gold processors and future Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, which means that an eight-socket server can contain up to 24 terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory.
Infrastructure considerations for IT leaders
By 2020, deep learning will have reached a fundamentally different stage of maturity. Deployment and adoption will no longer be confined to experimentation, becoming a core part of day-to-day business operations across most fields of research and industries.
Why? Because advancements in the speed and accuracy of the hardware and software that underpin deep learning workloads have made it both viable and cost-effective. Much of this added value will be generated by deep learning inference – that is, using a model to infer something about data it has never seen before. Models can be deployed in the cloud or data center, but more and more we will see them on end devices like cameras and phones.
Intel predicts that there will be a shift in the ratio between cycles of inference and training from 1:1 in the early days of deep learning, to well over 5:1 by 2020¹. Intel calls this the shift to ‘inference at scale’ and, with inference also taking up
-memory databases have moved from being an expensive option for exceptional analytics workloads, to delivering on a far broader set of goals. Using real-world examples and scenarios, in this guide we look at the component parts of in-memory analytics, and consider how to ensure such capabilities can be deployed to maximize business value from both the technology and the insights generated.
Evaluating an existing HPC platform for efficient AI-driven workloads
The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, data volumes and computing power in recent years mean that AI is now a serious consideration for most organizations. When combined with high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities, its potential grows even stronger. However, converging the two approaches requires careful thought and planning. New AI initiatives must align with organizational strategy. Then AI workloads must integrate with your existing HPC infrastructure to achieve the best results in the most efficient and cost- effective way. This paper outlines the key considerations for organizations looking to bring AI into their HPC environment, and steps they can take to ensure the success of their first forays into HPC/AI convergence.
You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle
A study commissioned by Intel Corp.
One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero
downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.

As marketers chase after the same people with the same tactics, traditional marketing has become less worth the time—and the money.
Email outreach worked until spam clogged up inboxes. Content marketing worked until everybody started to put out sub-standard material. And search engine marketing worked until it became inundated with new players clamoring for attention. Even inbound tactics aren’t delivering the results they once did.
And as the need for performance continues to climb, so does the status of account-based marketing (ABM). In the B2B sphere it’s on the tip of everyone’s tongue.
