SUSE has announced support for 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, formerly code named “Cascade Lake,” following on the heels of becoming the first enterprise Linux optimised for Intel Optane DC persistent memory with SAP HANA workloads earlier this year. 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.
“Organisations today face increasing pressure to become more agile and economically efficient in order to grow, compete and survive. We’re helping them harness today’s explosive innovation as they embrace hybrid and multi-cloud as well as on-premises environments to fuel and enable their digital transformation. Intel’s persistent memory technology will spark new applications for data access and storage, with in-memory database solutions being just one application. It is customer needs that drive our joint innovation with Intel, and we continue to partner to serve customers worldwide who are looking to fuel growth by transforming their IT infrastructure,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, SUSE President of Engineering, Product and Innovation.
Alper Ilkbahar, Vice President and General Manager of Datacenter Memory and Storage Solutions at Intel, said, “Intel is focused on data-centric transformation by disrupting the memory and storage hierarchy and helping our customers address the massive increase in data they face daily. By collaborating with software leaders like SUSE, we are able to help customers more quickly and confidently deploy Intel Optane DC persistent memory, and reap the rewards of this transformational technology.”
