On April 2nd, 2019, Intel announced the availability of the Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory. The collaboration between Aerospike and Intel has resulted in significant performance advantages and scalability, configuration ease, resilience, and reboot times.
Earlier, in December of 2018, Aerospike became the first open database to support Intel® Optane™ persistent memory. With deep optimizations for Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory, Aerospike Enterprise Edition 4.5 offers unprecedented scale for real-time applications at affordable cost and with higher availability than DRAM-only solutions.

Benefits of Aerospike with Intel Persistent Memory
Aerospike’s tiered internal architecture has been optimized to use persistent memory natively, giving capabilities far beyond taking an in-memory database and simply inserting persistent memory. Aerospike Database achieves the following advantages by utilizing the Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory:
