Liqid composable infrastructure Intel® Optane™ Technology solution

Liqid Command Center™ Software Enables Composable Intel® Optane™ SSDs as Direct-Connected PCIe Resource

Liqid delivers improved resource management and utilization with software-defined bare metal composability for Intel® Optane™ SSD based solutions. Composable Intel Optane Technology combines the unparalleled high throughput, low latency, quality of service (QoS) and endurance of Intel Optane SSDs with Liqid’s industry-leading PCIe fabrics to provide composability with scaling of capacity and bandwidth. Achieving DRAM-like data speeds, Intel Optane SSDs are allocated directly across PCIe as bare metal resources. Liqid’s software driven ultra-low-latency platform simplifies the deployment and dynamic resource orchestration of Intel Optane technology based solutions.
