Disclosure: As a leading DRAM and NAND caching company for data centers and private clouds, we’re collaborating closely with Intel on Optane testing, and it is an area of great interest to us. We’ve been closely following the discussion around the recent Register article that quotes Wikibon’s report on Optane by David Floyer. While we don’t have a subscription to Wikibon and thus can’t read the full report, we wanted to respond, as most IT decision makers will only see the Register article or the Wikibon free preview.
