Impact of adding Persistent Memory / Optane Memory devices to your VM
I had some questions around this in the past month, so I figured I would share some details around this. As persistent memory (Intel Optane Memory devices for instance) is getting more affordable and readily available more and more customers are looking to use it. Some are already using it for very specific use cases, usually in situations where the OS and the App actually understand the type of device being presented. What does that mean? At VMworld 2018 there was a great session on this topic and I captured the session in a post. Let me copy/paste the important bit for you, which discusses the different modes in which a Persistent Memory device can be presented to a VM.
