What is 3D XPoint?

3D Xpoint is a new non-volatile memory technology that has much lower latency and much higher endurance than NAND Flash. Optane is Intel’s trade-name for SSDs using 3D Xpoint as their storage media.

VAST Universal Storage Systems use Optane SSDs to store system and element store metadata as well as as a write buffer.
