more to come


We have got 76 units of 128GB DCPMM. A big ‘thank you’ to Intel Poland! The memory chips were installed on the motherboards and the servers were configured to use DCPMM as part of the main memory on May 22.


Intel Pre-release Loan Agreement (IPLA) has been signed up.


Six powerful Inspur servers have arrived directly from Oregon, USA [photo]. They were installed in our server room on March 16 [photo]. Here is the specification. Now, we are waiting for the Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory (DCPMM). We would like to thank Intel Corporation (in particular, Intel Poland) for their generous support!


Intel Loan Agreement for Persistent Datastore Project has been signed up.

We are pleased to announce that the Persistent Datastore project by Paweł T. Wojciechowski, titled: Scalable in-memory data store systems based on mixed-consistency data types and replication algorithms for efficient and anomaly-free data management in the emerging NVM-based computer architectures, has received funding for three years from Foundation for Polish Science within the TEAM grant programme (no 5/2017). In a three-stage competition, 13 winning projects were selected from among 60 applications.
