Why the end of Optane is bad news for all IT


"The marketing people couldn't explain why I needed it, and I haven't found a use for it"

That's because Intel marketing isn't about justifying the relevance of any of their products/solutions to the market - it's just about telling the market that because it's from Intel they need it and producing big posters with lots of buz-words shouting at you.

I sat (dozed) through countless internal Intel presentations (gotta show all those Powerpoint slides!) which made it very clear that Intel makes products/solutions because it can rather than understand what the market actually needs and develop relevant solutions.

But hey whilst there's still time for the lifers to accumulate their super-sized benefits why stop a good thing!

Oh wait....

Why Intel killed its Optane memory business


Total arrogance and lack of understanding from Intel

Worked in the Optane memory division for a while - what a shambles

Total arrogance and lack of understanding from Intel with their proposition - "Hey use our PMem (those few who have an environment where you can!) with our latest CPU's (but not those cheaper, more efficient CPU's from those pesky competitors like AMD or Arm-based solutions). Division over-run with a herd of Intel lifers who couldn't sell a shovel to a grave digger

Intel's head so far up its arse that failed to see the issues with product positioning - let alone its lack of mass market applicability in the real-life user environments

Not all bad though - got some healthy contributions into my Pension from Intel while I suffered their shit - show from the inside

Deserved to fail
