Persistent Memory: What Changes When DRAM is all We Need?

Persistent memory is a class of storage that is similar to DRAM in terms of performance, speed and cost. The major change is that it does not lose its state when power is lost. These technologies exist today in the market and will be coming into broad use over the next few years.This presentation will give some details of what work is going on in the kernel to prepare file and storage systems for keeping up with the demands of this new technology. New file systems, performance tuning of the existing stack and proposals around how applications will need to change will all be discussed.
