New Storage Technologies and Their Impact on File System Design


André Brinkmann

Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz

Sondertermin: 9:30 Uhr, APB 2101

New persistent memory technologies like phase-change memory or magnetoresistive RAM are blurring the boundaries between memory and storage. Their performance is similar to conventional DRAM, while they are non-volatile and their costs might become close to the costs of SSDs. Designing file systems for persistent memory will pose a number of challenges to the software stack, as the latencies of read and write requests to them are in the same order as the latency of a system call. It is therefore important to reduce the storage software stack to its minimum. This talk will discuss upcoming persistent memory technologies as well as the software challenges related to their introduction.
