Whole-system Persistence with Non-volatile Memories

Today’s databases and key-value stores commonly keep all their data in main memory. A single server can have over 100 GB of memory, and a cluster of such servers can have 10s to 100s of TB. However, a storage back end is still required for recovery from failures. cont…

The Problems with Memories

Memories are and always have been a thorny problem for designers of computers, servers, caching RAID and other caching hard-disk controllers, and many other types of processor-based embedded systems. Memorycentric design problems aren’t unique to microprocessor-based systems and they even predate the semiconductor era. The problems go all the way back to day one. ENIAC, often called the world’s first electronic computer, used punched paper cards for data storage. The one million punched cards needed to store the data for ENIAC’s first shakedown program, which was developed by two Manhattan Project computer scientists in late 1945, filled an entire railroad boxcar when the scientists traveled from Los Alamos, New Mexico to ENIAC’s birthplace at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. It quickly became apparent that such voluminous memory-storage technology needed radical improvement and memory has been shrinking ever since. cont…
