How Will Persistent Memory Change Software Design?



Maciej Maciejewski talks about the primary differences between persistent memory, storage devices, and regular DRAM. He presents how Persistent Memory is exposed to the OS with ACPI 6.0 extensions, and describes the resulting changes made upstream to the Linux kernel to provide direct access. He also describes an open source library, known as the NVM Library.


Maciej Maciejewski works at Intel Technology Poland, where he is dealing with software solutions focusing on the next-gen non-volatile memory. He has worked at ADVA Optical Networking as a Senior Software Manager for 8 years. He has lead architectural work on the EU project ONE, with focus on next generation converged IP-optical network management systems.
