Abstract: 

One of the major barriers to adoption of persistent memory is preparing applications to make use of it's direct access capabilities. This presentation will discuss a new user space file system for persistent memory and how it breaks these barriers. The presentation will introduce the key elements to consider for a user space persistent memory file system and discuss the internals of this new file system. The discussion will conclude with a presentation of current status and performance of this new persistent memory file system. Learning Objectives Discussion of current barriers to persistent memory adoption. Introduce how this new file system breaks down the barriers to adoption of persistent memory. Introduce the SW internals of the this file system. Present performance statistics and discussion of why this file system out-performs conventional, kernel based file systems.
