Abstract: 

Persistent memory is a new silicon technology, adding a distinct storage tier of performance, capacity, and price between DRAM and Flash. The persistent memory is physically present on the memory bus of the storage server resulting in reads at memory speed, much faster than flash. Writes are persistent, surviving power cycles, unlike DRAM. Oracle has engineered Exadata Smart PMEM Cache and Exadata Smart PMEM Log functions to achieve this significant boost in Oracle Database performance.

Jia Shi, Sr. Dir of SW Development will describe the engineering details of their implementation in Exadata and how Oracle's software development teams are innovating with this technology.
