Abstract: 

I/O is recognized as a performance bottleneck in HPC domains. This is expected to worsen with increase in the disparity between computation and I/O capacity on future HPC machines. The fundamental consideration for all potential technologies and architectures is the trade off between cost and performance. So we need to re-evaluate old architectures and consider new storage architectures and technologies that would address the requirements for capacity and speed.  This presentation discusses how  Storage architectures based on persistent memory can greatly improve the performance bottleneck. Persistent memory data can be accessed even after the process that created or last modified it has ended. Persistent memory moves the storage closer to compute.
