Abstract: 

The commercialization of Persistent Memory is well underway, fundamentally changing the way processors load and store information. The characteristics of the non-volatile memory media (3DXP, PCM, MRAM, RRAM, others) determine the basic performance, reliability, and cost that Persistent Memory can deliver to the system. Brand new methods of processor attachment (DDR5, DDR-T, NVDIMM, CXL, CCIX, Gen-Z, OpenCAPI) for Persistent Memory promise to broaden its usage far beyond “DRAM replacement”, opening up vast resources enabling memory and power hungry applications.

In this talk, the speaker will:

  • Discuss the basic characteristics of Persistent Memory Media
  • Articulate how Persistent Memory enhances server architectures
  • Identify, compare, contrast the new methods for Persistent Memory attachment
  • Propose innovative ways applications will utilize Persistent Memory to overcome memory and power limitations
  • Discuss who is doing what within the Persistent Memory ecosystem
