Since the early days of computing, memory has been volatile, byte-addressable, and directly accessed with user-mode reads and writes, while storage has been durable, block-addressable, and accessed via system calls. In this talk, I will cover how Persistent Memory (PM) can change this dichotomy by allowing user-mode reads and writes direct byte-addressable access to emerging non-volatile memory technologies. I will first introduce basic system interfaces and mechanisms that enable developers safely program with persistent memory. I will then report on our experiences and findings from analyzing several modern applications based on persistent memory, and discuss implications of such findings to future research.

Short Bio:
Haris Volos is a senior researcher at Hewlett Packard Labs in Palo Alto. He is interested in systems in a broad sense, including operating and distributed systems, data storage systems, and the interaction of hardware architecture with systems. His current research focuses on programming models and system software for emerging byte-addressable non-volatile memory. He received his engineering degree from the National Technical University of Athens (Metsovion), and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
