Persistent memory is a new class of hardware that has roughly the same cost, capacity and performance as DRAM, but keeps its state over power loss. In both the Linux community and in broader industry circles, the challenge these parts present stress our current data path and present challenges to applications as well. This talk will give details on the current work in the kernel space, look at different APIs that are being proposed for applications and talk about how these parts might be used in systems.
