Persistent memory provides storage that is low latency and high bandwidth. However, the same features that make persistent memory so appealing also make it challenging to build data systems that effectively utilize persistent memory. In this talk, I’ll talk about my group’s experiences building a variety of data systems for persistent memory, ranging from single-node key-value stores to file systems and disaggregated key-value stores. I’ll share common challenges and lessons learnt from these projects, and present some open challenges that need to be solved to fully utilize persistent memory in the future.
