Title: High Performance NVM-based Storage System
***************************************


Songqing


Abstract
****************************************
High performance computing requires storage system with huge capacity, 
high bandwidth, low access latency and good energy efficiency. Emerging 
technologies, such as nonvolatile memories (NVMs) are playing a more and 
more important role in high performance computing systems for lower power 
consumption and better scalability. The use of NVMs, however, has brought 
great opportunities as well as challenges to redesign the traditional 
storage architecture. In this talk, the weak points of existing NVMs 
including PCM, STT-RAM and RRAM will be reviewed. Then, the hardware and 
software challenges for applying emerging NVMs in computer architecture 
and storage system are presented and discussed. Keeping in mind these 
challenges, this talk will summarize recent developments of our group in 
high performance NVM-based storage system from hardware level (NVM-based 
storage devices, read and write optimizations in NVM) to software level 
(Object-based NVM Management, NVM-based File System and Metadata 
Accelerator with NVM).   Experiment results show that the advantage of NVM 
is enhanced and the disadvantage is avoided by the hardware and software 
we have designed.
