NVDRAM a new technological evolution of a new system revolution?
Speaker: Prof. Avi Mendelson, Technion, Israel
Title: NVDRAM a new technological evolution of a new system revolution?
Nonvolatile memories are being used for quite long time in computer systems. So far, they successfully added another level of abstraction to the current memory hierarchy. The introduction of byte addressable nonvolatile memory may end-up serving the same purpose; i.e., yet another technology evolution, or may be used to carry on the next revolution in system architectures. In my talk, I will give a short survey of what have been done so far in this area and will discuss few challenges that still need to be solved in order to enable NVDRAM to become the enabler of the next computer architecture revolution.
