In this episode, Dimitris Koutsoukos talks to us about Persistent or Non Volatile Memory (PMEM) and we answer the question: Is it Not Very Meaningful for Databases?
PMEM offers expanded memory capacity and faster access to persistent storage. However, (before Dimitris's work) there was no comprehensive empirical analysis of existing database engines under diferent PMEM modes, to understand how databases can benefit from the various hardware configurations. Dimitris and his colleagues have then analyzes multiple diferent engines under common benchmarks with PMEM in AppDirect mode and Memory mode - tune in to hear the findings!
