NVDIMM Virtualization - Xiao Guangrong, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

NVDIMM is the key feature introduced to Intel Skylake Servers which has the density characteristics of NAND FLASH but performance characteristics comparable to DRAM. This opens up the opportunity of introducing a new level in the memory hierarchy that enables both the traditional volatile system memory and a new persistent memory accessed via the same synchronous, load/store semantics.

Virtualization plays a key role in cloud infrastructure, introducing NVDIMM into the virtualization field brings IT revolution and infrastructure changes.

As the contributor of NVDIMM virtualization, we will talk about the implementation of vNVDIMM and how it can be used in tradition cloud computing and why it bring signification benefit for lightweight virtualization such as Intel's Clear-Container.
