Disaggregation and rack-scale systems have the potential of drastically increasing TCO and utilization of cloud datacenters, while maintaining performance. In this paper, we present a novel rack-scale system architecture featuring software-defined remote memory disaggregation. Our hardware design and operating system extensions enable unmodified applications to dynamically attach to memory segments residing on physically remote memory pools and use such remote segments in a byte-addressable… CONTINUE READING
