NOVA: A Log-structured File System for Hybrid Volatile/Non-volatile Main Memories

  title={NOVA: A Log-structured File System for Hybrid Volatile/Non-volatile Main Memories},
  author={Jian Xu and Steven Swanson},
Fast non-volatile memories (NVMs) will soon appear on the processor memory bus alongside DRAM. The resulting hybrid memory systems will provide software with submicrosecond, high-bandwidth access to persistent data, but managing, accessing, and maintaining consistency for data stored in NVM raises a host of challenges. Existing file systems built for spinning or solid-state disks introduce software overheads that would obscure the performance that NVMs should provide, but proposed file systems… CONTINUE READING
