NVMalloc: Exposing an Aggregate SSD Store as a Memory Partition in Extreme-Scale Machines

DRAM is a precious resource in extreme-scale machines and is increasingly becoming scarce, mainly due to the growing number of cores per node. On future multi-petaflop and exaflop machines, the memory pressure is likely to be so severe that we need to rethink our memory usage models. Fortunately, the advent of non-volatile memory (NVM) offers a unique… CONTINUE READING
