New memory technologies are emerging which bring substantial performance and reliability benefits, but these benefits are only achieved with careful provisioning and on-going management of the memory subsystem. Non-volatile memory technologies in particular have unique characteristics that require rethinking memory and storage management. This talk begins with an overview of emerging memory device types with a focus on non-volatile DIMMs. We’ll cover the management concepts and features of these new technologies and put them in the context of overall memory subsystem and server management. The talk concludes with an overview of SNIA, DMTF and other standards that are being introduced to drive interoperability and encourage the development of memory subsystem management tools.

Learning Objectives

Discuss the features of emerging memory technologies and the system management challenges that result from these new features
Discover the concepts, practices and tools that administrators can use to discover, provision, and manage the growing complexity of the memory subsystem
Review the standardization efforts, documentation, and open source code available to developers looking to get started with memory management development projects
