The new Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem) redefines traditional architectures, offering large capacity and new memory tier at an affordable cost. The performance benefits of using persistent memory remotely over a Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) network, in place of traditional storage, can be significant. While the same persistent memory programming rules apply, there is the additional challenge of implementing that programming model over a network. Part 1- of this webinar covered the introduction to RDMA, and how RDMA can be utilized with persistent memory and demonstrated two specific methods that can be utilized today to unlock the use of persistent memory remotely. In this webinar, we go deeper in to RDMA and describe the new RPMA library that will be added to the Persistent Memory Development Kit (PMDK).
Attendees will learn about:
•an overview of existing methods of data replication
•the existing software components that can be used to build remote persistent memory access solutions
•the API developed by the PMDK team to make remote persistent memory access easy to integrate with end-user applications
* For a basic understanding of persistent memory concepts & features of the PMDK, visit the Intel Developer Zone software.intel.com/persistent_memory
