As new tiers between DRAM and centralized storage are being introduced into our platforms, how to view and use those resources varies depending on who you ask. Using it as slow memory or fast storage each address a different problem area for programming, but introduce new challenges for long term data management, workflows, and data interoperability formerly addressed through storage specific interfaces. Which of these should remain and which are obsolete is not as clearcut as one might like to believe. This talk focuses on the challenges and opportunities for PM from a storage and workflow perspective.
