Driving Technology adoption – Persistent Memory: Opportunities, Approaches and Learnings
This talk is about driving technology in general and persistent memory in particular. I will cover the opportunities persistent memory presents, how we drove the efforts to adopt the technology, how we challenged our architects and developers to come up with ideas and build solutions through brainstorming and hack events. I will discuss outcomes of these events, potential open source projects that can be useful for the industry. I will end with lessons learnt and suggestions for vendors, partners and industry as a whole.
I am an Architect in Verizon Media’s Performance Engineering Group with more than 10 years at the company. I explore new technologies and their applications for our workloads, and evangelize those to our numerous properties. I have been working on the evaluation and application of 3D Xpoint and Persistent Memory to real-world use-cases for about three years now.
