Exadata with Persistent Memory – An Epic Journey
This presentation will introduce background information on Oracle Exadata, a database machine. I will cover how persistent memory is used in Exadata to speed up database IOs. I will describe various technical challenges and common pitfalls encountered, as well as measures in place to handle persistent memory failures.
Zuoyu Tao is a development manager at Oracle who is currently working on various persistent memory projects for the Exadata database machines, such as using persistent memory as a cache for database workloads, handling persistent memory failures without loss of database availability, and using persistent memory as a staging buffer to speed up database writes.
