Operating System Support for
Next Generation Large Scale NVRAM

Organized by KIISE SIGFAST & Computer Systems Society,
Oct. 26 - Oct. 28, 2017, Jeju, Korea

SSD and Beyond...

We have been experiencing rapid advancement of Semiconductor technology during past decades. Specifically, nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) technology is envisioned as promising technology which can bring quantum jump on legacy computer paradigm. For example, its access time is order of magnitude faster than legacy storage device, e.g. hard disk drive, and it can preserve data without power. It include Flash memory, MRAM, FRAM, Spin-RAM, and etc.

Among these, flash memory is being proliferated as the storage device for enterprise server as well as mobile devices. Furthermore, emergence of next generation NVRAM device such as PRAM, FRAM, and MRAM calls for changes in all layers of software stack. Data structures and algorithms for all software layers such as firmware, operating systems, database, and applications requires overhauling properly incorporating the physical characteristics of new NVRAM devices. File-systems and buffer caches are typical example.

Current state of art software technology leaves much to be desired to effectively exploit the physical characteristics of next generation NVRAM. NVRAMOS 2017 aims at bring together the experts from industry and academia and provides a forum to discuss technical topics, exchange vision, and share views. Topics of interests in this workshop include but not limited to the following.

  • System Software, e.g. operating system and database, for Storage Class Memory
  • Application software for Storage Class Memory
  • System software issue for SSD
  • Hardware and controller issues for SSD
  • Emerging NVRAMs and their software technologies
  • Multicore and next generation NVRAMs

Official Language

The official language of NVRAMOS 2017 is Korean.
