Non-volatile memory (NVM), such as phase change memory (PCM) and resistive random-access memory (ReRAM), is a promising technique to build future high performance computing (HPC) systems. The popularity of many-core platforms in HPC and large data sets in commercial workloads and scientificc simulations drive the fast development of NVM. The non-volatility and high performance of NVM blur the line between storage and main memory, hinting at opportunities to overhaul classical IO system and memory hierarchies.
This project explores and design programming models, runtime, and algorithms to leverage future NVM-based parallel systems.
