NVM is coming. In this series of videos from the OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop 2014, Jim Ryan and Doug Voight describe Non-Volatile Memory as a disruptive technology for HPC.
For real-time deployments like financial services, the most current advancement to come along in the last two decades is the revolution of non-volatile memory as a persistent memory tier. We are only scratching the surface of how this new memory tier can be used to build systems that outperform and outscale similar systems that were built in the last few years. This technology allows reinventing all kind of software from database to messaging systems.
