In this video, Ankita Kejriwal from Stanford presents: The RAMCloud Project.

The RAMCloud project is creating a new class of storage, based entirely in DRAM, that is 2-3 orders of magnitude faster than existing storage systems. If successful, it will enable new applications that manipulate large-scale datasets much more intensively than has ever been possible before. In addition, we think RAMCloud, or something like it, will become the primary storage system for cloud computing environments such as Amazon’s AWS and Microsoft’s Azure.

The presentation was recorded at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference 2013. Download the slides (PDF).
