Presentation: Running NoSQL natively on Flash

Time: Thursday 09:45 - 10:30 / Location: Bridewell Suite

This presentation will focus on how NoSQL databases can utilize flash to improve performance by accessing a low latency memory tier. Flash has long been a favorite among database architects to lower DRAM requirements and improve lantecy regardless of workload size. Learn how new storage API primitives are changing the way storage is accessed and used by letting applications tap into the native performance characteristics of flash. The talk will also outline the new DirectFS Linux filesystem used for providing native application access to flash architectures.
