Using Non-volatile Memory (NVDIMM-N) as Byte-Addressable Storage in Windows Server 2016
This session covers the use of non-volatile memory (NVDIMM-N) in a byte-addressable mode with a DirectAccess (DAX), a.k.a. zero-copy file system in Windows Server 2016. In this mode, DAX-aware applications can expect ultra-low latency access (orders of magnitude compared to SSD) to the persistent storage medium and gain significant efficiencies. The open-source NVML library makes this transition easier for apps.
