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.

    The Discussion

      Very interesting... I think I've to rewrite some of our DB projects :-) but, you know what would be a nice feature to make it even easier and more performant? If I could map different blocks continuous into the memory. So, if I could use MapViewOfFileEx with multiple sets of data or if I could use MapViewOfFile in combination with VirtualAlloc (first MEM_RESERVE, then MapViewOfFile into this space).
