Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

SCMFS: A File System for Storage Class Memory

SESSION: Storage and Memory


TIME: 11:00AM - 11:30AM

AUTHOR(S):Xiaojian Wu, Narasimha Reddy


This paper considers the problem of how to implement a file system on Storage Class Memory (SCM), which is both byte addressable and also non-volatile. We claim that both the existing regular file systems and the memory based file systems are not suitable for SCM. In this paper, we propose a new file system, called SCMFS, which is implemented on the virtual address space. In SCMFS, we utilize the existing memory management module in the operating system to do the block management and keep the space always contiguous for each file. The simplicity of SCMFS not only makes it easy to implement, but also improves the performance. We implemented a prototype in Linux and evaluated its performance through multiple benchmarks.
