Microsoft's Jim Pinkerton explained how the company has created new drivers for storage class memory (SCM), saying the traditional SCSI interfaces were much too slow.
The company has built a new SCM Bus Driver and an SCM Disk Driver, which will be part of a soon to be released Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview. He noted that this allows for block or direct access storage (what others called byte-accessible storage), with a determination made at format time. Block storage preserves backwards compatibility, while direct access storage offers the lowest latency. He said a demo with HPE late last year on a SQL database with NVDIMMs, it forecast a 12 percent improvement in throughput and a 52 percent decrease in latency when just a small amount of persistent memory was used; and with a simulation when it was all put on a storage class memory, it could show a 53 percent improvement in throughput and an 82 percent reduction in latency. But Pinkerton acknowledged the limitations of this approach.
