|Topic||Big Memory servers and modern approaches to disk-based computation|
|Abstract||There is a new computing paradigm available today facilitated by commodity server platforms. It is often called Big Memory solutions because it exposes a large RAM subsystem to the Operating System and therefore afford the application programmer a number of previously unavailable options for data management. Additionally, certain vendor-specific solutions offer additional memory management options that pay dividends in data reliability and access speeds. A survey of these offerings and the promise of massive memory compute will be discussed.|
