Abstract: The continued need for scaling of performance, capacity, and cost efficiency for data-intensive applications, is giving rise to new system designs combining heterogeneous memory components, accelerators and near memory processing, disaggregation, and new high-speed and programmable interconnects. Maximizing the benefits of the resulting complex memory fabrics requires new methods for coordinating decisions concerning data placement, movement, accesses and transformations, across different system components and across the entire stack. This talk will present several promising directions to tackle this complexity and benefit from the capabilities provided by the emerging heterogeneous substrate, and will highlight select results from our group’s recent research in this space.
