Challenges with Gluster and Persistent Memory

A discussion of the difficulties posed by persistent memory with Gluster
and  short and long term steps to address them.

Persistent memory will significantly improve storage performance. But these
benefits may be hard to realize in Gluster. Gains are mitigated from costly
network overhead and its deep software layer. It is also likely that the
high costs of persistent memory will limit deployments. This talk shall
discuss short and long term steps to take on those problems. Possible
strategies include better incorporating high speed networks such as
infiniband, client side caching of metadata, and centralizing DHT's
layouts. The talk will include discussion and results from a range of
experiments in software and hardware.
