Introduction to Persistent Memory Allocator and Transactions

  • Overview
  • Resources

Persistent memory programming comes with a set of benefits and challenges. The Persistent Memory Development Kit (PMDK) is a collection of open source libraries developed by Intel which make it easy for developers to enable persistent memory in their applications. libpmemobj is a general purpose library in PMDK that supports persistent memory allocator and transactional operations. In this webinar we will describe how the persistent memory allocator works, the need for transactions and how transactions are implemented in libpmemobj. Prepare your code to take advantage of Intel® persistent memory.
