SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 25 – The Cloud Advisory Council, an innovative not-for-profit organization dedicated to develop and enable the next-generation cloud architecture, today announced a live, interactive joint webinar with John Ousterhout from Stanford University on RAMCloud, a general-purpose storage system where all data lives in DRAM at all times and large-scale systems are created by aggregating the main memories of thousands of commodity servers. RAMCloud provides durable and available DRAM-based storage for the same cost as volatile caches, and it offers performance 10-100X faster than existing storage systems.
“Over the last few years it has become cost-effective to use DRAM as the primary storage medium for data,” said John Ousterhout, Professor (Research) of Stanford University. “In this talk I will describe how to build storage systems based on DRAM, and why they are likely to enable a new breed of applications that use large data sets very intensively.”
“The Cloud Advisory Council’s primary mission is to explore technologies and solutions that can enhance our capability to build and use more efficient cloud infrastructures,” said Eli Karpilovski, Cloud Advisory Council Chairman. “We are happy to host a webinar on the RAMCloud DRAM-based cloud storage development and plan to continue to provide more of such events to our audience.”
What: RAMCloud: Scalable High-Performance Storage Entirely in DRAM
When: Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 8:00 am Pacific Time / 11:00 am Eastern
Speakers: John Ousterhout, Professor (Research), Stanford University and Eli Karpilovski, Cloud Advisory Council Chairman
