Abstract: Storage Class Memory (SCM) is an emerging new class of storage that will enter the market in two to three years. It combines word access to non-volatile RAM in a single CPU instruction with significantly lower prices than DRAM. SCM access speed will be in the order of 100ns. In a collaborative project Fujitsu Technologies and SAP Innovation Center are investigating new software architectures and designs for in-memory databases, which are best suited to leverage the capabilities of SCM.

The project will create an emulation of SCM to facilitate hardware-based experiments. As the opinions about the eventual latency and throughput of SCM differ, the characteristics of the emulator can be configured. In a first step the emulated SCM will be used to persist the transactional database logging.
