Greetings - it seems as though the work we've done in DS/DA has exposed some interesting thinking particularly with respect to NVM.  I think it's worthy of exposing it to a broader audience at the OFA workshop.  Here's a starting point for an abstract:

OFI Data Storage / Data Access in a World of NVM
The Data Storage/Data Access work group (part of the broader OFI project to develop transport-neutral APIs) has been considering the role of a possible new API in accessing Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), to include both local and remote versions.  Of particular interest is the use of byte-addressable NVM, and particularly remote byte-addressable NVM.  In this session, we will describe the exploratory work that has been done resulting and the small number of system models we have developed in order to describe the methods that could be used by consumers to access these devices.

Comments by email are always welcome, but in any case let's plan to discuss this at tomorrow's meeting.
