Title: Importance Data Locality in Servers (AKA - How do I get to my Data faster?)
Dr. Manu Awasthi, Samsung Semiconductors in San Jose, California
Date & Time: November 24, 2015 11:00
Venue: Conference Room, C Block, 01st Floor, Dept. of CSE, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Bldg
Datacenters are becoming increasingly commonplace with web- and mobile- based applications offloading their compute and storage requirements to backend datacenter installations. The exploding size of data that these servers operate on is increasingly making the memory and storage subsystems the primary performance bottleneck. This talk will highlight the varied characteristics of datacenter applications, the diversity of performance metrics that need to be considered for a balanced system design, as well as exemplify some key issues with the system hardware and software stacks which make datacenter memory and storage design extremely challenging. Then, we will highlight the importance of data locality in the memory hierarchy and provide some examples of hardware-software co-design mechanisms to increase locality and hence, application performance.
Speaker Profile:
Manu Awasthi is a System Architect with the Memory Solutions Lab at Samsung Semiconductors in San Jose, California where he works on design and performance analysis of memory and storage subsystems for datacenters. Before that, he was with the Architecture Definition Group (ADG) at Micron Semiconductors where he worked on modeling and performance analysis of DRAM architectures, including the Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC). Manu earned a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Utah, and a Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT (BHU), Varanasi. He is the author of several conference and journal publications, including two best paper awards.
