Feedback form is now closed.
The kernel developers on this panel are at the forefront of persistent memory enabling in Linux. Persistent memory changes fundamental assumptions about storage in the kernel and this has led to healthy debates about how to evolve the kernel into a persistent memory future. The discussion will range from the infrastructure that the kernel has gained to date and look forward to the capabilities that are on the horizon.
