Advanced Big Data Processing frameworks have been proposed to harness the fast data transmission capability of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over high-speed networks such as InfiniBand, RoCEv1, RoCEv2, iWARP, and OmniPath. However, with the introduction of the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) and NVM express (NVMe) based SSD, these designs along with the default Big Data processing models need to be re-assessed to discover the possibilities of further enhanced performance. In this talk, we will present, NRCIO, a high-performance communication runtime for non-volatile memory over modern network interconnects that can be leveraged by existing Big Data processing middleware. We will show the performance of non-volatile memory-aware RDMA communication protocols using our proposed runtime and demonstrate its benefits by incorporating it into a high-performance in-memory key-value store, Apache Hadoop, Tez, Spark, and TensorFlow. Evaluation results illustrate that NRCIO can achieve up to 3.65x performance improvement for representative Big Data processing workloads on modern data centers.
