We compare NVCache against file systems tailored for NVMM (Ext4-DAX and NOVA) and with I/O-heavy applications (SQLite, RocksDB).  ...  This paper introduces NVCache, an approach that uses a non-volatile main memory (NVMM) as a write cache to improve the write performance of legacy applications.  ...  In a nutshell, NVCACHE is a plugand-play I/O booster implemented only in user space that essentially consists in an NVMM write cache.  ...
