Given the decreasing cost of non-volatile RAM (NVRAM), by the late 1990's it will be feasible for most workstations to include a megabyte or more of NVRAM, enabling the design of higher-performance, more reliable systems. We present the trace-driven simulation and analysis of two uses of NVRAM to improve I/O performance in distributed file systems: non-volatile file caches on client workstations to reduce write traffic to file servers, and write buffers for write-optimized file systems todoi:10.1145/143371.143380 fatcat:tcqd7yxo5ne5zawbsy5d27yalm
