Main Event:
John Shuheng will be speaking on FaRM (
FaRM is a distributed in-memory storage system with a single virtual address space and support for strictly serializable transactions at very low latency. The system achieves much lower latency previously possible by skipping CPU involvement in most transactions through heavily optimizing the transaction protocol using one-sided RDMA reads and writes
