  • Publication number: 20190250837
    Abstract: A memory appliance may be provided comprising a processor, a communication interface, a memory, and a region access unit. The memory may be configured in an address space addressable by the processor. The communication interface may be configured to provide the client access to the region of the memory via client-side memory access before initialization of all of the region. A method to create a virtual copy of memory accessible by client-side memory access is also provided. A system may be provided that memory maps at least a portion of a file to a memory region, wherein a virtual address addressable is generated, and the at least a portion of file is accessible through the memory region at the virtual address. The virtual address may be registered with the communication interface, where registration of the virtual address provides client-side memory access to the memory region.

  • Patent number: 10372335
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing a virtualization instance on an apparatus access to external primary memory, where the external primary memory is memory that is external to the apparatus but primary memory to the apparatus. Methods and systems to migrate a virtualization instance from a first client to a second client are provided in which memory of the virtualization instance is copied to from a first region to a second region without being copied to or from the first client or the second client. Methods and systems are provided for limiting local primary memory usage by a virtualization instance. After the flushing or the shooting down a translation lookaside buffer, a selected memory portion corresponding to a page table entry is marked dirty based on a portion-tracking data structure indicating that the page table entry for the selected memory portion was dirty when the selected memory portion was unmapped.

  • Patent number: 10346042
    Abstract: Dynamically provisionable and allocatable memory external to a requesting apparatus may be provided. A request for primary memory may be made by an application executing on a client. An allocation logic unit may determine an allocation strategy in response to the request. As part of the allocation strategy, the allocation logic unit may identify memory appliances on which memory regions are to be allocated. The allocated memory regions may form the primary memory that is allocated to the requesting application. The allocation logic unit may send region allocation requests to region access unit of the respective memory appliances. The memory appliances on which the memory regions are allocated may be external to the client. The application may access the allocated memory regions via client-side access in which one or more processors in the client and/or the memory appliances are bypassed.

  • Publication number: 20190042103
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses may be provided, where data is written to a first region of memory on a first memory appliance in response to a write operation, the first region of memory is external memory to the client device, and the first region of memory is accessible by the client device over a network via client-side memory access in which a first communication interface of the first memory appliance is configured to access the first region of memory on the first memory appliance; and where the data of the write operation is caused to be written to a second region of memory on a second memory appliance, and wherein the data of the write operation is recoverable from a subset of the memory regions, the subset excluding the first region of memory or the second region of memory.

  • Patent number: 10114763
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for fork-safe memory allocation from memory-mapped files. A child process may be provided a memory mapping at a same virtual address as a parent process, but the memory mapping may map the virtual address to a different location within a file than for the parent process.

  • Patent number: 9921771
    Abstract: A system may be provided comprising: a local primary memory; an interconnect; and a processor, the processor configured to cause, in response to a memory allocation request from an application, allocation of a region of an external primary memory included in a memory appliance, the external primary memory in the memory appliance accessible by the system over the interconnect with client-side memory access, wherein the client-side memory access is independent of a central processing unit of the memory appliance, wherein the external primary memory is memory that is external to the system and primary memory to the system, and wherein the processor is further configured to operate the local primary memory as a cache for data accessed in the external primary memory included in the memory appliance.
