Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR UNIFORM MEMORY ACCESS IN A STORAGE CLUSTER
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR UN ACCÈS À MÉMOIRE UNIFORME DANS UN GROUPE DE STOCKAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The present application presents a Uniform Memory Access (UMA) network including a cluster of UMA nodes each having at least one UMA memory unit and a server local to the at least one UMA memory unit. A respective UMA memory unit in a respective UMA node comprises persistent memory; non-persistent memory, a node control device operatively coupled to the persistent memory and the non-persistent memory, a local interface for interfacing with the local server in the respective UMA node, and a network interface for interfacing with the UMA network. The node control device is configured to translate between a local unified memory access (UMA) address space accessible by applications running on the local server and a global UMA address space that is mapped to a physical UMA address space. The physical UMA address space includes physical address spaces associated with different UMA nodes in the cluster of UMA nodes.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un réseau d'accès à mémoire uniforme (UMA) comprenant un groupe de nœuds UMA ayant chacun au moins une unité de mémoire UMA et un serveur local à la ou aux unités de mémoire UMA. Une unité de mémoire UMA respective dans un nœud UMA respectif comprend une mémoire persistante ; une mémoire non persistante, un dispositif de commande de nœud couplé de manière fonctionnelle à la mémoire persistante et à la mémoire non persistante, une interface locale pour faire interface avec le serveur local dans le nœud UMA respectif, et une interface réseau pour faire interface avec le réseau UMA. Le dispositif de commande de nœud est configuré pour effectuer une translation entre un espace d’adresse d'accès à mémoire unifié (UMA) local accessible par des applications s’exécutant sur le serveur local et un espace d’adresse UMA global qui est mappé à un espace d’adresse UMA physique. L’espace d’adresse UMA physique comprend des espaces d’adresse physique associés à différents nœuds UMA dans le groupe de nœuds UMA.
