This open source project is dedicated to making persistent memory programming easier for application developers. Over time, we hope to host several libraries, examples, and documents related to persistent memory. Current activity is focused on the NVM Library, which builds on the programming model for persistent memory recommended by the SNIA NVM Programming Technical Workgroup.

What is persistent memory? See the full definition used by this project on the Glossary page. In short, it is an emerging technology that introduces a new tier between memory and storage, a byte-addressable storage, accessed by the application using loads and stores like memory. This new technology comes with a number of challenges which is why this project was created.
