Is this for Optane only or are there other NVRAM technology dimms available to consumers?
There are enclosures for traditional DIMMs with backup battery. Not sure if they provide the same “API”, though.
Verbatim from Peter Bourgon:
Hmm, the proposal feels like it’s at the wrong level of abstraction. If persistent memory is more like an alternative heap, then it should be more deeply integrated to the existing allocation mechanisms, and not require a separate New/Make interface. If it’s more like a file, or repository, or something higher level, then New/Make is too low-level.
