Term Definition

NAM or Network Attached Memory, nodes are connected by the DEEP-ER network to the DEEP-ER Booster Nodes and Cluster Nodes providing shared memory buffers/caches. This is one of the extensions to the DEEP Architecture proposed by DEEP-ER.

NVM, short for non-volatile memory, is an innovative memory technology. In the DEEP-ER hardware architecture, the NVM device is physically attached to the Booster Nodes (BN) and provides local high-performance data storage. Thus, it adds another layer to the memory hierarchy in DEEP-ER.
