Predictable Real-time Data Management Over Persistent Storage Media

3 April 2024, Seattle, USA: McObject®, a leading provider of embedded database management systems, is set to present an intriguing topic at the Embedded World 2024 conference. The presentation, titled “Predictable Real-time Data Management Over Persistent Storage Media,” will be delivered by Steve Graves, McObject’s CEO, and Thom Denholm, Technical Product Manager of Tuxera

Here are the details:

Date: April 11, 2024

Time: 10:00 – 10:30 (Session 5.7 Memory)

Topic: Predictable real-time data management over persistent storage media

Abstract: Embedded designs with predictable performance requirements face timing constraints. Their response to events must fit within known time frames. As hard real-time systems become more complex, managing data becomes increasingly challenging. Additionally, the need for data retention may require the introduction of persistent media such as NAND flash or SSD. However, these storage mediums introduce unpredictable latency. How can timing constraints be met in such scenarios? 

This presentation explores predictability aspects of real-time databases and introduces deadline management algorithms for transient and persistent storage devices. It discusses traditional transaction processing policies and their deficiencies in achieving transaction predictability. The ShadowCopy (copy-on-write) technique is introduced as a better approach for hard real-time transaction processing. The presentation demonstrates the applicability of the Shadow Copy-based parametric I/O model to NAND flash and SSD using actual storage stacks.

The Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany, is a gold standard for exchanging information about embedded systems, and McObject’s participation is highly anticipated. If you’re attending the conference, make sure to catch this insightful session!
