The goal of network RAM is to improve the performance of memory intensive workloads by paging to idle memory over the network rather than to disk. In this paper, we reexamine common assumptions about network RAM, compare possible implementations, describe the structure and performance of our user-level implementation and investigate various methods for providing reliability.
