As a result, you can merge your data models and avoid the classic split between data in memory – which is volatile, fast, and byte addressable – with data on traditional storage devices, which is non-volatile but slower.

Persistent memory programming also brings challenges. Recall our discussion about power-fail protected persistence domains in Chapter 2: When ...
