Abstract: Rapid growth in technology is increasing day by day that demands computer systems to work better, should be reliable and have faster performance with fair cost and best functionalities. In the modern era of technology, memory files are used to shorten the performance gap between memory and storage. Sustainable in-memory file system (SIMFS) was the first that introduces the concept of open file address space into the address space of the process and exploits the memory mapping hardware while accessing files. The purpose of designing and implementing the SIMFS architecture is to achieve performance improvement of in-memory file system. SCMFS are designed for the storage class system that uses the presented memory management component in the operating system to assist in managing block, and it manages the space for each and every file adjacent to the virtual address space. A recent study has proposed that non-volatile memories are powerful enough to minimize the performance gap, as compared to previous generation non-volatile memories. This is because the performance gap between non-volatile and volatile memories has been reduced and there are possibilities of using a non-volatile memory as a computer’s main memory in near future. Lately, high-speed non-volatile storage media, such as Phase Change Memory (PCM) has come into view and it is expected that for storage device PCM will be used by replacing the hard disk in upcoming years. Moreover, the PCM is byte-addressable, it means that it can access individual byte of data rather than word and data access time is expected to be almost indistinguishable of DRAM, a volatile memory. These features and innovations in computer architecture are making the computer system more reliable and faster.
