The Twizzler Operating System
Twizzler is a research operating system designed around the data-centric programming model. It is built from scratch with a new kernel focused on simplicity to facilitate direct access to persistent data for applications with minimal OS involvement and interposition. Twizzler is motivated by the convergence of the memory hierarchy through the introduction of large-scale byte-addressable non-volatile memory. Twizzler is developed by the Center for Research in Storage Systems at UC Santa Cruz.
