Problem Due to RDMA NIC implementation, RNIC doesn’t have remote persistent flush primitives. So one-sided write data from clients will write to the volatile cache on RNIC first and then RNIC directly sends ACK back before writing data to PM. As a result, a power loss will break remote data persistence easily.
LogECMem uses a hybrid method of in-place update and Parity logging (PL) for parity updates.

RDMA+KVS. Different with local hashing, insertion, deletion and update are expensive in RDMA environments. So a carefully index design based on one-sided RDMA ops is crucial.

background EC is mainly for cold storage, providing low redundancy costs and availability. While hot storage need to keep QoS, so expensive replication is more common.
