In this paper we describe the current state and future direction of research which has already verified the performance of the Grasshopper persistent operating system compared to Unix executing on the same hardware. This research is now drawing on techniques described in the large body of database literature to improve the efficiency of database operations when utilising features of an underlying persistent store.
