File, Block and Object storage is able to take advantage of current NAND flash to get better performance. But much more performance is possible as RDMA based storage technology originally developed for the HPC industry moves to the main stream. By enhancing a storage system’s network stack with RDMA users can see an even more dramatic improvement than by just adding flash to their storage. The technology increases the performance of the entire storage system allowing File, Block and Object based applications to take more advantage of much higher performance solid state storage. With even faster Persistent Memory on the way, RDMA is even more important to eliminate the network stack bottleneck. This session will explain how this technology utilizes ultra-low latency network interfaces to achieve this.
