When data processing engines are using more and more log semantics, it’s natural to extend Zoned Namespace to provide a native log interface by introduce variable size, byte append-able, named zones. Using the newly introduced ZNSNLOG interface, not only the storage device enables less write amplification/more log write performance, but more flexible and robust naming service. Given the trends towards a compute-storage disaggregation paradigm and more capable computational storage, ZNSNLOG extension enables more opportunities for near data processing.
