Abstract: 

NVMe and NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) protocols provide a highly efficient access to flash storage inside a server and over the network respectively. Current generation of distributed storage software stacks use proprietary protocols which are sub-optimal to deliver end to end low latency. Moreover it increases operational complexity to manage NVMe-oF managed flash storage and distributed flash storage in private cloud infrastructure. In this session, we present NVMe over Fabrics based high performance distributed block storage that combines the best of both worlds to deliver performance, elasticity and rich data services. Learning Objectives: 1. NVMe, NVMe-oF for flash data path IO architecture 2. Programming, architecture and optimization for flash 3. Distributed storage, data services
