Abstract: 

NVMe Over Fabrics has been a hot topic since late 2014, but both the standard and community drivers have been in development until recently. Both vendors and customers have been exploring what kind of throughput, IOPS and latency may be possible with this new storage protocol. Attend this presentation to see the latest performance numbers showing NVMe running over Ethernet fabrics of different types, and learn how this new protocol leverages RDMA.

Learning Objectives

Learn how NVMe Over Fabrics actually performs compared to local NVMe devices
See how different Ethernet fabrics can support this new storage protocol
Learn details of how the NVMe Over Fabrics protocol integrates with RDMA
Understand how using 25, 40, 50, and 100GbE links affects NVMe Over Fabrics performance
