Abstract: 

Enterprise and Data Center SSD Form Factor (EDSFF) is designed natively for data center NVMe SSDs to improve thermal, power, performance, and capacity scaling. EDSFF has different variants for flexible and scalable performance, dense storage configurations, general purpose servers, and improved data center TCO.  At the 2020 Open Compute Virtual Summit OEMs, cloud service providers, hyperscale data center, and SSD vendors showcased products and their vision for how this new family of SSD form factors solves real data challenges.

Join this SNIA Compute Memory and Storage Initiative webcast where expert panelists from companies that have been involved in EDSFF since the beginning discuss how they will use the EDSFF form factor. OEMs will discuss their goals for E3 and the new updated version of the E3 specification (SFF-TA-1008)!  Hyperscale data center and cloud service providers will discuss how E1.S (SFF-TA-1006) helps solve performance scalability, serviceability, capacity, and thermal challenges for future NVMe SSDs and persistent memory in 1U servers.
