Abstract: 

As data-intensive workloads transition to low-latency NVMe flash-based storage to meet increasing user demand, the Fibre Channel industry is combining the lossless, highly deterministic nature of Fibre Channel with NVMe. FC-NVMe targets the performance, application response time, and scalability needed for next-generation data centers while leveraging existing Fibre Channel infrastructures. This presentation will provide an overview of why Fibre Channel’s inherent multi-queue capability, parallelism, deep queues, and battle-hardened reliability make it an ideal transport for NVMe across the fabric. Learning Objectives: 1. A reminder of how Fibre Channel works 2. A reminder of how NVMe over Fabrics work 3. A high-level overview of Fibre Channel and NVMe, especially how they work together
