Abstract: 

As data centers evolve to contain time-sensitive, high-value storage, it is increasingly important that data center SSDs and all-NAND flash arrays (AFA’s) are designed with future-proof technology. Enter the NVM Express specifications. Since its first release in 2011, the NVMe™ specification has evolved into the industry standard for PCIe SSDs. The NVMe-oF™ specification, first released in 2016, allowed NVMe technology to extend to additional transports beyond PCIe architecture, such as Ethernet, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, RoCE, and TCP/IP. This breakthrough allowed further proliferation of NVMe technology’s low latency, scalable, flash storage technology. In this presentation, attendees will receive a technical dive into the key emerging NVMe and NVMe-oF technology features that are crucial for future-proofing the data center. The latest NVMe 1.4 specification provides improved quality of service (QoS), faster performance, high availability improvements, and scalability upgrades. Attendees will learn how to take advantage of new features such as Zoned Namespaces (ZNS), Endurance Groups, Sanitize enhancements, Rebuild Assist, Persistent Event Log, NVM Sets, IO Determinism, Multipathing, Asymmetric Namespace Access (ANA) and more, which are catered to meet the needs of the evolving data center. Attendees will also learn about the new features in NVMe-oF 1.1 specification and how they will have a significant impact on ROI and overall performance for networked storage.
