Abstract: 

A new class of ultra low latency remote storage is emerging - nonvolatile memory technology can be accessed remotely via high performance storage protocols such as SMB3, over high performance interconnects such as RDMA. A new ecosystem is emerging to "light up" this access end-to-end. This presentation will explore one path to achieve it, with performance data on current approaches, analysis of the overheads, and finally the expectation with simple extensions to well-established protocols. Learning Objectives Understand the potential for low latency remote storage Survey the protocols and interfaces in use today See current performance data, and future performance expectations See a view of the future of the end-to-end storage revolution
