Cloud-native frameworks are becoming a de-facto choice for deploying scalable micro-services. Flash based storage manageability in the container frameworks need to evolve to deliver scalable storage services to container workloads. OpenSDS (Linux Foundation project) aims to provide a unified software-defined storage control plane to simplify flash storage manageability to service on-prem and cloud micro-services. In this session, we present NVMe and NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) manageability architecture in OpenSDS using Swordfish APIs, a case study with Kubernetes and community roadmap to deliver unified flash manageability vision. Learning Objectives: 1. Flash manageability using Swordfish APIs 2. OpenSDS Linux Foundation project overview (unified storage control plane) 3. Container flash driver integration 4. Kubernetes
