Abstract: 

The DatacenterSSD specification has been created by a group of hyperscale datacenter companies in collaboration with SSD suppliers and enterprise integrators. What is in this specification? How does it expand on the NVMe specification? How can devices demonstrate compliance? In this talk we’ll review important items from the DatacenterSSD specification to understand how it expands on the NVMe family of specifications for specific use cases in a datacenter environment. Since the DatacenterSSD specification goes beyond just an interface specification, we will also show what test setups can be used to demonstrate compliance.

  • What is the DatacenterSSD specification?
  • How is the DatacenterSSD specification complementary to the NVMe specification?
  • How can an SSD demonstrate compliance to the DatacenterSSD specification?
  • What tools and equipment are necessary to demonstrate compliance to the DatacenterSSD specification?
