Abstract: 

NVMe-oF can be accomplished using three Ethernet-based storage transport protocols: iWARP RDMA, RoCEv2 RDMA and NVMe/TCP. This session will describe target use cases and what it takes to optimize performance across these three transports. In-depth performance data, based on the Linux kernel and Storage Performance Development Kit(SPDK) will be shared and analysed. Additional industry technology like Application Device Queues (ADQ), which can further improve NVMe/TCP performance to within the same range as the RDMA protocols, will be discussed as well to demonstrate additional enhancement for NVMe/TCP implementations.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, the attendee will be able to evaluate the three Ethernet-based NVMe-oF storage transport protocols (iWARP RDMA, RoCEv2 RDMA and NVMe/TCP) and help guide them to which is the best fit for their storage architecture and environment
