Abstract: 

The Software-Enabled Flash API gives unprecedented control to application architects and developers to redefine the way they use flash for their hyperscale applications, by fundamentally redefining the relationship between the host and solid-state storage. Dive deep into new Software-Enabled Flash concepts such as virtual devices, Quality of Service (QoS) domains, Weighted Fair Queueing (WFQ), Nameless Writes and Copies, and controller offload mechanisms. This talk by KIOXIA (formerly Toshiba Memory) will include real-world examples using the new API to define QoS and latency guarantees, workload isolation, minimize write amplification by application-driven data placement, and achieve higher performance with customized flash translation layers (FTL).

Learning Objectives

Provide an in-depth dive into using the Software Enabled Flash API,Map application workloads to Software Enabled Flash structures,Understand how to implement QoS requirements using the API
