Abstract: 

With the support for the ZBC and ZAC shingled magnetic recording (SMR) command standards maturing in Linux kernel, application developers can now more easily implement support for these emerging high-capacity disks. This presentation will go through the basics of SMR support in Linux kernel and provide an overview of different application implementation approaches, including the use of available SMR abstraction layers (file system and device mappers).
