Storage Developer Conference Podcast Series

Every week the Storage Developer Conference (SDC) podcast series presents important technical topics to the Storage Developer community. Each episode is hand selected by the SNIA Technical Council from the presentations at SDC.

This week’s highlighted Podcast: #92: Fibre Channel – The Most Trusted Fabric Delivers NVMe by  Craig Carlson, Senior Technologist, Fibre Channel Industry Association (MP3, Video, PDF of Slides)

As data-intensive workloads transition to low-latency NVMe flash-based storage to meet increasing user demand, the Fibre Channel industry is combining the lossless, highly deterministic nature of Fibre Channel with NVMe. FC-NVMe targets the performance, application response time, and scalability needed for next-generation data centers while leveraging existing Fibre Channel infrastructures. This presentation will provide an overview of why Fibre Channel’s inherent multi-queue capability, parallelism, deep queues, and battle-hardened reliability make it an ideal transport for NVMe across the fabric.

Learning Objectives: 1) A reminder of how Fibre Channel works; 2) A reminder of how NVMe over Fabrics work; 3) A high-level overview of Fibre Channel and NVMe, especially how they work together.

The Podcast can be downloaded at iTunes. Download a copy of the original presentation slides as well.
