Part 1a:  NVMe – New Features and Markets are Everywhere

Abstract:

NVMe is starting to dominate the storage mainstream with almost all new storage products utilizing it. The specification has moved from being a simple codification of the demands of basic PCIe storage interfaces to a standard that can handle a wide range of storage issues. Architects and designers should expect to see even more new features that will make NVMe capable of handling every aspect of today’s enterprise storage systems. In this session we will cover:

  • Annual Update from the NVM Express standards group – Dave Landsman
  • Major additions in the NVMe 1.3 standard and looking to the Future – Peter Onufryk
  • NVMe in the Market with market data from IDC – Eric Burgener

Session Chair: Brandon Hoff, Software Architect, Broadcom Session Speakers:

  • Dave Landsman, Director Standards Group, Western Digital Technologies,
  • Peter Onufryk, Fellow/NVM Solutions, Microsemi, and Member, NVMe Workgroup Board
  • Eric Burgener, Research Director, Storage, IDC

Part 1b:  NVMe – New Applications and Support Mechanisms

Abstract

NVMe is now adding the features storage designers need to handle applications ranging from clouds to clients. Cloud providers, such as Facebook and Azure, are leading the charge in building out SSD infrastructures. There are critical design considerations when architecting solutions with SSDs. Another key requirement is security. Threats are everywhere, and every aspect of storage systems must be protected. NVMe must offer the interfaces required to work with a wide variety of storage security standards.  In particular, the NVMe Working Group and TCG (Trusted Computing Group) are working together to address security requirements.

What you will learn:

  • Features needed for large scale SSD deployments
  • Features needed for SSD deployments at the client
  • Security Vision and Collaboration with TCG

Part 2a:  NVMe – Providing Software and Management Support

Abstract

NVMe now offers all the features developers need to create complex storage systems including faster and more resilient drivers, an extensive management interface (NVMe-MI, including out-of-band management and a management controller), and optimized, highly tested tools for developing user space software. In particular, the Intel Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK) offers high-speed implementations of all storage solution stacks.

What you will learn:

  • An overview and new features targeting NVMe-MI 1
  • New features in NVMe drivers for Linux, Windows, and VMware
  • How to build storage solutions with the Storage Providers Development Kit (SPDK)

Session Chair: Uma Parepalli Session Speakers:

  • Uma Parepalli, Senior Director, Stealth Mode Startup
  • Lee Prewitt, Principle Program Manager, Microsoft
  • Suds Jain, VMware
  • Parag Maharana, SSD Architect, Seagate
  • Austin Bolen, Senior Principal Engineer, Dell EMC
  • Myron Loewen, Platform Architect in NVM Solutions Group , Intel
  • Jim Harris, Principle Engineer, Intel

Part 2b:  NVMe does Networking

Abstract

NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) takes NVMe beyond the single-computer paradigm to be useful in clouds, clusters, distributed systems, and megawebsites. It can unleash the benefits of NVMe drives in a scalable manner by leveraging mainstream high-performance interconnects. Several fabrics have already taken the lead in proposed deployments, and others are being considered. The various fabrics have their pros and cons as platforms, and the choice depends on the value they provide specific applications and workloads. Tangible data and analysis are now available to cover performance, cost, scalability, and ease of design.

What you will learn:

  • Current/available fabrics for NVMe-oF such as Fibre Channel, RoCE, iWarp, and Infiniband
  • NVMe-oF Next Frontier – on TCP Layer, et.

Session Chair: Brandon Hoff, Software Architect, Broadcom Session Speakers:

  • Rob Davis, Vice President of Storage Technology, Mellanox
  • Fazil Osman, Architect, Broadcom
  • Praveen Midha, Director, Product Marketing, Cavium
  • Curt Beckman, Principal Architect, Brocade
  • Dave Minturn, Principle Engineer, Intel
