Open-Channel Solid State Drives - Matias Bjørling CNEX Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation gives an introduction to Open-Channels SSDs and LightNVM - the kernel subsystem for Open-Channel SSDs. Open-Channel SSDs allow applications to directly control data placement and garbage collection within an SSD. The benefits are consistent latency and throughput in high-performance workloads and extending SSD lifetime. The primary objective of this talk is to show the possibilities of this new storage interface, its architecture, the current status and roadmap for LightNVM for both upcoming kernel functionality and user-space support.
