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 created to support Open-Channel SSDs. Open-Channel SSDs allow applications to directly control data placement and garbage collection within SSDs. The benefits are consistent latency and throughput in high-performance workloads and extending SSD lifetime. The main objective of this talk is to show the possibilities of this new storage interface, report on current application developments, the current status of LightNVM, and present the development roadmap for both upcoming kernel functionality and user space support.
