Making Flash Software-Defined

Time: Wed Sep 14 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm


Everything else is the data center is software-defined, so it’s time to bring that concept to flash. This session will be an open forum making flash software programmable in the host for the data center. We’ll discuss Software-Enabled Flash concepts, the reference FTL, and the reference ZNS and block VirtIO drivers. Moderated by representatives of the Linux Foundation’s™ open source Software-Enabled Flash™ Project, we hope to cover its software defined architecture, internal workings, and their fit in cloud-scale applications.
