    NVMe™ Interoperability: Conformance, Stress/RAS Testing, and Support
    Brandon Hoff, Tim Sheehan, Mark Jones and Nick Kriczky Recorded: Oct 30 2018 55 mins
    NVM Express is an open collection of standards and information to expose the full benefits of non-volatile memory in all types of computing environments from mobile to data center. In order for products to function in the real world, they must first go through extensive conformance and interoperability tests.

    The next NVM Express, Inc. hosted webcast will feature a panel of experts covering the basics of NVMe compliance testing for our suite of specifications. The panelists will also take a deep dive into conformance, interoperability, resilience/error injection testing, and the support infrastructures needed to ensure interoperable supported solutions based on NVM Express® solutions.

    Our experts include:

    • Brandon Hoff of Broadcom who will discuss the support for NVMe over Fabrics in production environments.
    • Tim Sheehan of UNH-IOL who will discuss conformance and interoperability testing at the UNH-IOL.
    • Mark Jones of FCIA, who will discuss testing and interoperability of FC-NVMe.

    The NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MI) - Learn What's New
    Peter Onufryk, NVMe Board Member and NVMe-MI Chair and Austin Bolen, Vice Chair of the NVMe Management Work Group Recorded: Nov 7 2017 62 mins
    NVM Express ® (NVMe TM) is the industry standard for high performance storage for client, enterprise and data center applications. The NVMe family of standards consist of:

    • NVMeTM: Defining the architecture, queueing interface, and command set for direct attached PCIe® SSDs
    • NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oFTM): Extending the NVMe architecture in a scalable manner over mainstream interconnects such as Ethernet
    • NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MITM): Specifying the management architecture and out-of-band interfaces for managing PCIe SSDs

    In this webinar, Peter Onufryk, NVMe Board Member and NVMe Management Workgroup Chair, and Austin Bolen, Vice Chair of the NVMe Management Workgroup and co-author of the NVMe Management Interface Specification, will cover:

    • Storage management and the motivation for developing the NVMe-MI specification
    • The NVMe-MI architecture
    • Out-of-band interfaces supported by NVMe-MI
    • The NVMe-MI command set
    • An overview of features that are being standardized in NVMe-MI 1.1 (i.e. enclosure management and the in-band tunneling mechanism)

    At the end of this webinar you will have a good understanding of what NVMe-MI is, how it works, and how you can use it in your application.

    Peter is currently a Fellow in the Performance Solutions Business Unit at Microsemi where he is responsible for NVM controller and PCI Express switch product architecture and validation.

    Austin Bolen is a member of the Technical Staff at Dell EMC where he has been working as the NVM Express technologist for their PowerEdge server division for the past five years. He is Vice Chair of the NVMe Management Working Group and one of the authors of the NVM Express Management Interface Specification. He is also the Dell EMC representative in the PCI SIG Protocol Working Group which develops the PCI Express Base Specification where a primary object of his is enhancing the PCI Express ecosystem in support of NVMe.

    The industry broadly recognizes, and is intent on unleashing, the inherent performance potential of NVMeTM flash storage in the datacenter storage hierarchy. NVMe has now become part of the mainstream market for faster storage, with server vendors generally supporting NVMe technologies today and 19 or more storage vendors planning and deploying dedicated or hybrid NVMe-based and NVMe over Fabrics solutions.

    In this webinar, we will cover where we are today and where we are going:
    •NVM Express
    •What NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oFTM) is and why it is important
    •What the NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MITM) is and why it is important

    NVMe over Fabrics has the promise of unleashing the potential performance of NVMe drives in a scalable manner by leveraging the capabilities of mainstream high-performance interconnects.

    The NVM Express Management Interface specification allows an interoperable management architecture to support IT managers’ ability to extensively administer PCIe SSDs.

    Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; Keith Deierling, Mellanox Technologies; Fazil Osman, Broadcom; Praveen Midha, Qlogic Recorded: Oct 20 2016 58 mins
    NVM Express(R) over Fabrics has the promise of unleashing the potential performance of NVMe(TM) drives in a scalable manner by leveraging the capabilities of mainstream high-performance interconnects. There are already several fabrics that have taken the lead in proposed deployments, and others that are being considered. This panel of technologists reviews the benefits of using different fabrics as the platform for this new initiative, and explores how what value they bring to the party for specific applications and workloads. Is one fabric the clear winner, or does the choice depend upon what the end-user is trying to accomplish?

    NVM Express in the Linux Stack
    Keith Busch, Intel and Matias Bjørling, CNEX Recorded: May 12 2016 63 mins
    NVM Express is becoming the de-facto standard for talking to Non-Volatile Memory over PCI Express. This is, in part, due to the great level of support NVM Express has in modern operating systems. In this webinar we will focus on the support for NVM Express in the Linux operating system. We will show how the NVM Express driver, combined with the Linux Block Layer, enables great performance, low latency and open-source management tools. This talk will focus on how Linux delivers such good performance on NVM Express devices, and discusses some of the roadmap items that are coming to the NVM Express and block layer in Linux. We will also discuss some of the management tools available for NVM Express and Linux today such as the NVMe command line interface tool (nvme-cli).
