Presented by

Kamal Bakshi, Cisco; Mark Jones, Broadcom; Nishant Lodha, Marvell; David Rodgers, EXFO

About this talk

The majority of today’s SAN infrastructures leverage the traditional SCSI/FCP protocol. The relatively new NVMe/FC protocol has become ubiquitous in enterprise storage offerings, delivering multiple advantages including high performance, low tail latency, and precision error recovery that can run on the same Fibre Channel SAN infrastructure. In this talk we will discuss: • The architecture of NVMe/FC at protocol level • Building blocks of NVMe like NVMe subsystem • NVMe controllers, Namespaces etc. • Overview of FC-NVMe T11 standards • Key advantages of NVMe/FC, including application use cases
