Unlocking the Potential of NVMe-oF & Software Defined Storage

Presented by

Sebastien Le Duc, Software Engineering Director

About this talk

During the last two decades, the data center world has been moving to a “Software Defined Everything” paradigm. This has been taken care of mostly by hypervisors running on the x86 up to recently. In parallel, a new communication protocol to interface with SSDs has been specified from the ground-up, allowing to fully exploit the levels of parallelism and performances of all-flash storage: NVMe, and NVMe-oF. NVMe-oF promises to enable the performances of direct attached all-flash storage with the flexibility an TCO savings of shared storage. To fully unlock the benefits of NVMe-oF while keeping the software defined paradigm, we believe a new kind of processor is needed: the Data Processing Unit, or DPU.
