Open-Channel Solid State Drives - Matias Bjørling

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