Software-Enabled Flash™ Capabilities and Demonstrations


Software-Enabled Flash™ (SEF) technology fundamentally redefines how flash memory is used for cloud and enterprise applications. Using highly-tuned, custom hardware and a host-based API and SDK, SEF technology empowers developers with control over data placement, latency outcomes and isolation. It is managed by a vendor-neutral Linux Foundation open source project that’s dedicated to enabling industry collaboration on this next evolution of storage. This session will introduce the SEF software and hardware stacks and describe how developers can access it. Once the basics are covered, we will demonstrate the hardware and software isolation, I/O weighted fair queueing, and copy offload capabilities running on the first-ever SEF Unit hardware.
