PreConference Seminar A: Introduction to 3D NAND (Presented by KnowledgeTek)
Organizer/Chairperson/Instructor: Chuck Sobey, Chief Scientist, ChannelScience
Seminar Description:

Will NAND flash continue to scale to geometries below 10nm? Innovation in semiconductor process technology has continued beyond many end-of-life predictions. As production volumes for 3D NAND continue to ramp, will its return-on-investment be what actually ends 2D NAND?

Samsung announced mass production of 3D NAND chips at a previous Flash Memory Summit and has been shipping SSDs containing them for some time. New wafer fabrication factories are being built, and every NAND manufacturer is sampling or mass producing their particular style of 3D NAND. What is different about them?

How should your company position itself for the opportunities and challenges that such a basic technology shift will bring? How does 3D XPoint™ from Intel/Micron differ from 3D NAND and how might they be used together? Now is the time to prepare yourself, your key staff, and your company.

Reliable, unbiased information is critical for making the right decisions! So don’t proceed (and spend a lot of development money) without a clear understanding of the fundamentals, opportunities, and challenges of this exciting new technology!

Learn from well-known storage industry consultant and expert instructor, Chuck Sobey, about the benefits and challenges of 3D flash device technologies, alternative array architectures, controller partitioning, algorithm developments, and the problems posed by the technology.

This tutorial is a great way to get up-to-speed quickly on this major technology shift. Cut through the hype and confusion surrounding 3D! Conquer the fear and apprehension regarding how 3D NAND might affect you! Build a firm foundation for yourself and your team. Learn how to ask the tough questions and know when you get the right answers!

This tutorial is designed for engineers, managers, and executives who must make immediate decisions about responding to the shift to 3D technology. It is presented by KnowledgeTek, the world’s leading data storage technology training company.

PreConference Seminar B: Introduction to NVM Express (NVMe) (Presented by KnowledgeTek)
Organizer/Chairperson/Instructor: Hugh Curley, Consultant, HughCurley.com
Seminar Description:

NVM Express (NVMe) is a specification for connecting non-volatile memory devices such as SSDs to computers via the PCIe bus. The idea is to take advantage of the high speed of PCIe (as compared to disk interfaces such as SAS or SATA), while maintaining full standardization and access to a large ecosystem. It has rapidly become a popular interface supported by almost all major SSD makers.

Storage designers and end users alike appreciate its combination of low cost, high speed, widespread support, and standard approach.

NVMe started with a clean slate to build a command set and supporting mechanism that would take advantage of the PCIe transport and SSD storage devices. It is scalable from iPads to enterprise and high performance computing. At the Flash Memory Summit, many keynote presentations and breakout sessions assume a basic understanding of NVMe. Be prepared to take full advantage of the Summit by upgrading your background with this pre-conference presentation.

Networking Advances That Improve Storage Performance
Jim O'Reilly, Independent Consultant
Seminar Description:

Large storage systems require more complex connections than simple interfaces to achieve maximum efficiency and scalability. Designers want to share storage readily among multiple compute nodes and be able to perform clustering, failover, and other system-wide operations. They thus need networked storage rather than the traditional direct-attached variety. However, networked storage introduces new tradeoffs in terms of cost, complexity, speed, latency, and other factors. Flash storage makes design even more difficult by its higher bandwidth and performance, thus placing more strain on switches and adapters. Many connection technologies exist, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, PCI Express, and InfiniBand. Higher-speed versions are available, as well as lower-latency extensions such as Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) and iSCSI extensions for RDMA (iSER). Typical issues governing selection include familiarity with particular approaches, existing use, latency and performance requirements, scalability, ecosystem (including management tools), and cost.

PreConference Seminar F: NVMe over Fabrics (Presented by KnowledgeTek)
Organizer/Chairperson/Instructor: Hugh Curley, Consultant, HughCurley.com
Seminar Description:

NVMe over Fabrics extends NVMe to large fabrics as opposed to the single-computer systems of PCIe. NVMe enables deployments with many SSDs using a network interconnect, such as RDMA over Ethernet or its competitors. Thanks to an optimized protocol stack, an end-to-end NVMe solution will reduce access latency and improve performance, particularly when paired with a low latency, high efficiency transport. Applications can then access SSDs rapidly, regardless of whether they are attached locally or accessed remotely across enterprise or data center networks.

This presentation provides an understanding of the fabrics that “NVMe over Fabrics” can use.

The discussion of each fabric begins with a short overview and then delves into its unique features and how it works with NVMe over Fabrics.

Course Overview:
  • Overview
    • What are fabrics?
    • What is mapping/binding?
    • Why create NVMe over fabrics?
