Storage is well-known as an integral part of the data center infrastructure. The hardware
and software architectures of the storage system jointly determines its performance,
security, and manageability. Storage media is rapidly evolving, from mechanical hard
drives to SATA NAND SSDs and now to NAND and 3D-Xpoint SSDs based on the NVMe protocol.
Storage capacities also continue to improve, as well as I/O latencies improving from
milliseconds to microseconds. With these storage hardware and media improvements, the
storage software needs similar improvements to take advantage. Intel started the Storage
Performance Development Kit (SPDK) open source software project
;) to help optimize the performance of storage
To further promote the development of SPDK technology and its community and to provide a
platform for exchange and sharing, the SPDK China Summit 2018 will be held in the Crowne
Plaza Hotel Sun Palace Beijing on March 23rd, 2018. We sincerely invite you to attend this
summit and discuss the status of SPDK and its future development. In this summit, Intel
and SPDK users(e.g., Alibaba, Huawei, Hitachi, FusionStack and etc.) will share some
topics related with SPDK program and community development. Welcome to join this summit,
and the following shows the detailed info for conference registration.
