SSUG::Digital: 012 – Lenovo: Spectrum Scale and NVMe Storage (Held in conjunction with CIUK)

In this SSUG::Digital Expert Talk, we will cover several NVMe-related topics: The Lenovo DSS-G100 is an NVMe-rich server that can be used with Scale’s DAE, DME, and ECE. We will present how to use the TRIM support that has been introduced with Scale 5.0.x on its internal NVMe drives. The NetApp EF600 is an all-NVMe storage subsystem that is triggering the rebirth of the Spectrum Scale “SAN model” with NVMe-over-Fabrics. We will present its architecture, and show how to configure and use it with Spectrum Scale. Finally, we will discuss how the “Unified Namespace” concept of the emerging DAOS storage stack could be used for a namespace integration of this new technology with Spectrum Scale.
