Introduction to the Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK)

Customers integrating solid-state media like the Intel® P3700 NVMe* drive face a major challenge: because throughput and latency performance are so much better than that of a spinning disk, the storage software now consumes a larger percentage of the total transaction time. To help storage OEMs and ISVs integrate this hardware, Intel has created a set of drivers and an end-to-end reference...

Build Open Source Storage Stacks in User Space

With the high performance of next-generation technologies like 3D XPoint™ technology, latency will no longer be measured in milliseconds but in nanoseconds. But this rise of next-generation storage simply shifts the I/O bottlenecks from storage media to the network and software, which we predict will force development of user mode cloud storage. Intel's Storage Performance Development Kit...
