Rank #5: Redesigning Storage in the Data Center with SPDK – Intel Chip Chat – Episode 654
In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Two storage technology experts, Dr. Felipe Franciosi from Nutanix, and Nate Marushak from Intel, describe how the open source reference library called SPDK (Storage Performance Development Kit) brings higher performance to the hyperconverged data center today – and holds promise for the future.
A decade ago, when slow hard disk drives were the heart of a data center, efficiency was improved by designing software to avoid accessing physical media. Innovations in persistent memory and in networking technology have already brought vast improvements. High throughput and low latency are key. For systems that are latency-sensitive, applying SPDK can address software bottlenecks and open the way to even higher performance.
