This technology fully uncouples flash storage from legacy HDD protocols, allowing flash to realize its full capability and potential as a storage media. The company highlighted Software-Enabled Flash at Flash Memory Summit conference and expo at its booth on the show floor and presented the session, NVMe Software-Enabled Flash Storage for Hyperscale Data Centers, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA.

To reach efficiency at scale, hyperscale cloud storage needs more from flash storage devices that are currently based on HDD protocols created decades ago. To resolve this, the Linux Foundation’s Software-Enabled Flash Community Project will enable industry adoption of a software-defined flash API, giving developers the ability to customize flash storage specific to data center, application and workload requirements. The project was created to benefit the storage developer community with a vendor agnostic, flexible solution that meets the evolving requirements of the modern data center.

Software-Enabled Flash technology consists of an open-source API and libraries coupled with purpose-built, media-centric flash hardware focused on hyperscale requirements and provides the tools for software developers to maximize the yet untapped capabilities in flash storage. By unlocking the full power of flash, this technology breaks free from legacy HDD protocols and creates a platform specific to flash media in a hyperscale environment.
