2017 Ethernet Roadmap for Networked Storage
So far we have over 600 registered – Don’t miss out!
SNIA (Storage Network Industry Association) Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) with participation from Dell, Intel, Mellanox, and Microsoft will present on what’s happening for 2017 on high-speed interconnects. Mega-trends driving the industry: What’s out there today and what’s on the drawing boards. DAC, AOCs, multi-mode and single-mode transceivers, new form-factors QSFP-DD & OSFP and standard group activities: IEEE, 25G/50G Consortium, NBase-T Alliance; and more new secret buzzwords to guarantee all our future job security! (and make us all dizzy) – RDMA, RoCE, NRZ, PAM4, SR16, FR4, LR8, DR4. Coherent, CFP8, COBO.
The rate of change happening in data center interconnects is unprecedented. More new line rates and new form factors being developed now at a rate that is outpacing the past 10 years!
Driving it is mobile, IoT, and smartphones use worldwide as everything goes “online”, video and soon virtual reality. While 10Gb/s still dominates the Enterprise space, the Hyperscale crowd is driving faster speed and new form factor at an unprecedented rate towards PAM4 signaling, 50Gb/s line rates and 100G, 200G, and 400Gb/s form factors.
With only three NVME FLASH cards able to suck the life out of a 100Gb/s link, memory and storage systems are finally able to join the high-speed party!
Learn all about it at our webcast this Thursday.
Join us on December 1, 2016 at 10AM Pacific time for our live webcast.
