Zoned Storage is designed to help data center architects and application developers prepare for the future zettabytes of data predicted to be created from video, IoT/edge data, or AI/ML workloads. Zoned Storage, Western Digital’s open source initiative, represents an opportunity to reap the benefits of combining SMR/ZNS technologies under a unified architecture at zettabyte scale. Eyal Bek will talk about how developers can utilize this ecosystem to take advantage of ZNS and SMR technologies, ensuring access to highest capacities and seamless integration, and do the following:
· Leverage open source and standards
· Enable performance efficiencies by serializing workloads into zones
· Simplify firmware and provide the host with system-level intelligence for data placement
· Ensure access to highest capacities and better performance
Get started now for a competitive advantage using Zoned Storage across both SMR HDDs and ZNS SSDs. Use purpose-built storage for competitive TCO now and into the future.
