Flash Memory Summit 2022 Executive Platinum Sponsor Keynote by Jihyo Lee, FADU CEO & Co-Founder and Ross Stenfort, Meta

On August 2,2022 FADU’s Founder Jihyo Lee was joined by Meta’s Ross Stenfort on stage for the opening day keynote about the status and future of storage for hyperscale SSDs.

The Challenge, Presented by Ross Stenfort

The keynote begins with Ross, a datacenter storage expert and industry driver of OCP specifications, defining the issues challenging datacenter storage architects. Specifically, Ross identifies:

  • The limits of the M.2 form factor to keep up with performance and power and the subsequent migration to E1.S, forecast to be the leading package for enterprise SSDs by 2026
  • The thermal envelope in which 25mm E1.S SSDs fit
  • The industry’s need to guide SSD controller manufactures with universal specifications
  • Specification evolution culminating in OCP Datacenter NVMe™ SSD V2.0
  • Addressing Write Amplification with the introduction of Flexible Data Placement

The Solutions, Presented by Jihyo Lee

Jihyo takes the keynote home reviewing the challenges faced by SSD controller architects, generational solutions from FADU’s approach, and the look ahead to Gen5 and beyond.

  • Meeting data center performance when power budgets are not scaling
  • Architecting the controller for low power
  • FADU’s Gen5 Controller and SSD designs
  • FADU’s support for ZNS™ in Gen3/4 and FDP in Gen5
  • Moving beyond Gen 5 with CXL
