Abstract: As NAND flash density continues to double, it is becoming increasingly important that SSDs can be shared across multiple applications or hosts without impacting read QoS. In a Hyperscale environment, it is critical to provide all applications with the right ratio of compute to flash capacity while maintaining tight read latency distributions. To achieve these goals, NVMe SSDs need to work collaboratively with host applications.
