Software-Enabled Flash at Flash Memory Summit 2023

Software-Enabled Flash (SEF) is an open source project hosted by the Linux Foundation that will be showcased at the Flash Memory Summit (FMS) in San Jose, California. This marks a significant milestone in the evolution of flash cloud storage, offering hyperscalers unprecedented control over their flash-based storage capabilities.

SEF hardware is purpose-built for hyperscale requirements and supports the Linux Foundation's SEF open source community project. At the FMS event, visitors can witness live demonstrations of flash hardware supporting Software-Enabled Flash technology. These demonstrations showcase the powerful combination of hardware and open source API technology that enables storage developers and vendors to create customized, application-specific flash solutions for their data centers. Open source support for SEF will allow hyperscalers to maximize the value of flash media.
