Microconferences at Linux Plumbers Conference: Zoned Storage Devices (SMR HDDs & ZNS SSDs)

Linux Plumbers Conference 2022 is pleased to host the Zoned Storage Devices (SMR HDDs & ZNS SSDs).

The Zoned Storage interface has been introduced to make more efficient use of the storage medium, improving both device raw capacity and performance. Zoned storage devices expose their storage through zone semantics with a set of read/write rules associated with each zone.

The Linux kernel supports SMR HDDs since kernel 4.10 and ZNS SSDs since kernel 5.9. Furthermore, a few parts of the storage stack have been extended with zone support, for example btrfs and f2fs filesystems, and the device mapper targets dm-linear and dm-zoned.

The Zoned Storage microconference aims to communicate the benefits of Zoned Storage to a broader audience, present the current and future challenges within the Linux storage stack, and collaborate with the wider community.

Please come and join us in the discussion about advantages and challenges of Zoned Storage.

We hope to see you there!
