NVMe over Fabrics™ (NVMe-oF™) lacks a native capability for boot from Ethernet. We will Introduce a joint model to address boot from NVMe-oF/TCP, its impact to the kernel and the entire ecosystem, and collect feedback from the Linux community. This architectural model is being designed for standardization by the appropriate committees (e.g., NVM Express™ or UEFI™ Forum).
