While non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies are transforming the storage landscape, the challenge of the I/O bottleneck that is caused by storage is ongoing. Intel recently announced a step in the direction of addressing the bottleneck with the Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK), which is an open source initiative and available for download at https://01.org/spdk. The SPDK enables developers to work in user space, improves performance, and makes development simpler for storage developers. We encourage NVMe supporters to check out the SPDK to enhance their systems and join the open ecosystem that is leveraging shared technology.
