Booting Your OS Across the NVMe-oF™ Transport – NVMe® Boot Specification

Webcast Presentation

Our industry needs a standardized, multi-vendor solution to boot computer systems from OS images stored on NVMe devices across a network. This is critical for large deployments. The newly published NVM Express® Boot Specification and ecosystem partnership with UEFI and ACPI enables this by leveraging the NVMe-oF standard.

This talk is a dive into the details of the new specification and the design of an open-source prototype for booting over NVMe/TCP transport using a UEFI implementation.
