OFA Workshop Presentation: Booting Your OS Across the NVMe® over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) Transport

Webcast Presentation

As large deployments become more common, our industry needs a standardized, multi-vendor solution to boot computer systems from OS images stored on NVMe® devices across a network. The newly published NVM Express® Boot Specification and ecosystem partnership with UEFI and ACPI enables this by leveraging the NVMe over Fabrics (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.
