Hardware has set the pace for latency, time for software to catch up

Jon Klaus thinks software needs to catch up to SSDs for reducing application latency. Initially, SSDs were limited by storage processors and buses build with spinning disks in mind. This has largely been remedied, so where’s the next big performance bottleneck? Latency. Jon looks at how Intel’s Storage Performance Development Kit, presented at Storage Field Day in October, effects latency by replacing the traditional Linux kernel in storage controllers.
