Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) is the next generation storage technology for continued improvement in HDD areal density, and offers new opportunities for low cost scale-out storage solutions. The introduction of new standards for managing SMR disks can however impact host software design. New development approaches are required in order to realize the full potential of SMR technology. This speaking session presents the INCITS standards related to SMR and discusses different application design techniques for integrating SMR HDDs into storage solutions.
