Data compression within the SSD significantly reduces write amplification leading to increased performance and endurance. Alternatively, compression inside the SSD can be utilized to significantly increase user capacity. These benefits can in particular make high capacity QLC SSDs more attractive for the data center, cloud or edge infrastructure. However, compression inside SSDs is not widely available yet, and there is a lack of understanding of the implementation trade-offs and benefits. This talk will describe the implementation, interface and use cases for compression inside SSDs. The goal of this presentation is to add compression-enabled SSD devices to the Open Compute Project by defining hardware and software interfaces, workloads, and use cases. This will provide the industry an additional attribute to consider when optimizing SSD requirements for specific workloads.
