The Open-Channel SSD kernel subsystem is maturing, the first block-device FTL (pblk) is ready for upstream kernel, and the liblightnvm user-space library is ready for use. This talk will cover an introduction to Open-Channel SSDs, an update on current progress, and what the community is working on.
