Introduction

The Distributed Asynchronous Object Storage (DAOS) is an open-source object store designed from the ground up for massively distributed Non Volatile Memory (NVM). DAOS takes advantage of next-generation NVM technology, like Storage Class Memory (SCM) and NVM express (NVMe), while presenting a key-value storage interface on top of commodity hardware that provides features, such as, transactional non-blocking I/O, advanced data protection with self-healing, end-to-end data integrity, fine-grained data control, and elastic storage, to optimize performance and cost.

This administration guide version is associated with DAOS v0.7.
