      Wasn't ZNS part of the previous spec too?

        This looks a lot like RISC-V in where implementations are only required to implement the base spec...
        Prepare to see enterprise NVMe devices that support the full feature set.

          Rotational media through NVMe. Okay then.

            That reminds me.

            I need to research a good SATA port multiplexer to buy a couple of next time I want to upgrade my capacity. My motherboard's SATA ports are full but I've got a couple of free internal drive bays and none of my bulk-storage drives exceed half of what a SATA-III link can do.

              ZFS could make use of it. Some spinners and an SSD ZIL+Cache coming off an adapter plugged into an NVMe port.

                You should get a used SAS PCIe card and SAS to 4x SATA adapter cables. A two port SAS card can give you 8 SATA ports for ~30$.

                  There's an Apple port adapter joke in there somewhere.

                    Probably for the enterprise. I'm thinking some sort of tiered solution that will "archive" cold data or something.
