The Parallel Network File System (pNFS) allows a separation between the metadata (onto a metadata server) and data (onto a storage device) for a file. The RDMA Layout Type is defined in this document as an extension to pNFS to allow the use of RDMA Verbs operations to access remote storage, with a special focus on accessing byte addressable persistent memory.
