The SMB3 protocol has updated in the past year, with compression in 2019 and further updates in the Windows "20H1" Spring release. We'll review and recap the protocol since the last SambaXP, and also provide a look forward, including an update on recent developments in RDMA to enable "Push Mode" for ultra-low-latency remote access to persistent Storage Class Memory via SMB3 and SMB Direct.

About the "sambaXP 2020 Retrospective"
In this series we will present recordings of the SambaXP 2020 in the coming weeks. These were selected by SerNet's "Team Samba". The 19th edition of the international conference on the open source software Samba took place from 26 - 28 May 2020 for the first time exclusively in digital form. Due to the changed event format and the use of an online conference platform, organizer SerNet is able to offer all talks as videos for viewing (link).
