A few years ago, for the readers of Storage Insiders, it became apparent that future SSDs would not end their lifecycle on a SAS, let alone a SATA interface
An optimally-running data center must have a storage protocol (a standard for storage software, features and so on) and a hardware interface that is developed and tuned for the media device.
There are three points within the storage infrastructure that will use NVMe; internal to the storage system, intra-connectivity between storage systems and inter-connectivity to physical servers.
Search Storage Germany: NVMe: New architectures go beyond performance limits (Roughly translated German)
Non-volatile Memory Express (NVMe) can not yet reach its full potential due to some legacy issues. New architectures will be able to overcome these limits.
In a previous blog post, I wrote about how Ethernet Storage Fabric (ESF) is the logical choice as the next-generation storage network because of its superior performance, intelligence, and efficiency.
Even as a mature, diverse and reliable technology—magnetic spinning disk drives (aka hard disk drives or “HDDs”) continue to grow in capacity, performance and cost benefits.
This week, Industry Outlook asks David Woolf, Senior Engineer of Datacenter Technologies at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), about NVMe and NVMe-oF and their role in storage and the data center.
