NVMe drivers are now available for all the most popular operating systems. Practitioners must understand the latest key features and architectural innovations, as well as how to achieve top performance on both client and server platforms. The drivers also have non-obvious features that enable more flexible and robust system implementations. Many new capabilities have been added recently, and practitioners should become familiar with them and should understand what they can expect to see moving ahead.
