NVMe flash storage 101

Flash storage is already much faster than spinning disk, but with the advent of NVMe – a new standard based on PCIe – flash could achieve a potential that has so far eluded it. NVMe is a storage protocol designed for the performance and characteristics of flash and will replace the SAS and SATA protocols that were developed for spinning disk and currently act as a bottleneck to solid state drives. It is, however, early days. So far, NVMe can be deployed without complications in limited scenarios, but the tech industry is fast developing ways of implementing NVMe that will see shared storage arrays with the blistering performance of flash NVMe.

These are also closely related to: "Enabling Business with NVMe-oF™"

  • NVMe promises blisteringly fast flash performance

    Flash storage has to date been hampered by having to use SCSI protocols that were designed for mechanical hard drives. NVMe is a new protocol designed for flash, and could speed flash performance by tens or hundreds of times. This, however, moves the bottleneck in the server-storage I/O path to the storage controller's processors.

    In this guide we look at the architectural issues blocking agreement on NVMe, the fundamentals that underlie NVMe and its blistering performance, the key NVMe product deployments available, and ask what will become of the storage features associated with the storage controller.

  • Flash hits the cloud while NVMe flash goes mainstream

    In this e-guide we will major on NVMe, the stance towards it of the big five storage makers and the varying architectures marketed by the smaller pioneers and newcomers to the market. We also look at deploying NVMe in the enterprise and in particular for AI use cases. We also look at contemporary scale-out NAS products, in which flash has become a key option, and flash options offered by the key cloud providers.
