The Benefits Of NVME and NVME-oF For High-Performance Storage

 

Over the past five years, a new version of Non-Volatile Memory Express storage protocol has been working to bridge the gap between networks and NVME. This new version is called NVME-oF (Non-Volatile Memory Express – Over Fabrics) and is furthering this technology, which relies on low-latency data paths to create high-performance stored media.

In this episode of The Rugged Edge Survival Guide, a Premio Podcast, host Daniel Litwin talked with Sean Chen, a Solution Architect at Premio, Inc. The duo spoke about this new version of NVME, how it’s impacting commercial use cases and how the data center industry is taking advantage of NVME-oF through its hardware.

NVME is the next generation of source communication language. The previous language, SATA, or Serial ATA, had been around for over 30 years.

“NVME is the streamlined protocol for talking to a solid-state drive and flash memory with sole latency for super high performance,” Chen said.

The most common place to see NVME in the client space is where clients need to run several operations through different threads. Data is much quicker via an NVME at a lower latency with quickness, allowing companies to handle large storage loads.

NVMEs do have some limitations, according to Chen. While it can directly attach to a computer, which is a positive, it has to be connected locally to the server. This will limit how many drives can be put into a chassis.
