Unlocking the Full Potential of PCIe SSDs
NVM Express (NVMe) is a specification type for logical devices to access non-volatile storage media attached through a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. These non-volatile storage media types include flash memory in the form of solid-state drives (SSDs). NVMe was designed to take advantage of SSDs by reducing I/O overhead and providing performance improvements over previous logical device interfaces like SATA3 and SAS3. With maximum bandwidth for SATA3 and SAS at 600 MB/s and 1.2 GB/s, respectively, the full capabilities of SSDs are not taken advantage of due to interface limitations. Instead, by utilizing the high-bandwidth bus technology of PCIe, which offers nearly 4 GB/s with version 3.0, SSDs' greatest potential can be realized.

 

The benefits of NVMe include:
• Large throughput gains
• Latency improvements
• Improved flexibility of drive choice with a shared common backplane
• Hot-swap 2.5" U.2 (SFF-8639) form factor for better serviceability
  compared to PCI-E Flash cards
• Better power efficiency

 

Perform More Work in Less Time with NVMe
Since NVMe does not require legacy protocols, vendors can take full advantage of SSDs. Because of their low latency, SSDs handle a high amount of I/O operations simultaneously. SCSI based drives must select one data block at a time, whereas an NVMe drive can select up to 64,000 blocks. NVMe devices also access more data in the same CPU cycle, while SCSI drives need an additional cycle for each access.

Because NVMe is a standard protocol, driver software development for various operating systems has been standardized. NVMe supported operating systems include Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, OpenBSD, Chrome OS, and OS X, making NVMe implementation easier than ever for IT professionals.

As industry demand for storage media speed and bandwidth continues to grow, NVMe delivers by allowing SSDs to fulfill more of their performance potential. Not unexpectedly, NVMe will have a significant impact on the industry, enabling corporations to meet increasing performance demands.
