All Aboard the NVM Express

All aboard the NVM Express

Flash memory technology continues to evolve. We are transitioning away from spinning platters, as we move toward an all-flash future. It has been apparent for some time that solid state storage devices have been bottlenecked by the interface through which they connect to the rest of the system. Interfaces such as SCSI, SATA, and SAS have been terrific for spinning platters, but flash storage really needed a better, faster interface. All aboard the NVM Express!

NVMe Defined

“NVM Express is an open collection of standards and information to fully expose the benefits of non-volatile memory in all types of computing environments from mobile to data center. NVMe is designed from the ground up to deliver high bandwidth and low latency storage access for current and future NVM technologies.”  –
