NVMe is an industry-standard registered interface designed to accelerate the performance of nonvolatile PCIe SSDs. The NVMe protocol was established in collaboration by server industry leaders to standardize a scalable PCIe interface, making it easier for designers to unlock the full potential of PCIe. NVMe provides opportunities for increased data throughput and reduced latency all while reducing the number of drives needed — both now and in the future.
Benefits of NVMe:
Industry-Standard: Out-of-the-box software, drivers and manageability enable easy adoption and storage interoperability.
Scalable: Streamlined protocol with efficient queuing mechanism to scale for multi-core CPUs.
High-Performance: Optimized register interface and command set lowers latency.
