Is the whole industry being misled again, blinded by hype from big firms? .... 75% of all NVMe over Fabric adaptor units sold will be Ethernet-based in the next 2-3 years ... Really?!? Can you say FCoE déjà vu!?
NVMe over TCP (nicknamed "iNVMe") is the up-and-coming RDMA-free protocol for NVMe over Fabrics. Like iSCSI, NVMe over TCP offers commodity connectivity to storage arrays that get reliable, high performance connectivity via Fibre Channel.
If you’re in the storage business you realize that NVMe is the next big transformation coming. This technology promises ultra-fast applications due to a significant decrease in data access latency versus HDDs (and even today’s SSDs!). NVMe will be like switching on “ludicrous-speed” for these leading-edge applications,
Can you believe it all started over 20 years ago? Since 1995, Fibre Channel has been a key enabler of every new wave of storage innovation in the data center. It began by enabling shared storage and later led to mainstream adoption of server virtualization. Today, Fibre Channel is all about
