Abstract: 

NVMe is being adopted inside the server to unlock the performance of solid state drives as well as newer persistent memory solutions. The next logical step is to leverage the optimized NVMe over fabrics to extend and improve application performance with large amounts of networked storage. NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe) and NVMe over RDMA standards are under definition and generating market interest. These new standards bring the performance, built-in congestion management, and ease of use that Fibre Channel brings to Enterprise Datacenters. In this presentation, we will discuss:

Learning Objectives
