Abstract: 

The data explosion has led to a corresponding explosion in the demand for storage. At the same time, traditional storage interconnects such as SATA are being replaced with PCI Express (PCIe)-attached storage solutions. Leveraging PCIe technology removes the performance bottlenecks and provides long-term bandwidth and performance scalability as PCIe evolves from 8GT/s bit rate to 16GT/s and beyond. PCIe-attached storage delivers a robust solution that is supported natively in all Operating Systems and a wide array of form factors either chip-to-chip or through expansion modules and daughter cards.
