OpenStack and NVMe-over-Fabrics: Getting higher performance for network-connected SSDs
What is NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF)?
The evolvement of the NVMe interface protocol is a boon to SSD-based storage arrays. It further powered SSDs (solid state drives) to obtain high performance and reduced latency for accessing data. Benefits further extended by the NVMe over Fabrics network protocol brings NVMe feature retained over the network fabric, while accessing the storage array remotely. Let’s understand how.
