NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a scalable, high performance CPU PCI-E Gen3 direct connnect to NVMe devices, designed for Client and Enterprise server systems using SSDs technology, that was developed to reduce latency and provide faster CPU to data storage device performance.
By deploying Supermicro NVMe, customers can benefit from reduced latency, increased Input/Output operations per second (IOPS), and lower power consumption. This means that customers' Supermicro solutions can perform more work in less time, translating into lower costs and increased revenues. Thus the ROI benefits for customers from NVMe enabled Supermicro servers is immediate and substantial.
The Supermicro server solutions with NVMe support are targeted at HPC, Oil and Gas, 3D modeling and Graphical design workstation, HFT, SQL Database, Search Engine, High Security Encryption datacenter, VDI, Aerospace and Automobile design center, Cluster and Supercomputer applications; in Cloud, Virtualization, and Enterprise environments.
Key advantages of using NVMe:
Large throughput gains (6x)
Substantial latency improvements (7x)
Shared common backplane improves flexibility of drive choice
Improved serviceability vs. PCI-E Flash cards (hot-swap)
Improved power efficiency
