The benefits of NVME over SSD are pretty compelling. Not only do NVMe drives offer more bandwidth, but the updated interface and protocols improve latency and better handle heavy workloads . Now, as NVMe approaches price parity with SATA SSDs organizations are making the switch, but what about the storage fabric? Are we just shifting the bottleneck to the network?

This week we bring in Dr J Metz to discuss storage networking technologies, protocols and standards. J shares his thoughts on what’s near end of road and what is gaining momentum.

Dr J Metz is a Data Center Technologist in the Office of the CTO at Cisco, focusing on Storage

Topics discussed:

  • Ethernet, Fibre Channel, PCI Express, Omni-Path (a new Intel high-performance communications architecture), and InfiniBand.
  • NVMe’s impact on datacenter design
  • Technology transitions (the game of whack-a-mole)
  • Is Tape going away?
