NVMe/TCP is coming
NVMe over TCP/IP, or NVMe/TCP as we like to fondly call it, is thundering down the standardization route at NVMe.org and will be with us soon. All of the benefits of storage disaggregation, moving direct-attached SSDs out of compute boxes and into storage-optimized boxes, with your standard data center network. No RDMA or FC required -- just plain ol' Ethernet and TCP/IP. I/OPs, throughput, average latencies, and tail latencies that are so close to RDMA-based NVMe-oF that your applications simply won't know the difference.
