We pick a storage CTO's brains on Linux-heads, big vendors – and should all the admins NVMe?


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 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.

For more information and a demo, talk to us at Lightbits Labs,
