End-to-end NVMe arrays poised to resurrect external storage

bsdnazz

If you're not operating as scale (and let's face it most of us are not) then fault tolerant external storage can be a useful part of a resilient system. To date, the down side has been that external storage is slower than internal storage but that's all part of the speed/reliability/cost trade off - pick any two.

NVMeoF greatly improves the speed (latency/bandwidth) and and will be more expensive simply because people will pay for the speed.

It will probably be normal in 5 years time and I'd be happy for NVMEoF over fabric to replace Fibre Channel.
