About Us

Cloud-scale data centers require a different approach

Cloud-scale data centers require disaggregation of storage and compute, as evidenced by the top cloud giants’ transition from inefficient Direct-Attached SSD architecture to low-latency shared NVMe® flash architecture.
The Lightbits team, who were key contributors to the NVMe® standard and among the originators of NVMe® over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™), now bring you their latest innovation: the Lightbits NVMe®/TCP solution.

Split storage and compute, network and clients untouched

In stark contrast to other NVMe-oF™ solutions, the Lightbits NVMe®/TCP solution separates storage and compute without touching the network infrastructure or data center clients. With NVMe®/TCP, Lightbits delivers the same IOPS as direct-attached NVMe® SSDs and up to a 50% reduction in tail latency.
