Time for NVMe/TCP

NVMe was designed for high-performance direct-attached PCIe SSDs and was later expanded with NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) to support a hyperscale remote pool of SSDs. The industry has widely accepted that this new NVMe-oF model will replace Direct-Attached Storage (DAS) and become the default protocol for disaggregated storage in cloud infrastructure.

Ubiquitous standard for storage disaggregation

NVMe/TCP is the most powerful NVMe-oF technology, providing high performance with reduced deployment costs and design complexity. It extends NVMe across the entire data center using simple and efficient TCP/IP fabric.
