Accelerate Your Cloud-Native Applications with NVMe®/TCP for Virtualized Environments

The landscape of computing in the modern enterprise is changing rapidly. Cloud-native applications are more sophisticated and require faster performance and there’s more of them to support. Often these applications are deployed as virtual machines managed by vSphere with local NVMe® flash recommended for best performance when deployed on bare metal.

However, while a local flash implementation does deliver performance it comes with compromises in portability, and poor storage resource utilization. NVMe®/TCP offers a new way to support data-intensive cloud-native applications without compromise. It’s one means to solve the challenges of storage resource utilization, workload mobility, performance, and availability.

VMware recently announced native support for NVMe®/TCP in VMware ESXi7 Update 3 and currently Lightbits LightOS passed ESXi certification. Lightbits software with a wide range of high-performance Intel® technologies solves customer challenges for VMware® ESXi workloads delivering a powerful platform for cloud-native applications that solves inefficiencies with storage and resource utilization and offers high performance and availability in virtual environments.
By joining this webinar you will learn how NVMe®/TCP storage:

  • Simplifies architectures
  • Improves resource utilization
  • Accelerate application performance
  • Scales more efficiently
