What is NVMe storage?

by | Jan 7, 2021 | News & Culture, Technical

NVMe or “Non-Volatile Memory Express” is the industry standard scalable host controller interface that is designed to address the needs of enterprise, data centre, and client systems that use PCIe-based SSD drives. NVMe is a super-fast storage option that is up to 7x faster than SATA SSD’s!

NVMe is designed to have up to 64,000 queues where each queue is capable of running 64,000 commands at a time making it much much faster than legacy SATA and SAS drives that cannot support anywhere near this throughput.

NVMe provides an incredibly high bandwidth as it directly attaches to the CPU through the PCIe bus providing marked advantages over SATA and SAS.
