NVMe over Fibre Channel

We are at the brink of a storage technology evolution with FC-NVME, which significantly improves performance by reducing latency and enabling high levels of parallelism.
A number of AFAs in the market already support FC-NVMe and practically all storage vendors have announced FC-NVMe products to be released this year or coming soon. nvme_pdf-blog.png
The excitement is clear that NVMe delivers faster flash storage, internal in the storage array and for host connectivity. With Brocade Gen 5 & Gen 6 you can run NVMe over Fibre Channel already today, providing the best investment protection for storage networking.
We are demonstrating how you can concurrently run applications respectively on a FC LUN and a NVME namespace (NSID) with the same host and HBA at the same time.
