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.
The excitement is clear that NVMe delivers faster flash storage, internal in the storage array and for host connectivity and with Brocade Gen 5 & Gen 6 you can run NVMe over Fibre Channel already today, providing the best investment protection for storage networking.
Come and see a demonstration of 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.
For more information on NVMe over Fibre Channel, I will hand out signed copies of the new book “NVMe over Fibre Channel for Dummies, 2nd Edition”
