Introduction- The NVMe Protocol
Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) is a storage access protocol that lets the CPU access SSD memory through the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe). Through a set of protocols and technologies, NVMe dramatically accelerates the way data is transmitted, stored and retrieved. With NVMe, the CPU accesses data on SSDs directly, enabling maximum SSD utilization and flexible scalability. NVMe allows for Storage Disaggregation and can be combined with Kubernetes for scale-out applications.
This blog explores how NVMe redefines storage orchestration in Kubernetes.
