IBM Storage and the NVM Express Revolution – redp5437.pdf

Highlights

The industry recognizes the need for standardized and efficient protocols and

interfaces that are optimized for low-latency, performance-dense storage

media (such as flash) and non-volatile memory technologies.

This paper provides the following highlights:
