NVMe Brings Performance to Software-Defined Storage
TORONTO—NVM Express ( #NVMe ) has begun to gather steam in the market, with many vendors releasing NVMe SSDs over the past year or so, while the supporting ecosystem has matured. In the meantime, @SamsungElectronics Co., Ltd. and @RedHat are collaborating to give the emerging technology an extra push. At the recent #RedHat Summit, #Samsung announced its NVMe (SSD) Reference Design platform, which can be used with Red Hat #Ceph Storage, a software-defined storage platform. Red Hat Ceph/Samsung Reference Architecture is essentially a recipe to build unified storage for enterprise IT or cloud environments that handle transactional databases, machine-generated data and unstructured data.
