SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 15, 2016 — Today, QLogic® announced multiple NVM Express® (NVMe™) demonstrations to be showcased at Intel Developers Forum 2016 (IDF16) in QLogic booth 879. QLogic is further underscoring its NVMe ecosystem leadership by demonstrating the broadest set of NVMe flash storage optimization technologies in the industry. The NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) focused demonstrations deliver customer choice in fabrics and significantly reduce latency and CPU utilization for the growing flash-based storage market. The three demonstrations this week at IDF include:
- NVMe over Fabrics with Fibre Channel – running on QLogic Gen 6 (32Gb) Fibre Channel (FC) Adapters, the demonstration shows how NVMe-oF using FC extends the reliability, availability and performance of existing FC investments for next-generation storage and reduces overall latency on FC networks.
- NVMe over Fabrics with Ethernet – showcasing the benefits of QLogic’s latest FastLinQ™ 25Gb Ethernet (25GbE) Adapters with RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), the NVMe-oF using Ethernet demonstration leverages the Cavium XPliant 3.2Tb Protocol Independent Ethernet Switch and extends NVMe over a large-scale Ethernet-based network using the efficiency and performance of RDMA, while lowering overall latency on Ethernet networks.
- NVMe Direct – leveraging QLogic FastLinQ 45000 Series Controllers, the NVMe Direct demonstration enables high efficiency and high-performance peer-to-peer interactions between QLogic 25GbE RDMA NICs and NVMe flash storage, lowering CPU utilization and increasing IOPS.
For more information and to view the demonstrations, please visit QLogic booth 879 at IDF16 from Aug. 16-18, 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
