Broadcom Samples NVMe over Fibre Channel

Broadcom announced sampling of its Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) over Fibre Channel solution on its Emulex Gen 6 Host Bus Adapters- a first for the industry.

The NVMe over Fibre Channel solution delivers 55% lower latency when used with NVMe drives compared to SCSI drives and a 28% performance advantage versus Ethernet solutions.

Broadcom said its NVMe over Fibre Channel builds on the performance improvements delivered by Emulex Gen 6 HBAs, which cuts latency in half versus the previous generation.  The combination of Emulex Gen 6 with NVMe over Fibre Channel delivers an even greater reduction of 75% in latency versus legacy 8Gb Fibre Channel storage networks.

“NVMe over Fabrics is going to fundamentally change datacenter architectures over the next few years,” said Jeff Hoogenboom, vice president and general manager, Emulex Connectivity Division, Broadcom Limited. “Fibre Channel will play a pivotal role in NVMe deployments because it delivers a superior connectivity solution by providing better performance, lossless and reliable networking with no dropped packets, and it’s incredibly easy to deploy.”
