4 Reasons NVME is Right for Data-Driven Applications
August 16, 2022
SSDs have proven to be fast and power-efficient storage for server-based technology deployments, becoming a mainstay of business-critical storage for multiple applications, workloads and use cases. But when the first SSDs were offered, they used legacy protocols designed decades ago when hard disk drives (HDDs) ruled.
These protocols didn’t take full advantage of NAND flash storage’s inherently faster performance and lower latency from the significantly more parallel pathways for data flow between the host and flash media (i.e., parallelism).
That changed in 2011 when the NVMe protocol was built to exploit the fast PCI Express (PCIe) bus connecting SSDs to the host. Since then, NVMe has become the preferred way to connect SSDs to servers via multiple form factors (like U.3, M.2, and EDSFF).
Micron Technology’s solid state drives (SSDs) with NVM ExpressTM (NVMeTM) make good sense for server platform configurations. Offered in industry leading storage densities, Micron SSDs with NVMe provide strong security and performance at a compelling value for applications of all sizes. And, with Micron’s approach, SSDs are optimized for key workloads and applications.nvme-4-reasons-mbx-micron
