Why NVMe protocols are important for new data centre workloads

Today, data is the new fuel for business. New age technologies like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, blockchain, and machine learning – all needs data to be stored, processed and analysed. Large amounts of data are generated exponentially, with a rise in internet users over the past several years. According to ‘Data Never Sleeps’, the report from Domo, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is generated every day. This data tsunami puts forth challenges for IT infrastructure to provide low latency and higher storage performance as many enterprises need real-time data processing and faster access to stored data. Access to high performance SSDs using legacy storage protocols like SATA or SAS are not enough as they still have higher latency, lower performance, and quality issues.
