NVM Express® is an open collection of standards and information to fully expose the benefits of non-volatile memory in all types of computing environments from mobile to data center. NVMe™ is designed from the ground up to deliver high bandwidth and low latency storage access for current and future NVM technologies.
NVM Express – The industry standard for PCIe SSDs includes the register interface and command set for PCI Express attached storage with industry standard software available for numerous operating systems.
NVMe Management Interface – The command set and architecture for out-of-band (not over standard NVMe) management of NVM Express storage (discovering, monitoring, and updating NVMe devices using a BMC, SMBUS, etc.)
NVMe over Fabrics – The extension to NVM Express that enables tunneling the NVM Express command set over additional transports beyond PCIe. NVMe over Fabrics extends the benefits of efficient storage architecture at scale in the world’s largest data centers by allowing the same protocol to extend over various networked interfaces.
