The efficiency and multi-thread capability of the NVMe language when compared to SCSI (small computer system interface) makes transitioning to NVMe over Fabrics a no-brainer. The complex challenge is which type of fabric approach is best. Arrays exist today that support NVMe over RoCE and FC-NVMe. However, there is much discussion around new arrays with NVMe over Fabric TCP support. Learn more about the three different approaches as well as the pros and cons.
