The major thrust of Non-Volatile Memory Express, or NVMe drives, use to be High-Performance Computing (HPC), big data, and databases, but now businesses are starting to do interesting things with them in the virtual world. Hypervisors and storage devices have now become more mainstream and affordable. They’ve been around for years but have come into their own in the datacenter this year, lowering their cost dramatically and their performance is oustanding.
NVMe devices, however, are not for everyone. Only the latest generation of servers have the PCIe 3.0 slots needed to take full advantage of the NVMe devices. Some may find that their workloads don’t require the performance that NVMe offers, but for those who currently have servers, a heavy workload and the budget should be able to justify the inclusion of NVMe devices.
