Adding TCP lets the NVMe protocol for solid-state drives operate SSDs anywhere while appearing as local drives.
For a long time, people in the IT space took storage for granted. That’s because drive companies continued to squeeze more capacity into less space and reduce cost per gigabyte. Responding to that, users learned that storage was cheap and essentially limitless. They adjusted their behavior accordingly by saving everything. That strategy no longer works. Non-volatile memory express (NVMe/TCP) can help.
Why NVMe/TCP? Technologies such as machine learning, autonomous driving, and nationwide networks of IoT sensors constantly collect and analyze data. Such data collection will drive up the amount of data that needs to be stored and analyzed exponentially. Sensors collect real data necessary to run our infrastructure and drive the economy. For the first time in years, there’s a question about whether we will have the capacity to store all the data that our civilization will create. Storage can no longer be taken for granted.
