Cloud-scale data centers require a different approach

Cloud-scale data centers require disaggregation of storage and compute, as evidenced by the top cloud giants’ transition from inefficient Direct-Attached SSD architecture to low-latency shared NVMe flash architecture.The Lightbits team, who were key contributors to the NVMe standard and among the originators of NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF), now bring you their latest innovation: the Lightbits NVMe/TCP solution. Split storage and compute, network and clients untouched. In stark contrast to other NVMe-oF solutions, the Lightbits NVMe/TCP solution separates storage and compute without touching the network infrastructure or data center clients. With NVMe/TCP, Lightbits delivers the same IOPS as direct-attached NVMe SSDs and up to a 50% reduction in tail latency.
