See the article here. Surely though, widespread adoption is just a matter of time. With its PCIe connectivity, literally slotting in, NVMe offers the ability to push hyper-converged utility and scalability to wider sets of use cases than currently. There are some vendors that focus on their NVMe/hyper-converged products, such X-IO (Axellio), Scalable Informatics, and […]

I’ve always been amazed at the raw power in this tool. Think of a […]
