NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe)

High performance, low latency access to SSD arrays

NVM Express over Fibre Channel

 Marvell® QLogic® adapters are enabling NVMe over Fibre Channel (FC-NVMe). With up to 25,600 MBps of aggregate line rate throughput, the QLogic 2700 Series  Enhanced 32GFC & 32GFC and 2690 Series Enhanced 16GFC (Gen5) Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters offer high throughput and intelligent offloads that enable low latency NVMe storage to scale out in the most efficient way possible, while simplifying design, reducing overhead and improving performance.

Next-generation data intensive workloads are utilizing low latency NVMe flash-based storage to meet ever increasing user demand. By combining the lossless, highly deterministic nature of Fibre Channel with NVMe, FC-NVMe delivers the performance, application response time, and scalability needed for next-generation data centers, while leveraging existing Fibre Channel infrastructures.
