Pure adds more NVMe with an eye to the next storage speed bump

Flash storage is rising above hard-drive technology to deliver new levels of speed and density, a change that could help enterprise applications achieve the performance they need both in the cloud and on companies’ own infrastructure.

Key to the transformation is NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express), the high-performance interconnect that’s gradually being adopted for connections among components and systems for storage and computing. It can move data much faster than traditional protocols like SATA and SCSI, which the SSDs (solid-state drives) in most flash arrays still use. NVMe should allow for bigger and more dense flash modules.
