The P3700 Enterprise Performance PCIe SSDs provide high-performance data transfers from storage, at rates significantly faster than SAS or SATA-based SSDs. Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is a PCIe 3.0 high-performance SSD technology that provides high I/O throughput and low latency. NVMe interfaces remove SAS/SATA bottlenecks and unleash all of the capabilities of contemporary NAND flash memory. Each NVMe PCI SSD has direct PCIe 3.0 connections and provides at more bandwidth and less latency than SATA/SAS-based SSD solutions. NVMe drives are also optimized for heavy multi-threaded workloads by using internal parallelism and many other improvements, such as enlarged I/O queues.
