Building End-to-End NVMe Solution Leadership

With a 50-percent latency reduction compared to the previous generation, this powerful switch enables the maximum performance for NVMe storage and high-transaction workloads.

  • Server: Performance Improvement with shorter path through the OS storage stack and lower CPU utilization
  • Storage Network: Performance is optimized through a low latency network with integrated NVMe telemetry data
  • Storage Array: Performance improvement is a shorter path through the target's host port stack. Performance improvement is optimized from the controller to NVMe SSDs

Up to 60% better
CPU Efficiency
