Flash is really fast, and performance-hungry applications must be able to access it wherever it is located. Luckily, NVMe can take advantage of flash throughout a computer system.
However, accessing flash over a network can introduce problems which designers must solve. Accesses can take much longer than local flash, latency can rise significantly, networking issues can raise their ugly heads, and performance can vary greatly depending on network load and competition for resources.
Ways to solve such problems include sequence-level error recovery, prioritization for virtualized environments, and improved forward error correction. And – surprise! – all these are already part of the Fibre Channel standard or the emerging FC-NVMe transport protocol.
