Focus: PCIe SSD, NVMe and flash

PCIe SSD cards fit straight into PCIe slots in servers and array hardware and often brings much higher performance than traditional HDD-format flash drives. A key use case is to provide fast access storage in the server, with the shortest possible route and therefore low latency for important data. That’s still a key workload for PCIe flash, especially with NVMe now offering huge performance gains over existing SAS and SATA drive protocols, with some vendors now also building arrays with PCIe format drives that use NVMe.
