Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is new 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 x4
connection, which provides at least 2x more bandwidth and 2x 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.
The Intel P4500 NVMe drives have the following key characteristics:
PCIe 3.0 connection for each NVMe drive
Ultra-low I/O latency, with an typical read latency of 10 µs and write latency of 13 µs
Suitable for read-intensive workloads
Available in capacities up to 4 TB
Variable sector size and end-to-end data-path protection
Enhanced power-loss data protection
Thermal throttling and monitoring
SMART health reporting
The key metric for solid state drives is their endurance (life expectancy). SSDs have a huge, but finite,
number of program/erase (P/E) cycles, which determines how long the drives can perform write operations
and thus their life expectancy. Performance SSDs have better endurance than Mainstream SSDs, which in
turn have better endurance than Entry SSDs.
SSD write endurance is typically measured by the number of program/erase cycles that the drive can incur
over its lifetime, which is listed as TBW in the device specification. The TBW value that is assigned to a
solid-state device is the total bytes of written data that a drive can be guaranteed to complete. Reaching
this limit does not cause the drive to immediately fail; the TBW simply denotes the maximum number of
writes that can be guaranteed.
