The demands of the latest generation of applications—which, compared with earlier applications, rely on much larger data sets and the ability to move much more information within systems— are the catalyst for PCIe SSD adoption. The upgrade and migration to SSDs has been underway for more than two years. However, optimizing the speed and performance of these drives requires moving away from devices using the older and slower SATA interface to the latest generation of storage products that utilize the PCIe backplane connection. The performance of PCIe SSDs is further improved by the transition from the AHCI protocol to NVMe, a specific enhancement for SSDs that takes what is already excellent performance and brings it up a notch. For many users, improving performance levels and ensuring their existing systems will continue to meet their needs into the future makes the PCIe SSD with NVMe the right choice.
