How is NVMe-oF Doing? Part 4: “Who’s the fastest hand in the West”?

It is the fourth part of my NVMe-oF Initiators’ performance study. Before, I tested NVMe-oF initiators developed by Linux, Chelsio (LINK) and StarWind (LINK). Here, the battle ends: which NVMe-oF initiator delivers the highest performance and which one Windows admins should use?

How is NVMe-oF doing? Part 3: StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator + Linux SPDK NVMe-oF Target

Finally, I got the hands-on experience with StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator. I read that StarWind did a lot of work to bring NVMe-oF to Windows (it’s basically the first solution of its kind), so it’s quite interesting for me to see how their initiator works! In today’s post, I measure the performance of NVMe drive presented over Linux SPDK NVMe-oF Target while talking to it over StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator.

How is NVMe-oF doing? Part 2: Chelsio NVMe-oF Initiator + Linux SPDK NVMe-oF Target

While some OS-s built on Linux kernel support NVMe-oF, Windows just does not. No worries, there are some ways to bring this protocol to a Windows environment! In this article, I investigate whether presenting an NVMe drive over RDMA with Linux SPDK NVMe-oF Target + Chelsio NVMe-oF Initiator provides you the perfomance that vendors of flash list in their datasheets.

Considering how often I see NVMe-related titles over the Internet, I consider NVMe-oF to be still a hot topic. That’s why I decided to pitch in 🙂
