Performance Benefits of NVMe over Fibre Channel

NetApp’s ONTAP 9.4 is the first generally available enterprise storage offering enabling a complete NVMe™ over Fibre Channel (NVMe/FC) solution.

Fibre Channel is purpose-built for storage devices and systems and is the de facto standard for storage area networking (SAN) in enterprise datacenters. Fibre Channel operates in a lossless fashion with hardware offload Fibre Channel adapters, with hardware-based congestion management, providing a reliable, credit-based flow control and delivery mechanism, meeting the technical requirements for NVMe/FC.
