NVMe is an interface specification developed for PCIe-based SSDs by a consortium of 13 members including Intel, Samsung and others. It was designed to be future-proof and to penetrate both client and enterprise markets, without inheriting any hard drive features.
Supermicro is the first to market with true hot-swap support for NVMe SSD drives. This feature allows easy addition of storage capacity through the addition of SSDs, the replacement of existing SSDs with higher capacity units, or replacement of failed drives, while the server system is in operation. Additionally, the hot-swap feature protects against surprise removals, random device failures, or operator errors. Software hardening from Supermicro on its NVMe server product line provides an excellent protection against these all too-common data center issues.
