StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator is the only software solution for Windows, allowing you to get all the benefits of network-connected NVMe storage. It is a software module that connects any Windows or Windows Server host to the NVMe-oF ( NVMe/TCP and NVMe/RoCE ) storage target. Using TCP enables organizations to leverage their existing networking for working with shared storage. The RoCE solution does require RoCE-capable Mellanox, Intel, or Broadcom cards but it also allows your applications and VMs to talk to the storage over RDMA, resulting in all I/O bypassing the CPU. As a result, more CPU remains available to your applications. StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator unlocks superior performance for your 4K and 8K post-production, VFX, and color grading applications.
