As the storage industry transitions towards the principal use of flash memory, a key element of that transition includes Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) and, in particular, NVMe-TCP – i.e., NVMe over Transport Control Protocol (TCP). Techniques are presented herein that support a comprehensive, centralized scheme for provisioning end-to-end NVMe flows through existing data center switches, without requiring substantive changes to switch code, thus providing a flexible and highly visible resource-aware network provisioning solution for NVMe-TCP deployments.
