Description: NVM Express (NVMe) (see http://nvmexpress.org) is a scalable host controller interface designed to address the needs of Enterprise, Data Center, and Client systems that utilize PCI Express® (PCIe®) (see http://www.pcisig.com) based solid state drives. The interface provides an optimized command issue and completion path. It includes support for parallel operation by supporting up to 65,535 I/O queues with up to 64K outstanding commands per I/O queue. Additionally, support has been added for many Enterprise capabilities like end-to-end data protection, enhanced error reporting, and virtualization. This project proposal recommends the development of a mapping of NVM Express commands to FC frames for transmission over FC or FCoE fabrics. Items for this standard include: 1)NVMe I/O commands; 2)NVMe administrative commands; 3)queuing model and management; and 4)other capabilities that may fit within the general application scope of this project.
