Solutions for NVMe® SSDs and NVMe-oF™

We have been a leader and expert in NVMe™ Testing Services for several years providing conformance and interoperability testing. In addition, we also host NVMe Plugfests where storage vendors from around the world come together to test against NVMe standards to qualify them for the NVMe Integrator's List. The NVMe Integrator's List currently consists of configurations that have proven to be interoperable and conformant to NVMe standards which provides a reasonable degree of confidence that a tested product will work well in a multi-vendor environment.

NVMe™

The NVMe™ testing service offers conformance and interoperability testing across various OS, drivers, and hardware platforms as well as PCIe® SSD and PCIe Servers. Testing here helps products qualify for the NVMe and NVMe-MI Integrators List.  The NVMe-MI™ Integrators List is now combined with the standard NVMe™ Integrators List.

NVMe/FC

The NVMe™ over Fibre Channel testing services provide services for FC/NVMe interoperability, and conformance testing. NVMe-oF™ testing helps products qualify for the NVMe-oF Integrators List.

NVMe/RoCE

NVMe™ over RoCE (NVMe/RoCE) member services include NVMe/RoCe test services to help products qualify for the NVMe-oF Integrators List.

NVMe/iWARP

NVMe™ over iWARP (NVMe/iWARP) implements Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) for effective data transfer in today's global storage network. Member services include NVMe/iWARP testing to help products qualify for the NVMe-oF Integrators List.

NVMe/TCP

NVMe™ over TCP (NVMe/TCP) test services extends NVMe across the entire data center and utilizes simple and efficient TCP/IP fabric to provide high performance. Member services include NVMe/TCP testing to help products qualify for the NVMe-oF Integrators List.

IOL INTERACT™ Software

Licenses available for the IOL INTERACT™ software, which expedites and automates the in-house testing of NVMe™ SSDs and NVMe-oF™ products. It is used to test products for inclusion on the NVMe Integrators List. IOL INTERACT software  is available for the following product types:

  • NVMe SSDs
  • NVMe/FC
  • NVMe/TCP
  • NVMe/RoCE
  • NVMe/iWARP

Customers with a membership in either the NVMe or NVMe-oF test services can also purchase additional command sets to run over a desired transport. Learn more about our software command sets currently offered with IOL INTERACT on our software page.
