The IOL NVMe PCIe Plugfest is a powerhouse of the latest NVMe technology and SANBlaze helps NVMe Drive vendors to ensure that the NVMe technology passing through their hardware, software, and firmware is working properly and adhering to the latest NVMe specifications. SANBlaze’s newly released Gen4 system, the SANBlaze SBExpress-RM4, is on the forefront of PCIe Gen4 NVMe drive testing.

“We have successfully tested NVMe PCIe Gen4 and Gen3 drives with Intel, Seagate, Western Digital, and Phison,” said Vince Asbridge, President of SANBlaze. “SBExpress-RM4 testing allows NVMe SSD Drive manufacturers to test their state-of-the-art drives in a real-world Gen4 environment with hot plug and power control. Witnessing our new SBExpress-RM4 system successfully testing Gen4 drives is a proud accomplishment for our team who has worked tirelessly to make this happen in record time.”

Last week, SANBlaze attended the IOL NVMe-oF™ Plugfest, testing manufacturers’ NVMe drives over Fabric including Fibre Channel, TCP, and RoCE. Last week’s plugfest, coupled with this week’s plugfest for Native NVMe (PCIe) is a testament to SANBlaze for providing the latest technology to test “NVMe over Everything™”
