) or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification
) is a logical device interface specification
for accessing non-volatile storage
media attached via PCI Express
(PCIe) bus. "NVM" stands as an initialism
for "non-volatile memory", which is commonly flash memory
that comes in the form of solid-state drives
(SSDs). NVM Express, as a logical device interface, has been designed from the ground up to capitalize on the low latency and internal parallelism of flash-based storage devices, mirroring the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications.
