ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments for over 30 years, today announced its analysis of likely storage connectivity trends for 2022.
With no new, faster storage media on the immediate horizon, ATTO Technology is forecasting a continued emphasis on increasing the speed and performance of storage connectivity.
“It’s an exciting time right now for storage and network connectivity because of the new technologies available now,” says Tim Klein, president and CEO of ATTO Technology. “New storage connectivity technologies like NVMe, RDMA, PCIe 4.0, and Gen7 Fibre Channel have opened up many paths of opportunity for vendors and developers in 2022.”
NVMe deployment in enterprise environments gained momentum in 2021 and that is expected to continue in 2022. According to a recent survey commissioned by ATTO Technology, two of the main hindrances to enterprise adoption of NVMe are scalability and management. ATTO Technology will address these limitations with product launches in 2022.
Fibre Channel saw growth in 2021 and that trend is expected to continue next year with the distribution of new PCIe 4.0 and Gen 7 products and maturation of new technologies like NVMeOFC (NVMe over Fibre Channel).
The Ethernet segment will likely see a continued emphasis on offload technologies that help to increase performance, specifically, offload technologies based on Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA). Since RDMA-capable Ethernet adapters (SmartNICs) have been on the market for some time, the foundation has already been laid to expand upon the use of RDMA.
RDMA-based protocols like RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) should continue to be mainstreamed while solutions like Network File System over RDMA (NFSoRDMA) could emerge from the laboratory and generate greater market interest.
