Why customers are ramping with the HP PCIe NVMe Workload Accelerators


In this session of Coffee Coaching, Thomas Brooks tells you why customers are ramping with the HP PCIe NVMe Workload Accelerators with HP ProLiant Gen9 Servers.





When your customers run Windows Server 2012 R2, they may have business needs that are not met by using default settings. Luckily, they can tune their server settings to obtain incremental performance or energy efficiency gains, especially when the nature of the workload varies little over time. **NOTE: tuning guidelines are available at


Like Microsoft, HP provides solutions to increase datacenter performance with HP PCIe Workload Accelerators and Solid State Drives (SSDs), which are divided into three categories: Read Intensive, Mixed Use, and Write Intensive.



HP PCIe Workload Accelerators connect directly to the PCIe bus with the processor and memory, and are used in applications that require the very lowest latency, such as Transaction Processing in the financial industry. NVMe, or Non-Volatile Memory Express, is a from-the-ground-up specification that focuses on efficiency, scalability, and performance. With the introduction of NVMe, an official interface specification for accessing solid-state storage through PCI Express, manufacturers have a set of guidelines that seeks to release them from limitations of previous standards, and also provides a wide range of interoperability benefits.


For Mixed Use NVMe products, HP offers three add-in cards with read performance of 150,000 IOPS, very attractive pricing, endurance of 3 full drive write per day, and capacities up to 2.0 TB. HP’s Write Intensive version of the new NVMe offerings includes two more PCIe NVMe add-in cards with amazing write performance, endurance of 10 full drive writes per day, and capacities of 800 GB and 1.6 TB. These initial NVMe offerings are available in a half-height, half-length PCIe add-in card, and will support the following Gen9 servers: DL380, DL560, DL360, DL580, ML350.
