Opinion: NVMe Performance Will Force Applications to Process Data Where it is Stored

As Non Volatile Memory express (NVMe) storage performance increases, application design will have to change to take better advantage of the Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and bandwidth found in locally-connected NVMe devices.

This is a hypothesis I've been developing lately now that I'm semi-retired and have more time to think. If I'm right, this will have big implications for externally attached storage with high compute requirements, which we'll get to in a moment.

I base this thinking in large part on the massive increase in Input/Output performance we have seen over the last 40 years (from 3 MB/sec to 13 GB/sec). This doesn't compare to CPU or memory performance increases, of course, and networking increases largely fall in between storage and CPU/memory.
