About Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Cards and 1.6 TB NVMe SSDs

1.6 TB NVMe SSD drives on some servers require a PCIe low-profile form factor NVMe switch controller card to facilitate connections between the host root port and the NVMe devices. This Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card provides high bandwidth and low latency for up to four NVMe drives. The Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card plugs into a low profile x8 PCIe Gen 3 card slot and uses sixteen lanes to support four NVMe storage drive devices.

The following illustration shows four Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSDs connected to one Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card in an x86 server configuration.
