About Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Cards and Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2s

Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2s 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. Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card provides high bandwidth and low latency for up to four NVMe drives. Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card plugs into a low profile x4 PCIe Gen3 card slot and uses sixteen lanes to support four NVMe storage drive devices.

The following illustration shows four Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2s connected to one Oracle PCIe NVMe Switch Card in an x86 server configuration.
