SCSI Express (SCSIe)

Part of the Storage management glossary:

SCSI Express (SCSIe) is an emerging industry standard for a storage interface that runs Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) commands over a PCI Express (PCIe)
link.

SCSI Express defines an interface, command set and feature set that will take full advantage of multi-core architectures, optimizing driver stacks so they can
handle the high IOPS associated with solid state storage. The standard is being promoted by the SCSI Trade Association (SCSITA).
