    Hey Guys,

    We are thinking about using the PCIe networking solution from Dolphinics. Has anyone ever used it? We are either going to connect two servers together to share storage speed, or connect an external raid into the server using this PCIe bus. What are your guys' thoughts?

    Do you need that low latency and throughput?

    I mean over ten years old technology like QDR infiniband has still lower latencies (~2µs) than modern pcie ssds like the intel 900p (~4µs). And the optane pcie ssds being beasts crushing other ssds in benchmarks and actual workloads...
