Storage Environments NVMe storage devices are gaining popularity because they offer very fast storage access. The Sonnet Twin25G provides performance enhancements not only by delivering higher network speed, but also by providing NVMe over Fabric (NVMe-oF) target offloads, enabling very efficient NVMe storage access with no CPU intervention. This improves performance and reduces latency. Compared to multi-fabric teamed 10G networks, a consolidated 25G storage network achieves significant cost and performance advantages with fewer cables and switch ports, which also lowers power requirements.

The Twin25G PCIe Card is packaged with both full-height and low-profile mounting brackets, enabling installation of the card into any PCIe slot. To install it, you simply place the Twin25G PCIe Card into a PCIe slot in your computer or Sonnet Thunderbolt PCIe card expansion system, install a driver, install the included SFP28 modules, and then connect the card to the network switch or directly to 25GbE-enabled storage. You then configure the adapter’s settings through the macOS Network control panel, Windows Device Manager, or Linux command line (or graphical utility).
