Collabora’s Devs to Bring Performance Improvements to Emulated NVMe Devices

And now Softpedia was informed by Collabora’s Mark Filion about some other interesting patches contributed by Collabora’s developers to the upcoming Linux 4.8 kernel. These patches promise to add huge performance improvements to emulated NVMe devices. According to Collabora’s Helen Fornazier, it would appear that it’s currently possible to attach a local SSD (Solid State Drive) disk drive to a virtual machine in Google Cloud Engine (GCE) via an NVMe interface, but you won’t get a good number of IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second).
