NVMeOF TCP Initiator for Windows

sandilyabhagisandilyabhagi Member Posts: 4


Is there anything available for nvme like MS-iSCSI initiator ?
I have looked around and couldn't find any.
Intent is to discover/connect nvme target via TCP from Windows machine. Similar to Linux's nvme, nvme-tcp and nvme tool.
I have searched but couldn't get much on nvme.

Hence, looking to implement NVMeOF (over TCP) initiator, similar to MS-iSCSI initiator(May be), unless Microsoft is expected to release for nvme.
I have searched for MS-iSCSI initiator sample code for reference but couldn't get.
Any help in this regard would be very helpful.

    NVMeOF is a protocol that is much different than iSCSI. I do not believe that there is anything from Microsoft, and I would be surprised if they have plans for anything anytime soon. The major storage vendors have too much invested in their proprietary versions

    Usually, NMVEOF is used with Fiber Channel. It can be used with Ethernet too, but it is not TCP
