Virtualize server side flash
VMware vSphere Flash Read Cache virtualizes server side flash providing a high performance read cache layer that dramatically lowers application latency. The caching is fully transparent to the VM without requiring any guest agents. Flash Read Cache enables allocation of flash resources at a per-VMDK granularity providing VMware vSphere vMotion consistent read caching and integration with VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler for initial placement.
- Reliable and affordable sever side flash– the emergence of server side flash in the form of PCIe cards or Solid State Drives provides a reliable and affordable storage medium for a vSphere environment. Server side flash provides a new low latency storage tier that can be leveraged to bring data close to the virtual machines at increasingly effective price-performance.
