FlashSoft® software is a proven solution for host-based caching for VMware vSphere® environments. Employing a solid-state device in the vSphere server, administrators can eliminate the I/O blender and storage bottlenecks and realize the full potential of their VMware infrastructure.
Deploying Server Flash for VMware allows you to:
FlashSoft software makes the best use of solid-state architecture to deliver unparalleled storage performance improvements. Rather than statically partitioning the cache per VM, FlashSoft dynamically allocates cache space among all accelerated VMs, eliminating the inefficiencies of idle SSD space, and the inconvenience of manually reallocating cache resources when migrating VMs.
FlashSoft software works with any standard SSD attached via SATA, SAS, or PCIe. It supports any SAN, NAS or DAS storage infrastructure.
Unlike flash deployed in storage, FlashSoft software delivers the benefits of flash performance directly to the servers and workloads that require acceleration, without requiring modifications to data storage systems. As more I/O operations run on the solid-state devices installed in servers, traffic on the storage infrastructure is significantly reduced, increasing the value and the useful lifetime of existing storage investments.
The performance benefits of FlashSoft in any specific environment depend on the latency in the current storage infrastructure, the characteristics of the workload and I/O behavior, and other factors including server and network capabilities. To learn more about how FlashSoft can improve application performance in your environment, please consult a SanDisk FlashSoft representative about a free evaluation.
The optimal cache size depends on the amount of data on the disks being accelerated, the applications running on the server, and the peak utilization. Please consult a SanDisk FlashSoft representative to discuss the optimal SSD for your needs.
