Infinio’s Read Caching versus Virtunet’s Read+Write Caching Software

The biggest difference is that we cache reads and writes, Infinio caches only reads. Even in a read dominated workload, caching writes helps accelerate even the reads. The below article explains how this is so. Then there are other differences as well like we assign caching policies at the datastore level with VM level overide, whereas Infinio caches at the VM level only. We cache both VM IO and VMware kernel IO whereas Infinio caches only VM IO. The implications of such differences between...
