By improving storage performance for VMs, host side caching facilitates P2V of IO intensive bare-metal servers. And it saves capex because there is no storage upgrade involved. If you have not yet virtualized your physical servers due only to perceived storage performance issues in VMs, then deploying VirtuCache will help….
Host side caching software needs to accelerate both reads and writes especially in light of increasing competition from all-flash arrays. Caching writes is important even for workloads that are read intensive. If we were not to accelerate writes, the reads behind the writes on the same thread will not be…
EHR, imaging, analytics, desktop & application virtualization applications are prone to storage performance issues in VMware, that are easily solved with VirtuCache.
