FMS 2013 - Richard Petersen, the Director of Marketing Management at SanDisk, stopped by the booth to explain the benefits of server-side caching with the FlashSoft solution from SanDisk. Richard gives us a high-level explanation of the software, and then drills down on some of the new features with the latest release of FlashSoft.
FlashSoft utilizes innovative caching technology to deliver the performance of enterprise flash with no disruption to applications, servers, or storage. FlashSoft works with any vendor's enterprise solid state technology, and supports all enterprise storage architectures.
We have conducted extensive testing with FlashSoft in our lab, and one of the most impressive aspects is the ease and simplicity of deployment. FlashSoft also provides the ability to utilize a whole host of SSD solutions for workload acceleration. Any flash solution can be used, with SSDs, RAID volumes and the always-exciting PCIe SSDs providing explosive acceleration of SAN and NAS workloads.
