VMware vFlash and Hybrid storage

Discussion created by valdereth on Nov 17, 2014

So I'm going through the VCP550D exam blueprint (anyone else out there taking this before the end of the month?) and I reallized one of the VMware features I have little experience with is vSphere Flash Read Cache, or vFlash.  I'm curious if anyone has done any testing or worked with this, especially with an environment powered by a hybrid or flash equipped array like Nimble.  How much benefit does vFlash offer in an environment powered by a Nimble array, if any?  On paper, I can see how it might offer some complimentary options, but real world might work out to be much different.


Anyone care to weigh in?
