    Hi Chris,

    Nice piece. I’m doing an eval of Proximal Data’s Autocache and I’m curious how it compares to FlashSoft. Do you have some info on that?

      Hi Randy,
      Disclaimer: I work for SanDisk and the FlashSoft products and have been through a few evaluations where we competed with Proximal. There’s similarities and there’s key differences, but I would urge you to run your own tests. We can give you 30-60 day license key and even a loaner SSD if you don’t have access to one. My number is 609-714-0333 (NJ) if you wish to trial our software.

      Thank you,

  5. Three Example Home Lab Storage Designs using SSDs and Spinning Disk

    […] Another method for designing storage for your home lab storage is to go with a hybrid approach. This uses both flash and spinning disk in some sort of meaningful combination. Typically, the flash drives will be used as a cache layer, as is the case with Synology’s SSD Read Cache technology. There’s also the choice of putting flash into your vSphere hosts and taking advantage of server-side caching with vSphere Flash Read Cache, PernixData FVP, or SanDisk FlashSoft for VMware. […]
