    I think I must be missing something because I don’t understand why flash memory is required for a server-side read cache. Aren’t the contents of the cache invalidated/useless after a host reboot due to other hosts taking on the workloads?

    What advantage(s) does using expensive non-volatile flash memory have over much faster & cheaper DRAM in this scenario?
