    How would this differ from something like a Flex-Cache utilized by NetApp filers?

      Ryan, someone from NetApp may be able to respond more appropriately regarding FlexCache, but from my knowledge, FlexCache caches data for reads across multiple FAS systems. FVP, on the contrary, utilizes flash inside of host servers where it can be accessed with the least latency. Utilizing flash in this manner across clustered host servers, allows FVP to accelerate reads and writes and scale performance linearly as additional hosts are added to the cluster. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any additional questions. Thanks for you interest! @vNephologist
