VMworld 2012: Storage Takes Center Stage (Part 2)

At VMworld, NetApp showed its new Flash Accel software for turning server-side Flash into a cache for increasing the performance of “hot,” frequently accessed data. NetApp estimated that storing up to 2 TB of hot data in server flash memory reduces application and server latency by up to 90 percent and increases IOPS by 80 percent. It also helps reduce demand on back-end FAS storage, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company said.

NetApp also expanded its Alliance Partner Program to embrace hardware and software server-caching partners looking to develop solutions with NetApp's Data Ontap storage operating system and its Flash Accel software. Flash Accel is slated to be available in December.
