EMC Rolls Out PCIe Flash-Based Storage Technology

EMC in February introduced VFCache, the industry's first PCIe flash-based storage solution that sits in servers and works with external arrays to increase storage performance across multiple tiers from the server to the cloud.

VFCache, which was first introduced last year as "Project Lightning," is a high-speed flash memory-based storage device that plugs into a standard PCIe slot inside a customer's server to provide a high-speed cache where hot data can be accessed at low-latency speeds while still being protected via copies stored on the arrays.

EMC is touting a performance boost of 300-percent throughput boost and a 60-percent latency decrease in Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle environments when using the VFCache with its VMAX, VMAXe, VNX and VNXe arrays.
