In the slide labeled "VFCache hardware advantage", would it be possible for you to tell us what the comparison product ("popular card") is? I'm guessing it's an original Fusion-io ioDrive card from those numbers... I think the newer ioDrive2 is substantially faster, and more of a comparable product to the (admittedly very good) Micron P320h you're using!

If that is such a revolutionary product, which I think it is, why does it have such a bland name? There's zero exitement when one hears EMC FVCache. Something along the lines of EMC Lightning, I'd say, would be much more memorable.

The author was himself pointing, in a recent article, that a good name is very important.


Great information. Thanks :)
