Virtual Storage Tiering gives you the latency and throughput of Flash with the mass storage of HDD. NetApp recently added Flash Pool and Flash Accel to VST, giving you end-to-end Flash options that let you deploy Flash where it will benefit your operations the most.


Flash Pool lets you combine SSD and HDD in the same aggregate to optimize random read and write performance, while Flash Accel caches data from NetApp storage directly on your servers. A recent Tech OnTap article describes these new capabilities and provides some guidance on how to choose the best VST options.


Check out the article at https://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-19016.


How would you use these new options in your infrastructure?
