The Challenges with Server-Side Caching in NFS Based VMware Environments
As virtual server environments grow, IT administrators are looking to server-side caching to help keep system performance running at high levels. However, SSD-based server-side caching comes with considerable risk that IT must consider, including what happens if the flash hardware supporting the cache itself were to suddenly fail.
This report from Storage Switzerland examines some of the biggest risks associated with this storage strategy and explains various techniques IT can employ in order to mitigate them without disrupting the quality of service. Read on to learn more about:
- Warming and cooling cache
- SAN caching challenges
- The benefits of virtualized cache area networks
- And more.
