Squinting through the Glare of Project Lightning
Wikibon is distinguishing itself in SSD analytics with it’s latest reporting called Squinting through the Glare of Project Lightning. Here is the a sample and a link:
On February 6 EMC gave the IT industry an early Valentine in the form of VFCache (a.k.a. Project Lightning), the first server-based flash storage card system from a major server or storage vendor. At first glance this might not seem exciting, and the product itself is very immature and at this point obviously intended mainly to freeze the market at least among EMC customers. After all, several startups are already marketing more mature PCIe flash storage systems, and Fusion-io, the pioneer in this area, has a track record of major installations in big data environments that is already more than a year old.
