Accelerate VDI storage performance with server side chaching

PernixData FVP™ software puts storage intelligence into server flash and RAM to accelerate the performance of virtualized applications.

By using FVP you can accelerate yourvirtual machines with server side caching ( ssd or ram ) no matter what storage protocol or device your organization is using.

what does it mean for you ?

if you are using or thinking to use VMware VIEW or Citrix XenDesktop you can use PernixData FVP to accelerate the virtual machines by using server side ssd or RAM instead of purchasing an expansive storage array.

in most cases you’ll find that we can reduce your latency and offload the performance impact from your storage array.

New Year, New Role

helion

I’m super excited to be taking on a new role in the Converged Cloud Business Unit at HP!

As of today I’ll officially be joining the team as a Cloud Solution Architect for the CEE&I region (Central, Eastern Europe & Israel).

I’ll be focused mainly on HP Helion CloudSystem and Helion OpenStack offering, including it’s integrations with other solutions.

I’ll soon be opening a new blog that will feature HP Helion related content. Unfortunately, that also means that I will no longer be writing posts on this blog…

Thank you all for following and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

PernixData Top 20 Frequently Asked Questions

February 9, 2014 by FrankBrix

Top 20 FAQ on PernixData FVP:

Q1: What is PernixData FVP?

A: PernixData FVP is a kernel module installed inside the ESXi hypervisor that uses local flash as a transparent cache to accelerate virtual machines storage performance.

Q2: What storage protocols does PernixData FVP support?

A: PernixData FVP supports block storage. FC, FCoE and iSCSI

Q3: What about NFS support?

A: the new version 2.0 supports also for NFS storage systems

Q4: What version of VMware is supported with PernixData FVP?

A: As of writing PernixData FVP supports vSphere 5.0 and 5.1, and 5.5

Q5: What about support for vSphere 5.5 and the new Web Client?

A: vSphere 5.5 and full web client support is coming soon. It is currently in beta. You can request access to the beta here: http://beta.pernixdata.com

Q6: What kind of Flash devices do you support?

A: We support every flash device that is on the VMware’s HCL list. This could be PCIe or SSD drives.

· PernixData also support for using RAM as Cache instead of SSD ( version 2.0 )

Q7: So PernixData FVP is a caching solution. Is it only Read cache it supports?

A: PernixData FVP supports Write Through (Read) and Write Back (Read & Write) caching.

Q8: Write Back caching, how do you make sure I don’t lose data in case of host or SSD failure?

A: PernixData gives you the option to choose 1 or 2 replicas partners. If you choose two your write data will be acknowledged from three SSD in three different hosts.

Q9: What network do you use for replication traffic. Can I select another one?

A: PernixData by default selects your vMotion vmkernel adapter. You can choose another one and put it on a dedicated vSS/vDS with dedicated physical nics.

Q10: Does PernixData FVP work with DRS, HA, vMotion etc.?

A: PernixData has full support for all VMware clustering features. The administrator will still be able to vMotion, use HA in case of a host failure and DRS can distribute the virtual machines.

Q11: Wow! Impressive, there must be some VMware features you do not support?

A: PernixData does not accelerate Raw Device Mapped disks (RDM) and PernixData does not support VMware fault tolerant protected virtual machines.
