re: How To Pick The Right Storage Caching System
George, you bring up a lot of very relevant concerns about how to best use solid state caching. Each application environment will have its own unique demands for I/O and different approaches may be required for each application. The key is to understand the application workloads and their associated I/O profiles before one chooses a new storage solution. Solutions from companies like SwiftTest provide a comprehensive real-world workload modeling and performance validation suite that can be run against potential future storage systems or caching technologies. This will eliminate the risks of unpredictable response times and allow storage buyers to only buy as much solid state technology as they truly need. No unnecessary purchases!
